What is a MEETx event?
Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. By organizing a MEETx event, you can create a unique gathering in your community that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform. A MEETx event is a local gathering where live CWSIR-like talks and performances are shared with the community. MEETx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each MEETx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.
A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
What a MEETx event is not:
A MEETx event isn’t an industry or marketing conference. It isn’t limited to one topic or field. It isn’t used to sell something.
A MEETx event is not organized by or for special-interest political, religious or commercial groups.
A MEETx event cannot be used to raise money, not even for a charity.
A MEETx event cannot partner with another conference or event.
A MEETx event can’t be co-branded with an institution except under specific license types – for a college or university, or for internal events (for corporations and organizations).
A MEETx event is not a platform for professional or circuit speakers, such as motivational speakers and professional life coaches. Its purpose is to give a platform to those who don’t often have one.
A MEETx event is not focused solely on entrepreneurship, business or technology. Diversity of topics is key!
MEETx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of CWSIR’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” MEETx brings the spirit of CWSIR to local communities around the globe through MEETx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities. MEETx events include live speakers and recorded CWSIR Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by CWSIR. These events are not controlled by CWSIR, but event organizers agree to abide by our format, and are offered guidelines for curation, speaker coaching, event organizing and more. They learn from us and from each other.
Why under 25 minutes?
This short talk model works, since it only demands the audience’s attention for a short period of time, decreasing the chance of minds wandering or daydreaming about lunch. In fact, some of our greatest CWSIR Talks have been as short as 10 minutes long!
What is a great, well-formed idea?
It can actually be one of two things:
Something that’s new and surprising; an idea or invention that your audience has never heard about.
A great basic idea (that your audience has maybe already heard) with a compelling new argument behind it that challenges beliefs and perspectives.
