Many of us have attended conferences and enjoy the connections and conversations that come from attending them. For me, these conversations are the biggest take-away from a conference and I wanted them to be the focus of an event. That’s how the 1on1 concept was born.
Instead of an event filled with speakers who talk at you, we wanted to create an event where you could interact directly with an expert about their crafts, their stories, and their life’s good work. We also wanted to keep it local to build community and increase awareness about the talent and knowledge in our own backyards.
What do you love? What do you itch to know more about? 1on1 is an opportunity to talk with someone who’s passionate about things you’re also passionate about — whether it’s professional or personal. Each attendee will get 30 minutes of personal one-on-one time with their chosen expert as well as the opportunity to make new connections with attendees or rekindle connections from the past.
nGen Works is taking on the role of an incubator these days, which means we can connect with each other and launch projects and events like 1on1 while balancing time on client services. This allows us nGeneers time to kick ass and do great work for clients, but it also lets us spend time on the things we love while fostering growth in our local communities.
We’re very excited about this initial 1on1 Seattle channel, and want to bring it to other cities later in the year. So, if you’re not in Seattle, stay tuned for new events popping up around you.
