Influx curated conference- june 11th- more speakers announced

April 2, 2009

After a brief hiatus, the Influx conference is back with a difference.
After doing a little bit of research we discovered that now is not the
time for $800 conferences with 6 speakers each giving 40 minute
presentations, so we’ve adopted a different approach with Influx Curated; more quality speakers and shorter presentations for fewer dollars.

The twist we’ve added is the “Curated” part. Again, from our
extensive research we’ve learned that good speakers have interesting
friends, so we are asking them to invite those friends, each of our
speakers gets to invite 2 of their friends.

How this works…

main speakers kicks off and his or her friends follow and we end up
with a question and answer a process we get to repeat a few times with
the obligatory breaks for coffee and lunch.

Our goal is to
showcase a wide variety of inspiring and optimistic perspectives and
have some great conversation together about them.

It would be great if you could join us at the Fort Mason Center, San Francisco on June 11th, 2009.

We have a great line up of speakers from the likes of; Eat Big Fish, Method, Apple, Mozilla Foundation, IDEO, On Your Feet, Good Magazine, Peclers, Digg, Nest Naturals, Wired and others.

The great news is that it costs $99 and we are even throwing in the food.

We’ve just added some new speakers…

Alexis Madrigal of Wired is one of our foundation speakers at Influx Curated, like all other foundation speakers, inviting two guests.

Since we are seeking inspiration from a wide range of people inside and
outside the communication space, it’s great that Alexis is bringing
guests with a global perspective on sustainable solutions.

Heather Flemming is the founder of Catapult Deisgn.
She’s a designer and engineer focused on providing human centered
solutions for people in the developing world. She’s recently been
working on a wind turbine for rural villages in Guatemala, is a member
of Engineers Without Borders and was a PopTech Social Innovation Fellow
in 2008.

Joshua Kaufmann is a co-founder of Regional.
Joshua has worked with eBay to help it become more relevant in global
markets, the Institute for the Future to develop its Green Health
conference. learned about how Cuba uses technology and has been working with Wexla in Austria to develop the first truly responsible shoe.
