Search in WPP Stream


Stream is a family-style event known as an “unconference”, which means everyone, including you (!) contributes to the agenda. We’ll run a handful of main stage Luminary Talks, but the majority of each day will be taken up by one-hour sessions, known as Discussions, suggested and lead by you, the participants. 

Previous topics include: “How far can HealthTech really go?”; “We need permanent rebellion”; “Complacency: the cancer of humanity”; “We don't know how the sharing economy will affect your business, but we did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night”; “PUTTING THE SOCIAL INTO SELLING”; “David and Goliath, who'll win?” and “My Gen Z kid doesn't believe in brands or shopping together anymore”.
In the mornings and the evenings, we’ll run a variety of social and sporting activities; ranging from cooking dinner together, PPTX Karaoke for the consummate talkers, drone flying and time for you meet and talk to your fellow guests without an agenda.
