Frequently Asked Questions about the C2 retreat
(please add yours in the comments below and we will upgrade them to primetime here):
Why should I go to this thing?
Because we all need times to step away from our offices and approach our work a little differently. The provocateurs who will be leading sessions and workshops at the C2 retreat are pretty amazing, and we think that their experiences and expertise can inform your work. Plus, it will be fun.
But how can I justify going to another conference? Especially now? Especially a fun one?
Think about the conferences you currently go to. Are they blurring together in your mind? This one won’t. It’s intended for a smaller group–70-90 people–all of whom are dedicated to exhibitions and visitor experiences. No one trying to sell you ticketing systems. No one droning on about their project. Lots of opportunities to really connect with people and tackle some of the specific problems you face every day.
Heck, will I even have a job in 2009?
Probably, but even if you don’t, high level networking is the best investment you can make in your career.
How do I know this isn’t some kumbaya BS? I saw yoga on the schedule.
When in California, do as the … yes, it’s true that some of the optional free-time activities may feel a little woo-woo to you. But they have all been designed to allow you to experiment with creativity and collaboration in new ways, something that another night at the bar probably won’t offer. We want to make this a true retreat so you can really activate your creative collaborative brain, rather than your stressed-out isolationist one. Plus, the main sessions are all in-depth, focused workshops with nary an “om” in sight.
