THE ROLE OF BUSINESS CHOICES
IN SHAPING A BETTER FUTURE

Madrid, 18-20 October 2019

About
the Choice Conference

A world at the edge of a deep socio-technical disruption needs focus and care on how to generate the new.

The Choice Conference is a space to explore, experiment and co-learn around the ecosystemic implications of any choice in business. 

In order for organizations to survive in the coming decade, and for our civilization to thrive in this era of Transition, new practices need to come, new tools and new possible futures.

“I leave to various future times, but not to all, my garden of forking paths.”
Jorge Luis Borges

We all make important decisions about our way of working, strategy, and presence in the markets. 

These choices build up into the ones we are making as a civilization, impacting the world at large. Concepts like sustainability, growth, performance, and impact are assuming a new meaning. New questions emerge that entail deeper possibilities and broader responsibilities.

How
the CC works

The Choice Conference is a community working and staying connected digitally for the whole year, and coming together in 2 days of live sharing and learning once per year.

2019 marks the beginning of this journey, with our live gathering in Madrid, on October 18th and 19th. We are willing to approach the Twenty-Twenties already walking together.

With us in #theCC19 journey, bringing their experiences and nurturing our shared sensemaking:

Why taking part
into the CC

We know that taking two days to attend a live event is a luxury nowadays, especially for the people that should be there the most. 

On the other hand, we are out of time and can’t afford not coming together.

The convergence of disruptive technologies, from AI to biomechatronics, the pressure of an upcoming abrupt change of the biosphere, from climate crisis to biodiversity decline, and the collapse of society at large as we know it, from capitalism itself to our governance institutions, are just some of the key factors at play in an unprecedented moment in recorded history.

Your market is going to change radically, if it will keep existing. Your job is going to be obsolete, while radically new ones will be needed. Our children are at risk of living in a world of war-like turmoil and difficulties. And it is a fact that all of this will play out in the next few years.

Choice Conf people
Here go the reasons for being at the Choice Conference:

Explore the multiple and multi-context streams of disruption at play, to understand their implications.

■ Make-sense together through real-life stories and cases, to sense what is emerging and understand what we want to do about it.

■ Get inspiration about the unprecedented possibilities that lie in this unique moment in history, and be energized by the work, care, fun you’ll share with other participants from the whole world.

■ Connect in a community of communities, to leverage the power of an ecosystem, transcend the walls of your own organization and stay in touch in the upcoming common evolution.

■ Learn about approaches, practices and tools that are already there to support you in the path you’ll choose to walk with your organization, in your unique journey within this shared landscape.

And here follows a list of who should really be there:

Forward-thinking entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.

Decision-makers from companies, institutions, NGOs.

Consultants and change-related service providers.

Circular, regenerative, and sustainability-related agents

Artists, storytellers, sense-makers.

Young people starting to shape their work path.

Anybody who cares about helping our civilization in making truly good choices.
