Speak to your boss. Go now. Go and do it. Ask them if they have heard of Pause Fest. Tell them how badly you’d like to attend. Being the world’s leading festival for technology and creativity, this is undoubtedly one you can’t miss.
Attending will be 2,000 of the most amazing global creators, leaders of thought, and builders of the future. They will all be talking about the required innovation to get to where we need to be. They will also spend quite a bit of time talking about what is happening in your industry. This event is not up for debate – you have to be there.
The boss asks – “right, tell me more – what should I expect you to be getting up to?”
You tell them:
I’ll be listening to the best speakers out there about endless innovation and receiving endless hi-five’s.
I’ll be attending forward-thinking workshops and incredible experiences.
I’ll meet people from leading start-ups, and see VC’s, Pause Incubator, and the Tech Garden Expo.
I’ll be networking with some of the best and attending mentoring sessions.
For those of you who are that-way-inclined, there is even a VIP dinner, business breakfast, and an after-party on launch night, with ongoing entertainment.
