  • The Making of the Modern Office

    by Jennifer Crystal, Dan Patterson, DeeAnna McPherson and Emily Peters

    In the capital of the latest tech boom, developers work late into the night creating the next big thing. But they take office culture just as seriously, fueling behavior that is reaching a level of froth not seen in a decade. Some web startups are partying like it's 1999. Companies say the fierce competition for talent among startups has necessitated extraordinary perks meant to attract and retain employees. But what makes startups a great place to work? Are they things like creative benefits, core values, philanthropy and dogs? This session is focused on creating uniquely successful and fun working environments with disruptive leaders from cleantech, healthcare, and enterprise tech startups.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Sunday 11th March

    In Brazos, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown/Convention Center

  • The Future of Work and the Free Radical

    by Althea Erickson, Josh Rubin, Scott Belsky, Benjamin Dyett and Richard Schatzberger

    How we work is changing. But where we work isn’t.

    Over the last ten years a new way of working has emerged, along with some people who live it every day. They’re available 24/7. They network endlessly, and then plug their skills into others’ in surprising combinations. They choose when and how they do what they do, on their terms. They don’t want job security – they want career fluidity. We call them free radicals. And they’re creating the future of work.

    But when they look for a place to do all that, the options are weirdly outdated: office, home, or on the go – say, a café. Those are actually poor choices. Offices mean fixed cost and daily routine. Home is isolated and full of distractions. And cafés get old after the second latté.

    Be transported by this panel of experts into the future of work, as they walk you through their vision of the ideal work experience for free radicals just like you.

    At 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Tuesday 13th March
