Insites: ConfShop

An intimate day of sharing, learning, openness and discussion focused on working in the web industry

5 July 2013 from 9am to 5pm

We’re big fans of conferences, however, we often find that the really valuable conversations are had off-stage, in the bar, at the after party, and over hangover-curing breakfast ‘meetings’.

We believe we need more of these conversations! If you agree you’ll definitely want to join us in London UK on Friday 5th July.

Unlike traditional conferences, at Insites: ConfShop we want to put everyone centre stage. There’s no speakers to entice you along, no tracks to choose from and certainly no “them and us”.

As we said before our Insites projects (The Tour, The Book, Xmas Special) are all about sharing stories, being open, and learning from each other — and ConfShop is certainly no different in that respect.
We want to hear your stories, your experiences, and your ideas. Whether you are new to the industry or a seasoned professional we encourage you to join us.

Let’s learn from each other, tackle the difficult issues affecting our businesses, discuss the problems we all share, and above all celebrate the industry we all love and work in. There’s been far too much negativity of late and it’s time to embrace our community and our craft in a positive and affirmative way.

Insites: ConfShop will focus around four groups, each containing around 25 people. During the day your group will discuss a number of loosely-themed topics (subject to change):

  • Client work and products (how can we move from client focussed businesses to product focussed companies)
  • Business issues (VAT, tax, accounting, pitching, contracts, finding work and beyond)
  • Side projects (how to find the time and create income streams)
  • Working in the industry (work/life balance, keeping up, learning and more)

For each topic, one of our carefully-chosen group ‘curators’ will keep things on track and ensure every voice is heard. After you’ve attended all four group sessions we’ll convene en-masse to round up the big themes of the day.
