Packing List


Wednesday

The majority of our day to day is spent focused on work and we often forget to make time for our hobbies. This year we would like to make time to for our hobbies. Is there an art form you want to share, a song you want to play for us or a game you invented? Show and tell time: Bring a hobby or passion project that you would like to share with the other participants.

Thursday

Nothing. Come as you are. 

Friday

Prepare your "Biggest Mistake" story - something you really screwed up in the last 12 months. This story doesn't have to be professional - but it should effect your performance at work. You will share this in small groups and with others throughout the weekend. 

Saturday

Do you have something really neat that you want to share with others? We will organize short lightning talks that will allow each of us to promote something innovative, experimental, or creative that we've done in our businesses that others could learn from.
