Recognising that whilst parallel stream workshops at a conference offer attendees and session sponsors the opportunity to meet and discuss very focussed topics of interest, that traditional format also has limitations in terms of competing for attention, accessibility and legacy. 

In a business world increasingly comfortable online, conscious of operating costs, work-life balance and sustainability the Genesis Innovation Workshops provide benefits for all as follows:

Sponsors – the opportunity to have a non-competing time slot with maximal accessibility to engage with all delegates, including the digital only attendees. Recording of the session providing post-event dissemination opportunities.

Delegates - the opportunity to attend all the workshops of interest around the in-person day. No requirement to choose between parallel sessions or sacrifice the valuable in-person networking time. 

Organised by expert partners and international collaborators, these one-hour live and interactive online sessions enable Genesis delegates to gain insight and discuss the topic whilst making more targeted connections.
