Event: Corporate Rebels & Moving From Hierarchy to Network [30 May]

Causeit is proud to participate in @petervan's Corporate Rebels United. We first met Peter Vander Auwera in his work with @innotribe (a Causeit client), and are glad to support his work of helping the corporate rebels and misfits of the world find the best way to apply their brilliance to pressing global issues.  

Causeit will be speaking as part of Corporate Rebels United's 24-hour Global Rebel Jam, on the topic of how to prepare organizations for the transition from hierarchies to networks, build feedback loops and cultivate the business case for empathy. Causeit's Principal, MJ Petroni, will be speaking from 2:30-3:00 PT; login and registration details are below, along with some context from Corporate Rebels United.

Disruptive times call for positive, creative disruptors

It’s easy to be an innovator and entrepreneur in start-up. Not so inside large organizations -- companies, government agencies, healthcare systems.  The competencies and mindset you need to create change and succeed are different for rebels inside the organization.

The good news is that in today’s hyper-connected world we have the possibility to join forces - across distances and time zones - and create a critical mass of change agents capable of accelerating innovation & transformation globally

That’s why we’re holding a  free, online 24-hour Rebel Jam with fascinating speakers, inspiring entertainment and provocative discussions every hour, with hosts from Europe, North America and Asia.  Our aim: empower the rebel to be able to create positive change, understanding the considerable risks and challenges that will arise.

On May 30-31, 2013, Rebels at Work and Corporate Rebels United will hold a 24 hour on-line Rebel Jam via WebEx. All you’ll need is to be able to connect to the Internet and clear your calendar.

You can tune in any time—or all 24 hours if you’re one of the crazy ones—to learn from Rebels about:

What has helped them to be successful?

Setbacks and obstacles they’ve experienced and how they’ve navigated through them.

Habits that help them stay creative, positive and respected.

There will be time after each speaker for questions and conversations to encourage as much learning and camaraderie as possible in an online way. We’ll also be inviting performers and artists to share and perform their work with us to fill our rebel spirits, and just have some fun.

The conference kicks off on May 30 at noon in Europe; 6 a.m. North America East Coast; 3 a.m. North America Pacific, and 8 p.m. Sydney.
