NEW YORK CITY

WELCOME TO WORLDBLU LIVE 2008!

WorldBlu LIVE is the only conference in the world that connects you to directly to the top leaders of organizations on the WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces™ as well as other thought-leaders and mavericks who will share their unique stories, best practices, and leadership strategies for building a world-class democratic workplace.

WorldBlu List awardees have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report, BusinessWeek, Fortune Small Business Magazine and other media globally. Now, for the first time, we're bringing their remarkable stories to you.

Our goal: Inspire the creation of 20,000 democratic organizations around the world by 2020.

A TWO-DAY EXPLORATION

In order to achieve our goal, we're convening CEOs, inspiring thought-leaders, authors, and mavericks who not only speak about why democracy is a key to an organization's competitive advantage but how it's also changing the way we live our lives - in the worlds of music, entertainment, sports, education, media and more.

At a time when the Gallup organization reports that nearly two-thirds of the US workforce is disengaged at work, talent wars are heating up, and business leaders are looking for ways to not just build a successful business but also change the the world in the process, WorldBlu LIVE offers a two-day exploration into these timely and dynamic issues.

In addition to the fascinating presentations, conversations, and networking opportunities with people from all over the world, registration at WorldBlu LIVE entitles each participant to experience a performance of the democratic and conductorless Grammy-award winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall the evening of Thursday, October 16th.

INSPIRATION + PRACTICAL TOOLS

WorldBlu LIVE 2008 participants will:

  • Learn best practices and leadership lessons from the CEOs of the WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces™ 2008.
  • Discover how running your organization democratically is a key to your ability to attract and retain top talent, boost innovation, and benefit the bottom-line.
  • Learn how "lifestyle democracy" is changing the way we live and work.
  • Be inspired by the global impact organizational democracy can have on building a better world.

As always, there will be entertaining performances, spirited discussion, provocative dialogue, experiential learning and surprises throughout. We will leave our time together in one of the most vibrant cities in the world with an inspired sense of our potential and the practical tools for how to reinvent and re-imagine the future of work.

AN EVENT FOR THOUGHT-LEADERS + ENTREPRENEURS

This is an event for entrepreneurs, C-level executives, next generation business leaders, innovators, influencers, cultural creatives, thought-leaders and globally-minded citizens who are in positions to influence the way their organizations - and the world - works.

We expect WorldBlu LIVE 2008 to sell out - so don't wait! Space is limited in order to maintain the quality of the overall experience, so we encourage you to REGISTER NOW.
