Due to the current global situation, businesses are now tackling new challenges and striving to meet unprecedented needs. Professionals in almost every industry, ranging from business developers, marketers, entrepreneurs, startup founders and CEOs- are looking for answers.
Our speakers will deliver valuable content tailored to the current global situation in order to provide our attendees with relevant knowledge to get their business and personal growth back on track.
The content received at BRAND MINDS 2020 covers every aspect of starting, running and developing a business, including marketing and social media, how to create a positive company culture, how to differentiate from your competitors, how to become less fragile both as a business and as an individual, how to inspire your team etc.
3. DOUBLE VALUE: Get 2x the value for your investment
Bringing Brené Brown, Simon Sinek, Nicholas Nassim Taleb, Reneé Mauborgne, Nick Vujicic and Neil Pasricha together on the same stage – you have one conference right there. Add nine more speakers and you get two conferences in one.
I would argue it’s an opportunity that doesn’t come twice and you should grab it with both hands. Just think of how much you can gain if you attend.
4. GLOBAL NETWORK: An elite professional network with the unique opportunity to scale your business internationally
Your network is your net worth. No one does business alone. You need business partners, suppliers, customers and employees. In short, you need to connect with people. And the best way to do it is through business networking.
Successful businessman Robert Kiyosaki said this: The richest people in the world look for and build networks, everyone else looks for work.
Networking is possibly one of the most important soft skills for entrepreneurs.
BRAND MINDS 2020 provides attendees with a complex networking platform allowing them to connect with business professionals in 50 countries.
Are you looking to expand your business to Italy or Australia? France or Turkey? Dubai or Slovenia? Now you can!
Our event’s networking platform allows you to search participants by country, job title, industry, interests or ticket type. You can connect with them through messaging and private video calls over the course of the entire 3-day event. Which is a big benefit compared to in-person events where you could only network during half-hour breaks or over lunch. You can also start discussion groups which you can leverage to get your message to a group of people at the same time.
First-class ticket holders will benefit from Q&A sessions with our speakers and private chat rooms where they can talk to other first-class ticket holders.
5. SAVE TIME & MONEY while still investing in your BUSINESS EDUCATION
Getting that conference attendance confirmation in your email – what a thrill! But that was the easy part of everything that attending a conference entails.
Now begins part two: booking your flight, making arrangements at work and in the family, finding a hotel close to the conference venue, transport arrangements to and from the airport etc.
Depending on where you are flying in from, all that is time-consuming and you have to be prepared to spend a few thousand dollars.
By attending BRAND MINDS Live, you save time and money while still investing in your business education. Just think about this: the combined experience of our speakers amounts to 250 years, which you will receive in only three days.
Change your mindset to unlock the opportunities our event provides!
6. THE MOST COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE: Attending from the comfort of your own home
Are you a morning person? Well, if you are not, I have good news.
If BRAND MINDS were an in-person event, you would have to wake up at six in the morning (the latest!), get out the door having had only a sip or two of coffee and arrive at the venue in time for registration. If you left the house around eight, you ran the risk of getting to the venue late on account of the Bucharest morning traffic and driving around the venue for minutes before finding a parking spot.
With BRAND MINDS 2020 going online exclusively, that’s something else you don’t have to worry about. Just grab your favourite coffee, settle in your comfortable chair, login into our platform and enjoy the conference.
7. BEING IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE: More people to meet, more opportunities for success
You come to business conferences for content and networking. But how many people can you talk to during the short breaks between speakers sessions, three, five?
By attending the online edition of BRAND MINDS, you can schedule meetings with a far higher number of professionals.
In real life, you talk to one person at a time; online, you can talk to two or three people simultaneously. More people met in the same amount of time means more opportunities for success.
8. EXCLUSIVE ACCESS: Access to recorded speaker sessions available for 30 days
You get a message from the office during your favourite speaker’s session: something happened and your presence is required urgently. You leave the conference bummed out. That particular session is lost. It’s not like you could borrow your colleague’s notes, you’re not in school anymore. It’s frustrating.
With BRAND MINDS going online, you can rule out this unfortunate experience.
Can’t attend one of the three days of the event? You can log in into the live stream platform and watch the recorded sessions whenever it suits you. The recorded sessions are available for you to watch for 30 days.
9. ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT: You are supporting a sustainable future by joining an environmental-friendly event
BRAND MINDS believes it’s our responsibility to develop sustainability for future generations and to contribute to the world’s effort to reduce greenhouse emissions.
That’s why two years ago we launched the BRAND MINDS Forest Project whose mission is to plant a tree for every participant. Last November, together with 150 volunteers, our team planted 3000 locust trees (read the story).
According to the latest statistics, the global aviation industry produces around 2% of all human-induced greenhouse gas emissions. One of the targets set by the Paris Agreement is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030.
By attending BRAND MINDS Live from your own living room, avoiding flights and traffic, you help save 25 tons of CO2 emissions in total (1,5 kg per participant), Kuwait’s carbon dioxide emissions per capita in 2017.
