Discussions

Unlike traditional media conferences, there are no keynotes and PPTX presentations at Stream. Instead, we focus on small working groups of 1h that allow you to share your expertise, and test new, or provocative ideas in an intimate setting.

Similar to a collage campus, Stream is set up with 7-8 ‘classroom’ spaces, all outside, in a variety of tents, and in the garden terraces. Each classroom has seating for 30 guests, a flipchart and pens, and a small clock to keep time.

The agenda for the three-days is decided onsite – when guests add their ideas to the schedule, on two huge white boards, known as the Big Boards. At any time 7-8 sessions can run concurrently, with 1-2 informal sessions on the main-lawn.

Next steps: We encourage guests to share their ideas for sessions in advance, so that we can help group similar ideas together, and ensure we have good coverage of all the big topics. Suggesting a discussion topic doesn’t mean you have all the answers. Instead, good discussions favour a punchy question, debate and willingness to hear many points of view.

How is digital/tech/social media affecting our health?

Every now and then we see headlines proclaiming that various aspects of tech are bad for us. Apparently social media in particular is doing awful things to our health (sorry Facebook!)...but is this really true? How should we, as an industry that makes heavy use of digital/social media, think about this and should we be concerned about our consumers? Importantly, how can we bring science into this debate? This session will share some of the science and then see where the discussion/debate goes.
