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 tee-pees, 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 two days is decided onsite – when guests add their ideas to the schedule, on two huge white boards (Discussions boards) at the venue, known as the Big Boards. At any time 7-8 sessions can run concurrently, along with 1-2 workshop sessions. 

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.

Additionally, please note that despite submitting a topic online, you will have time to rethink as the final topic submission is done at the event in the form of a write-up on our Discussions boards . 

If you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts, let us know.

Being better conversationalists: How can we have better conversations?

We spend so much time in our lives having ( or rather trying) to have conversations!! But what makes a truly engaging conversation and how do we stop getting stuck on “the weather”, “the traffic” or god forbid “ what’s up these days?”

For the big digital ideas, the answers are analog.

There is no such thing as a digital idea. Any idea has to address real problems that exist in society. That’s why some BIG ideas that work elsewhere fail in India. Can we find ideas that work only in India? Because the problem is an Indian one?

Can Marketers save the planet?

Our planet is dying, and a big contributor is reckless consumption. The linear process of our use & throw economy, is beginning to raise its ugly head all around us. From air pollution, to garbage dumps, to contaminated food, and depleting water. In such a world, how should marketers play their role ethically, and responsibly? Can we reinvent our roles, choose categories & jobs responsibly, and be a part of the effort to save our beautiful planet?
