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 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.

What's your number? And how I can help you remember things better

Quiz time! Ready? How many emails do you get per day? How many emails do you send per day? How many inbox / messenger apps do you use? How many times do you check Instagram or online news? How many friends do you have on WhatsApp? How many children do you have (if any), pets also count OK... add these up, and email me your number (Ella.kieran@wpp.com) I'll collect all responses. When we get to ojai, you can learn how your number compares to everyone else, and what the optimal number is. And more importantly - why you need to know your number in order to remember the right things, and not become well-informed, but lost.
