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.

Trust & Technology - Have we broken the social compact?

The tech industry is responsible for a widening trust deficit with consumers. "Move fast and break things" was great when software engineers built games and calculators. Now, software powers financial markets, air traffic systems and communication networks - critical infrastructure. Software is the new civil engineering and we'd be horrified if bridge builders ascribed to "move fast and break things". Join me to understand how we've got to this point and what we can do to make amends to build trustworthy and ethical data-driven businesses.
