Opening Keynote: Brave New Workshop
For decades, the Twin Cities has enjoyed the audacious, hilarious, and thought-provoking original comedy, improv and satire of the Brave New Workshop. The Brave New Workshop will kick off CONVERGENCE Summit 2019 with laughter, learning, thinking and playing to motivate, energize and spur us to action. This session will be based on the book “The Innovative Mindset: 5 Behaviors for Accelerating Breakthroughs” by BNW’s John Sweeney and Elena Imaretska.
$5,000 sponsorship of the opening session
$3,500 sponsorship of the Closing Networking Reception in the Swain room from 4 to 6 p.m.
Attendees of previous Summits have noted that networking is one of the most significant benefits of attending the event. The Closing Networking Reception will be positioned as an extension of the CONVERGENCE Summit and a way for attendees to connect and share their learnings from the day.
The Swain Room is adjacent to the registration area in the McNamara. It will be used as one of the break-out rooms earlier in the day. With the tabletop / bar configuration, the room can comfortably accommodate 110 people.
Sponsor to also provide a significant prize (i.e., iPad, earphones) to use as a drawing at the Networking Reception
So how do successful companies use cause-marketing, advocacy and corporate social responsibility to connect with their customers and the community? Our lunch keynote speaker and a panel following lunch will address this trend. Lunch will take place with all attendees in the Johnson Great room.
