What is a ThreadTalk?
A ThreadTalk is a great presentation plus a great conversation. TED talks, PechaKucha presentations, and Ignite presentations are all ways to broadcast knowledge to an audience. ThreadTalks deliver your presentation and then engage the audience in a conversation. It’s when the sage on the stage steps down, pulls up a chair, and sits eye to eye with the people in the room.
We believe this follow up conversation is where real change takes place, where progress is made, and where our ideas are honed into something more useful.
