Keynote Speaker

John Stepper, pioneer of "Working out Loud"

John helps organizations to create more collaborative cultures - and help individuals access a better career and life - by spreading the practice of Working Out Loud.

Working Out Loud is a way to build relationships that can help you in some way, like achieving a goal, developing a skill, or exploring a new topic. Instead of networking to get something, you invest in relationships by making contributions over time, including your work and experiences that you make visible. Your contributions over time are what build trust and deepen a sense of relatedness, and that's what increases the chances for cooperation and collaboration.

John's book, Working Out Loud, describes the approach and a simple, free 12-week peer support process lets people experience the benefits for themselves. These Working Out Loud Circles are now in over 40 countries, and in a wide range of organizations including Bosch, Daimler, BMW, ZF, and Siemens.

You can find out more about WOL, including videos from organizations spreading it and a TEDx talk at the officially WOL-website from John Stepper.
