In addition to its annual Tomorrow's Transactions Forum, Consult Hyperion also organises a series of Unconferences about digital money and digital identity in locations around the world, including London, New York, San Francisco and Toronto. An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. The term "unconference" describes a gathering that tries to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as high fees, sponsored presentations, and top down organisation.
A typical unconference discussion
Typically, a Consult Hyperion unconference will feature a thought provoking keynote presentation from an author or consultant before participants split into groups to discuss topical issues and questions that they have proposed. Groups then feed back to all delegates and participants then swap to another group so everyone has the opportunity to discuss at least three topics in depth during the day.
