If you believe in the power of connection, and you're willing to be open and participate, it's 100% worth it.
If you want to have a real conversation about the ways in which you hold yourself back you need to attend this conference. Sharing stories is the most powerful way to learn and grow.
I immediately realized as people answered questions that I am not alone with the doubts and fears - hopes and dreams that live in me about work and life... offering and learning new things about real skills to other people. My questions are alive in others.
The 2 hours you will take for yourself will give you time to pause, explore what you need and meet unforgettable people who are very aligned with every feeling each of us have towards how we show up in the world. It's a can't miss. It will take courage to be there. It will not be easy, and it will be worth it because it's about you and how you are changing the world. You matter. Your work matters.
Best money ever spent, also the best 2 hours in a long time.
Don't expect a webinar or a lecture. Be ready to talk and discuss.
Amazing how a set of strangers from all over the world can form connections, share deeply, and generously support each other in such a small amount of time.
It created a space with the right setting and tools to generate intimate conversations with people all around the world.
The conference was expertly managed and gave me a real boost in my own self-confidence. It's not always easy to see how these events make a difference, but every connection I made has spoken of the belief that they now have to go forward. Thank you, Akimbo, for a seminal moment in my career.
During a time when we can't meet in person due to the crisis... this was the first time I felt the enjoyment of making new connections over a screen. The safe and vulnerable space that was cultivated made the human connection possible again! It also allowed me to focus on digging deeper (past the surface conversations often had over video calls), and get to that 'aha' moment in a short amount of time.
Before I attend The Real Skills Conference, I thought generosity was a personality trait. Now, I realize it's a skill. Empathy and generosity are learnable. And, two hours are enough to learn a lot.
Fast, fun, and effective. I came with questions and left with clarity on how to proceed, not to mention connections with lots of other great like-minded people.
Probably the fastest 120 minutes that I've experienced of true engagement and collaboration, by being present without actually being there. I really enjoyed the meeting format with revolving breakout rooms, fueled by provoking and interesting conversations; zero judgement and true encouragement from others and from within.
