When does the conference take place?

We haven’t released the dates for the next conference. Be the first to know when we do by signing up for the Tell Me More email drip.

How much participation is required?

This conference is 80% participation, 20% speakers. You will be a part of group discussions among large groups (100+) and small groups (4-5). Plan to be open and share your thoughts about real skills. We will ask for volunteers to speak up throughout the conference.

What types of discussions will I be a part of?

Within the first 20 minutes, you can expect to participate in important conversations about leadership, culture, and fear. There’s no right answer here at Akimbo. We will invite you to bring in your own experiences and share your insights. Being honest and trusting each other is highly recommended to fully engage in the content.

What’s the schedule like?

We will start the conference with a welcome kick-off with Akimbo HQ, then dive into group discussions/exercises led by Akimbo coaches, small breakout discussions with 4-5 other attendees, a keynote from best-selling author and founder of Akimbo, Seth Godin, and, to end the conference, a finale with next steps. It will move quickly throughout the two hours with lots of opportunity to participate.

Can I join the conference from my phone?

In order to participate in the conference, you will need to be on a computer and have Zoom downloaded on your computer. We will be using features during the conference that will require being on a computer.

You will receive a step-by-step guide for how to set up and use Zoom at the end of the registration process after submitting your payment.

How is this different than an Akimbo workshop?

The Real Skills Virtual Conference will introduce you to the Akimbo community. It will help you see a new path forward.

Akimbo workshops are interactive online workshops that happen over weeks or months. They're designed around your work and your goals. These workshops are for you to dig deeper into developing real skills and to take action.

More than 23,000 people have engaged in the altMBA, the Marketing Seminar and our other workshops.

The altMBA, our flagship project, is a 30-day intensive with synchronized video meetings and group work on projects, all led by a team of alumni coaches.

The other workshops are asynchronous. You do them at your own pace, finding others as you go.

We believe that each of us has more power than ever before to see the world as it is, to contribute and to make things better.

How much does the conference cost?

The cost to attend is $78 per person. Space is limited, and waiting probably isn't a good idea.

Can groups join the conference together?

We encourage you to invite your boss, colleagues, and direct reports to join this virtual conference. Great teams know how to talk to one another about real skills. However, you must all register individually and tune in from different computers.

During the conference, everyone will be split into small group discussions with other attendees, which means every person attending the conference should be on their own computer so that the group discussions are truly 4-5 people.

The magic will come from these virtual face-to-face connections between you and the other participants. This is how the majority of the conference is run.

Heads up... it is unlikely you will end up in the same conference discussion group with those you have invited to register and meet you there virtually. It’s much more likely that you will end up meeting new people and having unique experiences.

Discussion groups and coaches are all randomly assigned, so we cannot take requests for groups to be together; however, the content shared will be the same among all groups.

Will I get to connect with other attendees afterwards?

Absolutely. This conference is all about connection. After registration, you’ll be invited to join our group on LinkedIn to meet other attendees and share AHA moments from the conference.

I can’t stay for the full two hours. Can I still join?

You should plan to be present and have your video camera on during the duration of the entire conference. 80% of this conference is participation.

We will be locking the doors promptly at 3:00pm ET when the conference begins. Late comers will be unable to join. We only have two hours together and are excited to dive in quickly.

This conference is broken into chapters that fit into a story arc and build on each other. The end of the conference will help attendees connect all the dots.

If you are unable to stay until the end, we highly recommend you register next time we run this conference.

Can I get a refund?

Attendees can request a refund before Monday, April 20th by contacting hello@realskillsconference.com.

I attended a previous session of this conference. Is it the same content?

This is a recurring conference, which means the content is very similar each time we run it. If you enjoyed your experience the first time and would like to engage again, we would love to have you.

When is the next Real Skills Virtual Conference after the April 24th, 2020 session?

We hope to run it again in a few months. Stay tuned by signing up for our email list.

How do I contact you to ask a question about the program?
