‘Walk the Plank’ Unconference

This year, Gangplank will be hosting our first event focused exclusively on immersing others in the Gangplank philosophy on Friday, June 22nd, 2012. The ‘Walk the Plank’ Unconference is open to individuals interested in learning more about the Gangplank model, as well as discussing the impact of collaboration on various industries. The event will take place in Downtown Chandler, Arizona.

‘Walk the Plank’ is ideal for:

  • Economic Development professionals
  • Nonprofit leaders
  • Small business and entrepreneurial support groups
  • Educators
  • Gangplankers!

For those unfamilar with the unconference format, the event is held a large open space instead of individual break-out rooms. The agend is participant-driven and discussions are participant-lead, with time left at the end of the event for sharing of insights and solutions.

  1. What is the status of the Avondale Gangplank collaborative? I live in the western valley and we are interested in working in our area doing collaborative work around community and capital building.

  2. Will this by any chance be posted online for later viewing? I am no longer in the Arizona area, and have become very interested in starting up a collaborative workspace in the Gangplank tradition here in Colorado. This event looks like a great place to get started.

    • Since it is a unconference with dozens of discussions happening at the same time, we won’t be filming Friday’s event. However, we’re happy to help however we can in helping you along in your plans. Feel free to email info(at)gangplankhq.com with any questions.
