PRbeta, Here I Come!
Exciting times ahead! On May 3rd, I will be speaking at PRbeta (one Romania’s most anticipated communications conference) in the lovely city of Timisoara. Inspired by the Collaborative Consumption movement, my friend’s work at OuiShare and my participation in the upcoming documentary project Collaborative Cities (directed by Maxime Leroy), I will be presenting about ‘The Culture of Collaboration’.
In recent years, fueled by the internet and the growing need for a more economical and sustainable way of living, we have been witnessing the rise of collaboration (shared production and consumption). From crowdfunding and coworking spaces, to carpooling and p2p accommodation (or p2p anything for that matter), an economy built around collaboration has been flourishing, spanning business models, working styles and lifestyles. My presentation aims to provide an overview of this social revolution and how it affects (and will continue to shape) our lives. I will not say much for now, but I will be writing a blog post after the event, summarizing the main points of my talk.
To the lovely folks at PRbeta (especially Cristina, Oltea and Bogdan) and all the attendees, see you in Timisoara!
