The Great Crowd Sourcing Experimental workshop

4 authorities on crowdsourcing from 4 continents live mentoring a room of people building crowdsourcing business concepts. Next Tuesday at 11am. At the Market Research Society conference in London.  I have been meaning to blog about this workshop I am running but need to because I am not allowed to promote the workshop inside the conference – and it is taking place on the first morning of the conference.

If you plan to be at the conference on Tuesday then please plan to come along and be part of it!

The goal of the workshop is within 1 hour to compete to come up with crowdsourcing ideas for new research businesses. We have 4 authorities on crowdsourcing who will be participating – answering questions, giving hints and tips.

Jaroslav Cir Founder of Perfect Crowd in Prague – is our European authority – using crowds as a fundamental building block of his research agency.

Kate Tribe founder of Tribe research is our Australian authority – turning all the stakeholders into crowds around startups and growing companies.

Han Zantingh MD of Brainjuicer in Shanghai is our authority from China – using tools such as Predictive Markets and research robots to unlock the power of crowds in the world's populous market.

Han Kristiansen founder of Creative Creatures is our authority from New York – using creativity profiling to transform how teams originate and shape ideas.

1010474_Research2011Logo Each of them applies crowd sourcing to their business in a very different way. Using 4 live connections they will participate in the session to inspire and provoke the participants to take their crowdsourcing ideas even further.

The workshop takes the form of a game – and there will be a winner for the best crowdsourcing business idea.  This workshop is a world first (we think) and is not a little hair raising when you consider the technical hurdles we will be trying to overcome. It is very different from sitting still for an hour and having speaker after speaker deluge you with ideas. Here you work with others to shape your ideas and get inspired by expert practictioners as you do it.

I am facilitating this session along with Joanna Chrzanowska – who runs Electric Learning (formerly Mike Imms & Partners) a training venture devoted to immersive learning.

Retweet, put the word out – we want a full room on Tuesday morning!
