“Planning-ness is an “un-conference” for creative thinkers who want to get their hands dirty. Unlike other conferences, speakers don’t just talk at you, they teach you how to do things. That’s why each of our sessions has the words “how to” in the title, as well as a workshop component where you get to put what you have just heard into action.” http://planningness.com/
The mission of Planning-ness is to provide education and inspiration for the “creative thinker” community. The conference had an impressive line up of speakers ranging from neurologists to marketing experts. Each shared their expertise in their respective fields and introduced thought provoking concepts and led interactive workshops.
