WHY NOT SEND THE TEAM FOR R&D?

Sending a scout to explore the uncharted territory is always a good start but why not send a group of five, ten or more of your staff to maximise the benefits?

Pause Fest is a value and impact-driven event, which means you win.

With your budget for professional development, reward your staff with something meaningful to both them and your business. Pause Fest is a perfect team-building opportunity and your team and your business will reap the rewards in myriad ways over the year.

And if that is not enough to convince you, we’ll include your logo on our website under the Industry Partners with your URL if you purchase five or more Leader Tickets. Now you have exposure and the team is ready. See you at the event!

WHO IS SPEAKING?

A New Odyssey is upon us; a time to reflect and plan the next decade. Pause Fest 2020 is set to invigorate your senses, serve you the future trends, deliver stories from beyond the generation and, most importantly, prepare you with actionable insights.
