Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this for?
Strategists from all backgrounds. We believe the strategy scene needs to learn more through conversations with other disciplines. And we believe in looking at the messy reality of the job, not just perfect theories. So expect a range of fields and practical approaches. And speakers from the client-side too! Madness, we know. So if you consider yourself a strategic thinker of any kind, or aspire to enter the industry… Group Think Fest is for you. Simple as that.
