Budapest to host Stretch – Leadership Conference


On December 4-5, Budapest will host a group of people who have a few stories to share about leadership and the challenges of working in a team. The main theme of the second Stretch conference is how to be and have ‘teamdividuals’ on your team.

David Allen, the father of ‘getting things done’, will talk about how to deliver all of your tasks on time without stress, David Marquet, a former US Navy captain, will share the management approach he used when he was ordered to captain a nuclear submarine without having properly trained for the ship. Ty Amell, the director of engineering for PayPal, will talk about the shift from his own startup to financial giant. And that’s not all! The high level speaker of Stretch conference will help you to learn how to be a better performer, and through this a great team player.

Leadership is not necessarily a skill that you were born with. Stretch conference aims to establish a ground where the participants are able to learn this art from international experts. Nothing proves this more than the fact that TechCrunch recommends this year's edition.  Come join us in Budapest, stretch yourself, and learn how to be a ‘teamdividual.’ This event is brought to you by Prezi, Ustream, and Ericsson.

The conference is addressing the following questions:

► How can you bring order to chaos without stress? What does a world famous coach have to say about work-life balance?

► How do you create a workplace where everyone is a team member and still do its best to succeed? What does a US NAVY captain have to say about business?

► How can you keep the spirit of a startup even while being a financial giant? What does a PayPal executive have to do with junk food?
