Friday, July 26
Join three to five Sandboxers for an hour-long video discussion about a topic that fascinates you. We’ll match everyone up and share customized questions for each topic to help guide the conversation. Our only ask: Show up and dig deep. Don’t worry about the rest.
What’s your definition of family and how has it evolved over time? What values do you cherish, question, or resent from growing up with your parents? Do families play a positive role in society or are they inherently dysfunctional? How would you design your own family?
When: 7:00 PT / 10:00 ET / 15:00 BST / 10:00 HKT
Indulging your inner narcissist for impact
A discussion about why we should honor our ego and most selfish ambitions to make a positive impact on society. Framed in another way, isn’t pursuing our passion the key to individual happiness and social change? How much should we honor individualism versus collectivism? What can we accomplish by focusing on ourselves instead of others?
When: 9:00 PT / 13:00 ET / 17:00 BST / 12:00 HKT
Who are “You”
What is the “Self” and why has it become popular to diminish or destroy it? What does your sense of self prevent you from achieving? Why should you elevate your ego instead? What have you done to change who you are over the years and how do you know who you are is really you?
When: 11:00 PT / 14:00 ET / 19:00 BST / 02:00 HKT (the following day)
PITCH a talk
We know you’re ridiculously talented and all-around amazing, which is why we want to hear from you. Submit an idea for a hour-long AMA-style talk about what keeps you up at night, a project you’ve been working on, or a valuable lesson you’ve learned over the years. There isn’t a limit for how many people can participate in this video meeting so the more, the merrier.
We’ll pick the top two ideas to be our Virtual Summit unconference sessions on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27. If you’re pitching a talk, make sure you’re available on one of those dates. It won’t be as fun otherwise.
