Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannWe all have sat through conferences replete with formal statements and endless powerpoint presentations, Appropriately, as it deals with Disruptive Education Models from the Developing World, ours will be a refreshing “Un-conference," inspired by Lewis Carrroll’s “Through the Looking Glass.” You remember Alice, congratulating Humpty Dumpty for his splendid cravat. "The White King and Queen gave it to me," he said, "for an unbirthday present."

GBSN’s conference includes an Un-Keynote, and even a Mad Hatter Networking Tea (Party) Break. We are proud to boast an innovative un-conference and a 'not so typical’ agenda, designed to be proactive, relevant and rewarding for all conference participants. The un-conference format creates space that encourages peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity.
