There are so many amazing ways to learn and sharpen your brain nowadays: reading blogs, listening to podcasts, watching youtube videos, and attending webinars, just to name a few. Why bother with the time and expense of an in-person conference?

If that’s your attitude, then you may be missing out on one of the best opportunities to take your game to the next level. 

Conferences actually provide unique learning and career building opportunities that you just can’t find anywhere else. 

Below you’ll find 8 main reasons why you should attend Paris Talks and also consider sending your employees and friends too. 

1. Meet with experts and influencers 

While Paris Talks may not the conference that offers you the opportunity to meet your idols or brands, chances are, it will greatly increase the chances to share the same space with experts and influencers. 

At times it’s all about taking a selfie with a community influencer or sharing an idea with someone you’ve met and like, or making a connection that can lead to finding your next mentor or project partner.

Some meetings or connections will never ever happen online

2. Networking Opportunities

We’re all the time connected to our peers via Social Media. Some of them are local and others are far away. That said, we don’t see any substitution for meeting someone in real life. It’s a powerful experience.

Paris Talks is a conference where you’ll have plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones. Over coffee, meditation, and cocktails, you’ll make a connection with amazing and inspirational people. 

3. Learning From a different perspective

Depending on where you stand in your living room, the view of your street and the things happening on it can look pretty different. Just like our perception of the physical world, perspective really matters in the subjective learning experience of the social world.

The same events might have different meanings when seen from different perspectives. The learning perspective you adopt will surely influence what you’ve always thought or considered obvious.

By attending Paris Talks, you’ll be challenged to look at the future of our world with an unconventional eye. You’ll also learn different ways to become a key player in making things better for the future generations.

4. Break Out of Your Comfort Zone

Going hand-in-hand with the previous reason, Paris Talks will actually challenge you to break out of your comfort zone.

While it’s pretty easy to listen to a podcast or watch a YouTube video from the privacy of your own home or office, coming to Paris Talks will be a whole new experience. You may not be a born networker and feel like conferences aren’t for you but breaking out of your comfort zone is probably the action you’ll need to take to break out of old ways of thinking, learning and connecting that have got you in a rut in your learning process.

So, if you’re kind of terrified of the idea of signing up to Paris Talks, you may consider getting yourself a wingman (or wing woman) so that you don’t feel out of place. 

5. New Tips & Tactics

The issue with the internet is that it really makes us believe that everything is at our fingertips. And that’s probably right. But it’s usually a huge amount of data that’s too difficult to crack and, at times, it keeps us from the best content. 

At Paris Talks, we’re convening a community in intimate, peer-level gatherings in Paris and decision-makers, artists, entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, educators, futurists, environmentalists, economists, visionaries... will share their most innovative, provocative and disruptive questions but also their most promising new ideas and approaches to some of the world’s toughest current and future challenges. 

These are ideas you must have heard of somewhere online,  but Paris Talks will help you cut through the clutter to deliver the best content for you possible.

6. The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals

Nothing beats the feeling one can have to be in a room with like-minded people.

People at Paris Talks are from different walks of life (more than 40 nationalities are expected) but share one main thing: Thirst for knowledge that comes with a passion for inspiring others to learn and transmit the knowledge. 

When you sit in a theatre, you’ll discover that you’re not alone in wanting to know how our future technologies, finance, etc. will look like and bring something back home or to your organization or community. 

We tend to think that that’s an energy missing from most online learning experiences, regardless of how many people are chatting on a Twitter, Instagram or Google+ hashtag.

7. Invest In Yourself

This one is self-evident. We’ve probably covered it. But leaving your home, office or community and “sharpening the saw” is actually what we call investing in yourself. 

This makes you admit that you deserve it. 

It’s admitting that you still have the stuff to learn and it means you agree with yourself that you can get better.

Attending Paris Talks is investing in yourself, your career, your community, or your business. When you get your Paris Talk ticket and when you’ll walk up to the registration desk, it’s a statement you’re making. You’re basically saying that you’re investing in your own growth.

8. Takeaways

We know! 

Conferences tend to be expensive. From that ticket to your commute, from the meals to the bar tab. And that doesn’t even include the time away from the office where you could be doing some productive stuff. 

That said, like any other conference out there, Paris Talks will provide a unique convergence of networking, learning, entertainment, and fun into one package. This will be a high dose of knowledge for your growth. We love saying it's an intellectual adventure.
