🔥 SPARK NEW CONNECTIONS

Create an introvert-friendly space for deep conversations around my LED Campfires for your next event.

Often event organizers are so focused on getting top speakers that sell tickets and get “bums in seats”, that they forget to invest in the most important thing: The connections that could be created for the attendees.

In today’s world, you have to stand out and create memorable experiences if you want your attendees to come back and that won’t happen when you invest only in content and forget about connection.

At the Campfire Conversations Lounge, your attendees will get an opportunity to skip the small talk and make new and meaningful connections by using my Ask Deep Questions Conversation Starter cards.

It’s a phone-free and work-talk-free space where strangers become friends by telling stories around a campfire. There is no start time, simply sit down, pick a question card, turn to your neighbour and start connecting.

A special experience!
I am so grateful we had a chance to partner together on creating an awesome delegate experience!

🔥 ABOUT THE CARDS + CREATOR

Jan is the creator of the ASK DEEP QUESTIONS “Connection Cards”, which started as a deck of cards to help his friends connect on a camping trip and are now being used to facilitate over 70,000 meaningful conversations through sharing personal stories on every continent around the globe.

Each deck of ASK DEEP QUESTIONS includes 48 thoughtful questions that go below the surface to create meaningful connections.

Jan’s mission is to help people feel less alone, so by creating experiences, workshops and programs he is fuelling the movement for deeper human connection.

Now he is bringing his facilitation trainings and tools to organizations everywhere, so leaders can create a culture of authenticity, trust and belonging at work and he is building a community of facilitators that reimagine the MAGIC of in-person events online.

Learn More About the Connection Cards

These are the conversations I would love to have with anyone, but sometimes don't feel comfortable to ask.
The cards are a safe starting point to get beyond small talk.

Linda

The cards are social lubricant to deeper connection.
The box itself is a conversation started and with the game format it gives people permission to go deep.

Rob

Not only did I begin to learn how to have more meaningful conversations with people, but I also learned a lot about myself.

Attendees won’t pay big bucks if they could learn the content on YouTube without even leaving home.

🔥 MORE QUESTIONS?

What Requirements do you have for the Event Space?

IDEAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • A large space (ideally away from the main event stage and quiet)
  • Power supply for the LED campfires
  • A darker area so the light of the campfire stands out
  • Volunteers to direct attendees towards the lounge (recommended)

Is there a minimum time commitment to get the Campfire Conversations Lounge set up?

Your event should be a minimum of 3 hours long to leave enough time for attendees to explore the activation and get to know each other.

Do you offer facilitated Networking Sessions or Workshops?

We love facilitating conversations and connections as early as possible at a conference because that is when most people feel awkward and don’t know how to start connecting with each other.

Hire us to facilitate interactive sessions that get everyone’s energy up and connect with the people around them. This could be from as little as 15 minutes at the beginning of your event, as a break-out session in between heavier content or right before a break where attendees can continue to connect.
