Shhhhhhh! Challenge what you think collaboration is.

Join the very first workshop that kicks off the “Inclusion Collaboration” campaign founded by Sal & Katherine to promote, embrace and celebrate neurodiversity in tech.

Collaboration isn’t limited to loud, pushy, fast and extroverted. We aren’t all the same. We lose a lot by limiting ourselves to one way of working together and often unintentionally exclude amazing people with important viewpoints and vital data.

In a community of taking things to the ‘extreme’, Sal and Katherine push the limits by exploring absolutely silent collaboration. How effective can we be? What could we learn? What powerful takeaways could you get? How might it change the way you collaborate tomorrow?

This workshop will be like no other. You will:

• Help the third world in a very meaningful, practical way and non-trivial way
• Learn about how awesome (and easy) it is to embrace neurodiversity
• Experience eastern philosophical ways of generating collaborative quiet wisdom
• Participate in the Inclusion Collaboration campaign - raising awareness of supporting neurodiversity in tech

This workshop is about being different, doing things differently and absolutely loving it. We hope you take that to work and spread it far and wide.
