We are social creatures. Humans crave connection, and the more safe and meaningful that connection is, the better our mental hygiene and the more we can and do achieve.
Traditional business conferences can be intimidating and miss the mark on authentic and impactful connection so we are here to do things a bit differently.
Genuinely encouraging and championing excellence and never kicking anyone when they are down or struggling is an integral part of the EC culture.
Our growing mentor collective hosts and supports some of Aotearoa and the world's most impressive innovators, thinkers, doers, and champions. What sets them (and us) apart from any other networking and connection collectives and ventures?
Kindness. Vulnerability. Values driven strategies. Optimism. Inclusivity. Curiosity. Encouragement.
This is a safe and impactful forum for like-minded innovators and thought leaders to connect and challenge the status quo together.
From small dinner parties and networking events to huge international conferences, EC are happening every day.
Electrifying conversations are given fertile soil to grow in when participants feel safe and seen.
Events hosted by EC founders and team members give people huge opportunities to connect with meaningful and impactful actors, working toward regeneration of soil, self and social justice.
Guests who identify as introverts still make huge efforts to show up at events as they feel comfortable even if they don't know most, or even any of the other guests.
Particularly socially anxious friends often said that they will come to an event hosted by Deemon because they know they will always meet someone nice and definitely lots of really interesting people as well.
The challenge now is growing together and expanding our network and all the amazing things we can dream of and achieve together.
Learning and connection happen every single day and in so many ways.
EC embraces curiosity and is dedicated to finding and activating inclusive and impactful opportunities to share and exchange knowledge and continue your life long journey of learning and growth.
Our mentor collective is recruited and vetted not only by traditional measures (awards, degrees, resources, possessions, CV strength, etc.) but also by strength of character and integrity. Our culture encourages a trajectory of steady state economic ideals rather for growth for the sake of financial profit. Profit acquired and activated to benefit people and the planet is not only more sustainable, but more rewarding.
From networking events to mentoring and consulting, EC wants to spark creativity and curiosity that turns into innovation, collaboration and helps us all to clean up our carbon, waste and general negative impact footprints.
Knowledge is power, and we want people to be empowered to build a brighter future for us all.
Electrifying Conversations was launched as a semi-traditional business conference and road trip November 1st 2019.
Then, the focus was connecting people across three integral Kiwi industries:
Transport and Energy
This was before Covid, and the sheer enormity and energy that was required to put it all together did send the founder on a long and regenerating sabbatical. This time shone a light on the value of meaningful networking and connection.
EC encourages activation and impact through access to a meaningful mentor collective of people who believe in conversations for good.
This optimistic collective believe that community, collaboration, curiosity and kindness can change the trajectory we are on from catastrophic to genuinely hopeful.
Semi-regular training and networking events will take place across Aotearoa and the globe, encouraging meaningful connection in the hopes that these conversations will spur actions and organisation to help heal people and the planet.
