Organizations at the edge – What is needed for a safe transition to the next paradigm of working and organizing?

We have reached a breaking point today.

Most organizations struggle to keep up with the increased pace of change and the rapidly evolving customer and employee needs. This is not a problem of some executives to figure out: we are all influenced by organizations on many levels. And at the same time we are all influencers who have the opportunity to affect change.

TealCamp is a participant-driven event for learning about and exploring and experiencing new ways of working, organizing and collaborating.

Un-Conference Program

TealCamp is not your typical conference where participants passively consume. This is a Participant-driven un-conference. We are using elements from from formats such as barcamp, open space and others to create a space where every participant is also a co-creater.

We have secured an amazing location right next to river Aare and the pittoresque old-town of Thun.



The event will be financed on a “Pay-What-Feels-Right” basis, combined with a non-refundable registration fee.

The current recommended contribution is: CHF 370 per participant. This number is merely a rough reference and states how much you would have to contribute if you wanted to cover all costs incurred per participant. Thus, anyone who pays more is willing to subsidise another participant who pays less.

It will be updated here on the webpage regularly. The more registrations we have and the more sponsors we find, the lower the recommended contribution will be.

The ticket price includes contributing to and active participation in the sessions on day 1 and 2, coffee-breaks, lunch buffet, all-day coffee/tea and water for both days. Other drinks and dinner on day 1 are not included.

Upon registration, a registration fee of CHF 90 applies which is non-refundable in case you will need to cancel at a later stage. You can, however, transfer your registration to another person if you cannot make it after all.

Net of the registration fee, the remaining recommended contribution is thus currently CHF 280 per participant.

To ensure a great event in Halle 6, the number of participants is capped at 110.
