Fintech Barcamp @ Langkawi

Fintech Barcamp @ Langkawi

 

We speak frequently of disrupting the financial industry but yet, we rarely talk about how outdated and dull our events are. It’s filled with canned corporate speak and rehashed ideas repeated over and over again on stage.

In that spirit, Fintech Barcamp @ Langkawi would like to throw everything you know about events out the window.

About The Event

BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.

Excluding some specially curated sessions, all sessions will be presented by participants who volunteer to lead a session and the sessions with the most votes will be included in the agenda

1. Think of a session topic you’d like to lead that’s related to fintech

2. It could be a presentation,  you could group up with some buddies to form panel discussion , an “Ask Me Anything Session” or event a fireside chat moderated by us.

3.Write the topic and your name this is like a little coversheet for each of your session(s) that contains everything we’ll need to know about your session

4. The participants will vote on which sessions they would like to participate in, the session with most votes will be slotted in

1. No Spectators, Only Participants

Attendees are expected not to be a passive spectator, we believe in the wisdom of the crowd and everyone has something to offer.

Attendees must either lead a session, or actively participate in a discussions during the session.

2.No Long-Winded Slides 

In the spirit keep things open and having a two-way conversation with the audience we strongly discourage the use of slides except if there are visuals and stats that are pertinent to making the discussion more lively

3. No Sales Pitches, Please

When thinking of leading a session, think about whether what you’re sharing is focused on benefiting everyone present or your commercial goal. If it’s the latter we advise for you to rethink

4.No Ties! Only Shorts

Relax, take off your tie and suit, we intend to keep a casual environment that conducive for interaction
