Agenda Terms

Pillar BLOCKS explore a Shift Forum editorial pillar- Capital, Health, Policy, Business Transformation, Experience Business- through a series of fast-paced, individual, but thematically connected, talks given by a company founder or industry leader. Following the group of presentations, speakers will join the moderator of their block on stage for group discussion and audience Q&A.

A High Order Bit (HOB) is a lighting talk that goes deep on a very specific topic relevant to the broader theme of the conference, yet in an unexpected way. These are placed through-out the program to encourage attendees to “shift” gears as we explore Capitalism at a Crossroads.
