House19 - Lisbon


SCROLL DOWN

House19 - Lisbon


House19 

November 2-6, 2019

Lisbon

 

This world doesn’t need another purpose project. It doesn’t need more cozy gatherings. It needs us to drive change at scale, even if it’s moment by moment. An upset of the norm. A battle for beautiful business.

There will be keynote talks, panels, and workshops—but it will not be a conference. There will be concerts, movies, and dance—but it will not be entertainment. There will be a boat ride, dinners-around-town, and late-night-living rooms—but it will not be comfortable.

Welcome to House19.

A battle for what we believe is worth fighting for.

Fixing capitalism. Creating a humanist operating system for companies. Celebrating humans as anti-machines in an age of machines. Actually, becoming climate-positive human beings. Enjoying moments of connection, affection, and wonder that make “our shared humanity” not just a cliché line but something that makes us cry.

We don’t just want you to commit to this battle. We want you to fall in love with it. And you will not be alone. The Residents at the House of Beautiful Business 2019 have your back, including:

Locations

The battle for beautiful business will take place in two arenas: on Saturday (Nov 2) and Sunday (Nov 3), we will return to the Portuguese Academy of Sciences for our kick-off. From Monday to Wednesday, we will then move into a new mission control of beautiful business (soon to be revealed) in the heart of downtown Lisbon.

 
 

Partners

Our allies at BCG Henderson Institute, T-Systems, Galp, Indeed Innovation, and Magnum Photos help us make it happen, and we’re grateful for their outstanding support.

The House of Beautiful Business opened its doors during and before the Web Summit in Lisbon to explore “the very human future of business” in a playful and intimate setting. Over 200 residents — founders, business leaders, investors, social entrepreneurs, writers, philosophers, scientists, designers, technologists, and artists — convened in two locations for the first week-long House.

The first House of Beautiful Business took place during Mobile World Congress (MWC) in a guild house in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. In two days rich with talks, discussions, workshops, breakfast sessions, and dinner salons we explored how to lead with purpose and passion; build human companies and workplaces; create beautiful products, services, and experiences; and design for intimacy and meaning.

Some of the program highlights included “The Great Debate: Technology and Humanity” curated together with Futurist Gerd Leonhard; “Purpose Prototyping” sessions; and panel discussions on “Beautiful Cities,” “Pleasure and Pain in the Age of AI and VR,” and “Disengaged Tech.” Moreover, we examined lessons from local heroes FC Barcelona and the “Beautiful Game,” and offered  a Silent Dinner.

Beautiful Business combines a humanist purpose with a human-centric organizational culture and strong individual human spirit. It embodies three core mantras: do good, feel good, and feel more.

Grow to Last

Chamber of Beautiful Business, Marrakesh

Sunday, March 3, 2019

Anayela

Co-hosted by Andrea Bury.

Along TEDx Marrakesh, we will bring the House to African soil for the first time.

In an age when exponential growth has become the premise of business-as-usual, a counter-narrative has started to emerge on more sustainable economic development. While all eyes are fixed on the next big bang from Silicon Valley and its rising rivals in China, we want to shed light on the region of Middle East and North Africa.

How might the future of the MENA region’s labor markets and economy look like? What are its foundations, and how do we build with the intention of ‘growing to last’?

Together with speakers from business, politics, and the arts, we’ll be exploring existing initiatives and untapped opportunities to help strengthen fairness, inclusivity, and social cohesion.

The Bridge to Our Exponential Humanity

Chamber of Beautiful Business, Istanbul

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Co-hosted by Eda Çarmikli and Markus William Lehto.

Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come. – Victor Hugo

What if business was more beautiful, more human, and even a source of good in the world?

Istanbul is a unique bridge between the East and the West, constantly swirling between the timeless and the untested, ready or not. The energies of Yin and Yang, and the living spirit of empires and religions are vibrantly displayed in countless layers of the duality we live out as a daily reality.

It is the city to explore and celebrate our deeper and more complete selves – to witness and transcend the conditioned mindset and patterns that shape our present reality and find clues leading to our full, often untapped, potential.

Together with a tribe of global game changers, we will be exploring the bridge to our exponential humanity, to eventually co-create a better future for all. If this sounds like you, come join us.

Pace and Purpose

Chamber of Beautiful Business, London

Sunday, May 19, 2019

The Kindred

Co-hosted by Sofia Natal and Sophie Devonshire.

How we meet is important. In business, as in life.   

We live in a superfast world where (safe) places for connection and meaning -  superslow by nature - are hard to access. 
      
What does pace and purpose mean in today's times and how do we incorporate the role of personal and organizational purpose in business and in our lives?

This is about a different way of approaching how we work and how we shape our working lives. Discover thought provocation and inspiration from those who are exploring a different approach to business and engage with us in the co-creation of a charter about what purposeful pace-setting means. 

Together with speakers from business, philosophy, and technology, we're inviting you to to pause think, discover, explore and connect together – in a beautiful place. Starting with a beautiful brunch to set the pace. Success is about the meaningful conversations and experiences you’ll have here. Bring your whole self. Leave judgement at home. And seize the day.

Co-hosted by Nika Wiedinger, Simon Berkler, and Sven Krüger.

Together, we will be exploring the concept and meaning of the ‘soul’ from a business, philosophical, and artistic point of view.

  • If it exists, how could this ‘state of the soul’ be described?

  • Where does the soul reveal itself to being visible or tangible?

  • How might we care enough, to help the soul being well-nourished?

Wabi Sabi – Celebrating the Imperfect, Incomplete & Impermanent Nature of Business

Chamber of Beautiful Business

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Bakehouse Studios

Co-hosted by Mykel Dixon.

Business is obsessed with perfection.

Our addiction to symmetry and efficiency can be seen in our minute by minute conference agendas,

the straight-line designs of our white-walled boardrooms, and the elaborate job titles & jargon we use to make ourselves appear as though we know what we’re doing.

This fixation on flawlessness drives our behaviour in ways we don’t like to admit. Fudging numbers & photoshopping flaws, embellishing CVs and breaking laws. From FOMO to machismo to infinite growth.

It’s exhausting, ineffective, inhumane.

And the distance between the highlight reel we see online and the reality of our working lives is destroying our experience of work, of life, and of ourselves.

We look forward for answers when perhaps we should look back for better questions. One place might be the Japanese philosophy – Wabi Sabi.

In Wabi Sabi, everything is made more beautiful by baring the marks and scars of age and individuality. Repairs and reconstructions are to be appreciated rather than made invisible. Peace can be found by embracing the transitory, incomplete and impermanent nature of existence. Perhaps if we embraced a little Wabi Sabi in our work, we might find greater satisfaction in simple moments. More enjoyment in everyday interactions. More reverence for the often unheroic essence of our professional lives.

Join a thoughtful cast of executives, entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, artists and philosophers as we seek to find, embrace & celebrate the Wabi Sabi of our work.

Together we’ll turn the mundane into the mysterious, find fortune in fleeting experience, and savour the inevitable mess of making beautiful business.

Proudly supported by Death Gin & The Catalyst Network.

All proceeds going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Chamber of Beautiful Business, New York City

thursday, May 16, 2019

38 Parlor

Co-hosted by Daniel Gomez-Seidel and Pablo Criado-Peréz.

What have been the most important decisions you have made so far in your life? What was it that in the end nudged you towards one direction or the other? And how will you find a compromise between trusting your guts and trusting the other, in an age of biometric scanning, smart machines, and predictive analytics? Are we witnessing an evolution of decision-making?

With technological and scientific progress, we’re not only exposed to increasing data-driven knowledge, but also gain more insight into the unexplored mysteries of human decision-making. Today, tensions arise between the intuitive, and the analytical, the individual and the collective, the manipulative and the altruistic. How do these tensions affect business, culture and everyday life?

What essential aspects of our own humanity might be crucial factors to count in, when making the right choice – and how many will be real free will?

Together with speakers from science, business, politics, technology, and the arts, we will be exploring the evolving nature of decision-making and start deconstructing, by experiencing.

The Future of (African) Capitalism

Chamber of Beautiful Business, Cape Town

Friday, April 26, 2019

Norval Foundation

Co-hosted by Ulrich Meyer-Höllings.
In collaboration with University of Stellenbosch Business School and the Institute of Futures Research.

I feel the other, I dance the other, therefore I am” – Leopold Senghor
Between freedom and slavery, inequality and activism, European history and African heritage, we find ourselves in a space of contrast and contradictions. In the spirit of the local ethos of ‘Ubuntu’ (I am, because you are), which enforces an inclusive growth mindset following the principle of ‘a herd moves at the speed of the slowest animal’, any of the current forms of capitalism couldn’t be more ‘unafrican’.

For many years, South Africa has been driving forward its socio-economic development by capitalist thinking while staying true to its roots of a more inclusive approach. Seizing the global appetite for alternative economies, we’ll be exploring different notions and start conversations on the possible future(s) of capitalism.

We live in a world that is not only surrounded, but more and more immersed by technology. From the way we communicate and interact, to the places we shop at, to the world we live, work, and play in. Opening the doors of infinite possibilities, we wonder how to decode the software of tech-as-usual and extract, what makes our lives more joyful.

How might we discover, enable, and sustain joy-bringing technologies?

Chan Centre for Performing Arts 

Co-hosted by Meralon Shandler and Randal Hrytzak.

In times where every answer is just one click away, and digital platforms have altered the meaning of truth and fake, where will we reconnect back to myths and mystery that have been an integral part of human history?

  • In our search for predictability and efficiency, have we forgotten the mystery makes our search possible?

  • What's the cost of certainty in business?

  • If technology and AI provide all the answers, where will the questions come from?

Together, we will be exploring the wonder of not knowing, in the intersection of technological transparency, and what makes us inherently human.

The Art of Belonging

Chamber of Beautiful Business, Belgrade

27 September, 2019

Co-hosted by Sonja Kresojevic.

“Gazing at the rain, I consider what it means to belong, to become part of something. To have someone cry for me.” –Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

Set in a place that has survived a war, disruption, political turmoil and by that has learned to adapt, we look at the personal journeys of those who left, those who stayed, and those who came back.

With voices of local and global communities, we'll be exploring the loss of (national) identity and discovering a new way of belonging in a culture of digital nomadism and the gig economy.

  • What does it mean to belong?

  • What happens to our identity when our place of belonging stops to exist?

  • In between local tribes and global movements, how do we come together and fulfill the need to belong?
