Forward Summer Summit is the unmissable online conference built to create an interactive & deep learning journey with great networking for our global attendees.
This 1-day Summit is centered around “The Great Employee Experience (EX) Awakening” and won’t be your average (virtual) conference. We aim to create an experience, build a story and give you tangible tools to work on Employee Experience in your organizations or with your clients the next day.
The user experience is always at the forefront of our minds. You will experience an event like no other.
When is Forward Summer Summit?
Online on 2 June 2022 , 11 AM (CET) – 8 PM (CET)
We will be meeting via our computer screens to allow as many of our global community to attend. But through a mix of old and new technology, we hope to build a strong connection and approximate the feeling of meeting face-to-face as closely as possible.
What can I expect from Forward Summer Summit?
At Management 3.0 we are all about experimenting. So at this summit, we will be storytelling. Attendees will follow a path, along the way we will talk to experts and discuss transformative EX with fellow attendees, solve EX puzzles and explore and try hands-on practices that we can start using tomorrow to improve workers’ journey from candidacy to exit.
We will have ample opportunities to get to know each other, and the day will culminate with a fun social activity.
We envision something at the crossroads between a workshop and a conference interwoven with a strong narrative.
What about these two teaser seminars?
To start us off in thinking about what EX is all about and why it’s important. We aim to host two 45-60 mins virtual seminars in April and May.
More information can be found here.
What about timezones?
Ok, so this is something we struggle with and can never really fix. Unless the earth could be turned flat?
But, to create a global experience, we have opted to meet from 11 AM – 8 PM (CET) – we call this the sweet spot as this avoids middle-of-the-night hours for a big part of our community.
Although, we do appreciate that if you are on the East Coast of the US or in Japan this might still make it difficult.

What does my ticket entitle me to join?
The main conference day! And depending on what type of ticket and when you purchased your tickets – the teaser seminars. Make sure you double-check your purchase.
We will record the talks – but as this is an experimental conference with a lot of engagement, you will get the most out of this conference by blocking the time in your calendar on joining us live.
How do I join?
Once you have bought your ticket, you will receive confirmation of your attendance. We will send you the link and instructions to join where you can log in and create your virtual profile.
What technical items do I need?
Ensure you have strong internet connectivity; a webcam; speakers/microphone. And most importantly – yourself! Come armed with questions & an open mind!
How will you make the virtual conference interactive? How can I network and meet fellow attendees?
We know that networking is a core part of the conference experience. There is plenty of opportunity for small breakout sessions. You will also be able to message and chat with other attendees through the event platform or have 1 to 1 meetings with people who you may wish to do business with. You will be networking with fellow attendees from across the globe!
Are you also planning a live conference?
Yes! Forward Berlin 2022 where we will come together in person. More information soon.
What is the dress code?
Good question! We have some fabulous Forward T-Shirts for you to be part of the community during the event and after and join the Virtual Coffee breaks with your own Forward mug! – Take a look
