    LESS PRESENTATION, MORE CONVERSATION

    We focus on conversations because we all learn more in a give-and-take than we do from a long, one-size-fits-all sales pitch. You’ll learn from your peers and from our sponsors. Our sponsors learn from you as well, which improves the quality of their products and messaging.

      Questions our invited guests often ask us

      General Conference

      Launched in 2019, Common Sense Conferences attract executive thought leaders from around the globe for conversation with peers and industry experts to promote innovation and growth. All Common Sense events share a “Less Presentation, More Conversation” theme because the last thing anyone needs is more heavy-handed sales pitches masquerading as “thought leadership”.

      Common Sense Conferences are produced by BuyerForesight, a 90-person (and growing) marketing services company with offices in the US, India, Singapore, and the Netherlands.

      We produce executive thought leadership events worldwide.

      We emphasize conversation over presentation. We carefully vet every prospective participant to ensure they will both contribute and get value from each event.

      We have offices in Singapore, Duluth, Minnesota, Kolkata, Bangalore and Amsterdam.

      Attend to learn and network with industry experts and executive peers.

      Expect between 60 and 70 participants, and 10-15 sponsors.

      There are no current plans to invite media to this conference.

      Our business model relies on our participants being decision makers on behalf of their company, with control of a budget, buying authority, need for solutions and a timeline for purchase of those solutions within 12 months.

      Qualified participants pay nothing to attend.

      Common Sense Conferences will arrange and pay for air travel and your hotel and meals for each qualified participant.

      You’ll need to complete a qualification form.

      No. However, we request that you make a serious effort to find a colleague in your organization with similar qualifications to participate instead of you or take a meeting with at least 3 of our sponsors.

      Registration begins at 4 pm and the welcome cocktail reception begins at 6 pm. You should plan to arrive in time to join us for cocktails.

      Sessions

      The format includes several session types from a full-group keynote address to small conversational breakout sessions. The majority of our activities are designed to foster small-group conversations among participants and our industry experts.

      A war story is a short account of a real-world business challenge and how a company met that challenge, including mistakes and lessons learned.

      A panel discussion is 3-5 experts discussing a series of questions posed by a moderator. Participants may ask and respond as well.

      Typically each session will be 20-30 people.

      As many as you like.

      Yes, though some sessions may fill up; in this case you’ll need to choose a different session.

      Yes, we strongly encourage your topic suggestions.

      Participants

      If you are a decision maker with control of a budget, buying authority, need for solutions, and a timeline for purchase of those solutions within 12 months, you will qualify. You may also qualify if you are a primary purchase influencer.

      You are expected to attend and participate in sessions, join us for meals and stay through the full program. You are not required to meet with any of our sponsors, though of course we hope you’ll want to.

      We believe our participants have a lot of valuable information to share, so we encourage all participants to actively ask and answer questions during our sessions. We also ask some participants to consider serving on a panel or deliver a War Story.

      You aren’t required to be a “speaker” and lead a session; however, all participants should come prepared to share their expertise or ask good questions of their peers.

      If you are serving on a panel or delivering a War Story, we’ll introduce you to others you’ll be presenting with, and set up prep calls for you. We do not use PowerPoint presentations in our breakout sessions, so a simple outline of what you intend to discuss is enough. Otherwise, all you need to do is read through the agenda and decide which sessions you’d like to participate in.

      Yes, we’d like a detailed description of what you intend to cover.

      Yes.
