The shift to the crowd economy is already here. As we count the weeks before the Crowdsourcing Week Europe 2015 (#CSWEurope15), we are thrilled to announce our very first #CrowdChat session with one of our speakers, Haydn Shaughnessy on September 15 at 8:00 PM CET. This is a sneak preview of what you will get from the most cutting edge content on the crowd economy. Haydn is scheduled to speak on October 22 program, Sustainable Europe: Participatory Government & Energy Transition.

#Crowdchat is a great way to join in on the conversation, gain visibility and connect with like-minded professionals. If you are a thought leader, practitioner, influencer or merely curious why the crowd is an engine of growth in today’s open, connected and transparent world, tune in for these discussions:

When: September 15, 8:00 PM CET

csweurope2015-haydnshaughnessyHaydn Shaughnessy is the Co-Founder of The Disruption House. At Crowdsourcing Week Europe 2015, he will share his insights on why “the crowd is already the engine of growth.” Described as “one of the most refreshing thinkers of innovation,” Haydn’s passion is to help people understand how disruptive forces will reshape their markets, careers, and companies. He’s the author of the two books, The Elastic Enterprise and SHIFT, described by Forbes as everything you need to know about the digital economy. He has shown how innovation and disruption are structured events, increasingly shaped by the actions of people in open ecosystems. Haydn brought a systematic rigor to how the crowd is changing politics, economics, and society.

Here are some of the questions we will be asking Haydn:

  1. Tell us about the shift in the economy?
  2. Which 3 verticals or industries is seeing the biggest disruption?
  3. How should enterprises respond to these disruptive forces?

And many more…
