SOLWorld CEE 2018 Programme

Welcome to the 4th Central Eastern European SOLWorld conference and be inspired by our bite-sized SOL Talks (modelled on the famous TED talks), gain in-depth learning from our longer Workshops bringing a wide range of perspectives, case studies and expertise, or go with the flow and see what emerges from our Open Space and other learning & connecting sessions.

Whatever you are looking for, we are confident you will find it here.

Hosted for the first time in Timisoara, and second in Romania, our aim is to create a shared learning space for business players and Solution Focus practitioners, for enthusiasts and the merely curious, for newcomers and SF oldies, for CEE citizens and community members from around the SOL World.

If by some chance you don’t fit any of these groups and need a good excuse to come, please contact us and we will happily support you in finding one.
