A Crash Course On 60 Of The World's Most Progressive Workplaces
On March 5th this year we announced an event to share what we have learned so far from progressive workplaces. It sold out in only three days later! We were blown away by this interest—and even more so by the excitement at the event itself. It was clear we should do more.
Now, 9 months after that launch in Holland, we have repeated the success in Berlin, London (twice), Utrecht, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In 2018, we plan more events all around the world.
Expanding the global movement
The Rebel Events have connected us to hundreds of like-minded people. More importantly, they have boosted the movement to make work more fun. They include frontline employees, directors, CEOs, writers, consultants, journalists and many, many more. And they come from multinationals, small and medium sized organizations, startups, scale-ups, government and healthcare. The sheer diversity shows how much there is to be done.
In 2018, the Tour will continue. Next up? Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Paris.
Stockholm (24 November 2017)
In a few days, we’ll be in Stockholm. In a collaboration with Bonnier News, we’ve been able to bring together 39 fellow Rebels already. There are 6 more tickets available. We expect a sell-out. Tickets can be bought here.
Amsterdam (6 December 2017)
Two weeks later, the Tour goes to Amsterdam. Our local collaborator is Viisi Labs. 40 tickets have been sold, and 5 more are available. To join us, purchase yours here.
Paris (26 January 2018)
The first Event in the New Year will be in Paris. Our local partner is Ministère du Bonheur. Get tickets here.
Adding new locations
More will follow. We are discussing opportunities in Poland and Australia (again). All (including these two) are co-organized with locals.
Our partners to date have included Roffey Park Business School, Incentro, Campfire Co-op, Sportsbet, Viisi Labs, Happy Ltd, and Bonnier News. These locals support us with locations, communication, and the network to make the events a success. We are extremely grateful to all of them. They strengthen the movement to make work more fun.
If you would like to co-organize an event in your city, please drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to collaborating with you. We need local support for locations, communications, and networking.
For now, we invite you to join the fast-growing Corporate Rebels Movement by attending one of our already-scheduled events around the world.

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing." This famous quote by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard really hits the nail on its head. And as we spend most of our days at work, the work we do says a lot about the way we lead our lives.
Micromanagement is about as persistent as a pesky mosquito that you can never seem to swat away. It just keeps showing up, sometimes biting you on the leg, other times buzzing near your ear for no particular reason—and then flying away right before you can smack it. And with micromanagement being the default approach for scores of managers in the workforce, have you ever wondered how many employees out there actually enjoy micromanagement?
Organizations worldwide are steadily realizing the need for a serious upgrade in the way they work—and interest in self-management is skyrocketing as a result. In this post, I'll share some of the wisdom we picked up during our visits to some of the world's leading self-managing organizations.
