Take an inside look at WorldBlu LIVE!

WorldBlu LIVE 2013 is the world’s premier gathering on freedom in the workplace. It is designed for individuals and organizations who recognize the power of freedom and democracy as a leading tool for boosting the bottom-line, promoting innovation, attracting top talent and inspiring full engagement.

More than just a conference, WorldBlu LIVE is an experience that combines a showcase for democratic innovation, a platform for rule-breakers, and an audience of revolutionaries. This is all wrapped in a unique, stylized environment that will leave you inspired, full of fresh ideas, and connected with a world-class community of leaders. Join us for the 5th anniversary of WorldBlu LIVE!

"WorldBlu are pioneers of the workplace democracy movement and it is an honor to be a WorldBlu awardee. Just reading about the principles of organizational democracy isn’t enough. WorldBlu LIVE brought the principles to life in fresh and imaginative ways. I also enjoyed the opportunity to connect with a room full of like-minded individuals. It was so inspiring to hear about what others are doing to support the movement." + Jamie Naughton, Speaker of the House, Zappos, Inc.
"As the only Fortune 500 company among The WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces, DaVita was uniquely positioned to share with and learn from a wide range of progressive organizations during an engaging and enriching WorldBlu LIVE experience. It was a great opportunity to interact with many like-minded organizations." + Steve Priest, Chief Wisdom Officer, DaVita
"WorldBlu LIVE brought together a room full of decision makers working to bring revolutionary change to workplaces worldwide. I particularly enjoyed networking with individuals primed and interested to learn about how we practice democracy at Rypple." + Daniel Debow, CEO, Rypple
"New Belgium Brewing has always practiced what we like to call high involvement culture with open book management – yes, a democratic workplace. The great ideas that become visible through WorldBlu LIVE help me to be inspired on methods and ideas that we may consider to help us continue this great culture as we grow from small employer to a national scope. WorldBlu LIVE is a great catalyst to creative and meaningful thinking." + Jenny Briggs, Human Resources Director, New Belgium Brewing
"WorldBlu LIVE was a fantastic opportunity to make great connections with like-minded leaders. Such insightful and articulate conversations helped me expand my horizons and learn from the best in the workplace democracy revolution." + Bob Gutermuth, CEO, Dialog
