About this Event
⭐️ Let’s go for a “Walky Talky” together and discuss Decoding the Future ⭐️
We can’t stop thinking about it. How can it help us? How might it harm us? Chat GPT. Generative AI. Let’s look at it from another angle…the potential for positive impact.
Let's untie those pesky knots together, + our Walky Talkies are a great way to meet new folks. New Folks = New Perspective.
✨Walk Leaders ✨
Melody Biringer | Founder, Women in Tech Regatta
Helen Pink | CEO/Organiser, TEDxAmsterdam Women
How it works: We pair you and another walker to help the other unstick something about their professional or personal lives. How should you ask for that promotion? What should you tell that friend who’s too needy? Are you on the right track with that side hustle? Nothing’s off limits here.
The goal is simple: To move your body to fuel your mind, connect more fully with yourself—and others—by connecting with the world outside. Studies show you’re twice as creative while out walking as you are slumped behind your desk. And you need those big ideas to make the most of your big life.
Rain or Shine ☂️☀️…We know October could be a crisp fall or rainy day. Let's embrace rain walks and venture out with us with an umbrella or rain gear. #makerainwalkingsexy
About Helen: Being deeply committed to promoting the rights and equality of women in all areas of life, Helen is passionate about breaking down the systemic barriers that hold women back and empowering them to achieve their full potential. Whether through advocacy, education, or actual strategic implementation, she seeks new ways to support and uplift women, recognizing that achieving gender equality requires systemic and cultural change.
On the one hand, Helen runs TEDxAmsterdam Women, that not only supports women through the content of these events but also creates a network and community of support and a place-to-be for women looking for inclusivity, empowerment and to be inspired by ideas and new ways of thinking.
On the other hand, she is the CEO for the Predixa Benelux business. Being commercial, Predixa means she can take action on the topic of DE&I in organizations because it can be related to company financial objectives. Predixa makes it possible to highlight how cultural transformation makes a company more profitable, while demonstrating the commercial benefit of implementing a good quality and focused inclusive culture. The result is an increase in productivity and improvement in the work environment for everyone.
About Melody: Melody Biringer is a self-proclaimed “connection engineer,” a serial entrepreneur who has built a career around building communities for women to thrive. She is the founder of the acclaimed Crave Company, where she's spent more than 20 years encouraging women to have fun while connecting with others, and Women in Tech Regatta, an annual series of conferences in Seattle, Vancouver, and Amsterdam, first held in 2017.
Mel coined the hashtag #RelationshipsAreTheTrueCurrency, and lives it fully. In addition to empowering women and building relationships, she juggles her responsibility as an author, event planner, social maven, and strawberry shortcake heiress—and still finds time to log more than 10,000 steps a day, usually while conducting business or catching up with friends. Mel's latest lovechild is modern walking club Loop, named after the Dutch word for "walk" (a nod to her love of Dutch culture) and an inside joke with her husband—they've been "taking a loop" around their Queen Anne neighborhood for their daily walk since 1994.
This event is co-produced by Women in Tech Regatta, Loop, and TEDxAmsterdam. Check out these future events:
