Thank you all for the great vibes and inspiring conversations at Lift last week. It was a fabulous adventure for us and we hope you had an uplifting, valuable and fun experience, too!
There is always quite some magic at work for us in preparing these conferences. No matter how much we shape the program and anticipate the interactions and "cross-pollinations", the way it all comes together and finally plays out on site is always surprising! But what constantly keeps amazing us, from edition to edition, is how cool, relaxed, constructive and positive the audience is. It's the best environment you could ever wish for and our team agrees unanimously that to provide the platform for this to happen is worth every minute of work, every minute of not sleeping :)
We quickly wanted to share the wrap-up of the conference we presented at the end of Lift13.
Lift13 in 43 words
During the conference Nicolas distilled 43 words to describe Lift13. It might be helpful to get the explanation from the livestream for context. (The wrap-up starts at about 01:08 in the file).

Lift13: From "How" to "What"
In the second part of the wrap-up Hannes described perfectly what we all felt: That this year's Lift Conference did leave us with one impression: We are humbled.
We talked about "agile", and talked about global brands and hundred thousand people corporations.
We talked about "crowdsourced", and talked about national constitutions.
We talked about "makers", and talked about billion dollar businesses.
If we have billion dollar maker businesses, what will they make?
If we have a hundred thousand Indian Agilistas, what will they build?
If we can crowdsource a constitution, what will we write?
And a humble spirit of engaged inquiry.
Thank you all.
