Stretch is a leadership and management conference to learn from the best and stretch yourself. Join us in Budapest, Hungary this December and get inspired by stories from leaders in great organizations as they talk about the challenges of leadership.
In 2013 we learnt about beautiful teams embedded in learning organizations. We focused on team leads, managers, founders who wanted to scale up their organization and we invited speakers who had already succeeded. In 2014 we coined the term “teamdividuals” as great teams are built of great people, and our main topic was how to become a great individual performer and a great collaborator.
After focusing on teams and individuals in the past two years, we are now targeting organizational challenges. We would like to cover topics like organizational agility, experimental mindset & learning organization, change management, embracing self-organization, making the organization more personal and finding the purpose of the organization. Come and learn how you can build more effective organizations.
Uránia Film Theather is located in the centre of Budapest. It was built in the 1880s as a music and dance hall. The building is a combination of Eastern Moorish and Venetian Gothic styles. It was first used as a movie theatre in 1899, when the Uránia Scientific Society hosted a presentation here, illustrated with moving pictures. The name Uránia has been used ever since.
Uránia is not only a beautiful building but an important landmark too - this is where the first independent Hungarian feature film was shot in 1901, and where the first film screening was held after World War II. Today, Uránia is a showcase for Hungarian film, hosting several film festivals and cultural events.
