Flash Fifteen, founded by Chris during the heart of the pandemic in late 2020, is a unique initiative designed to address the challenges faced by busy professionals in coming together, connecting, and inspiring each other. The main objective of Flash Fifteen is to create small spaces where professionals can engage in short but impactful workshops aimed at fostering connection, collaboration, and learning.
Busy professionals often find themselves isolated, working on their own to solve problems. However, high-performing teams require creative ways to come together, connect, and inspire one another. This need for connection became even more pronounced as companies transitioned to remote work during the pandemic. The loss of casual "watercooler" moments in remote work environments hindered the serendipitous interactions that often lead to valuable insights and ideas.
To address this problem, Flash Fifteen introduced the concept of a "community of practice" through 15-minute workshops. These workshops are intentionally designed for maximum serendipity, engagement, and learning. They provide participants with the language, frameworks, tools, and techniques needed to create conditions for better connection, collaboration, and teamwork.
Since its inception, Flash Fifteen has successfully hosted over 40 sessions, connecting hundreds of creative leaders from around the world. The workshop model proved to be effective and impactful, leading to its implementation in various organizations, including Butter.io, PowerBX, and several large financial institutions.
