We will dive into history to uncover some of the lessons that can be learned from the Golden Age of Piracy; taking the cartoonish buccaneers we know from pop culture, and reframing them as innovators.

How can you, as a Community Leader (or aspiring to be one), think differently: constructively challenge the status quo, whether it’s rewriting the rules of team culture or reimaging engagement?

One of the most common misconceptions about pirates is that they were bloodthirsty agents of chaos, when in fact they were highly creative, organised and collaborative. Pirates were nothing without their crew, and they can teach us 21st century-ers a thing or two about fair leadership and effective collaboration.

We’re going to be led by Alex Barker, ‘Captain’ of the global Be More Pirate movement. Prepare to venture off the edges of your map with plenty of real world scenarios that you can take away and use.

Come and join us! Welcome to our space to chat, hear what other community leaders are thinking, and discuss pirates!
