The mastermind concept follows a simple procedure:

Each table hosts 5 participants + either the host, Myriam or the keynote speaker.

Every participant receives 30 minutes in the spotlight. You can use your time to ask for feedback, advice, methods or best practices. 

Through the diversity of the group, you will find new perspectives from experts in the field of facilitation. They will point out strengths that you might not have acknowledged before. And, you will learn from their challenges.

In 2.5 hours, you get insights worth of a full coaching day. 


How to join

The quality of a mastermind depends on the individuals who attend it. Each member must be willing to share knowledge, expertise and genuine feedback. Then, the group will grow larger than its parts. 

Therefore, I carefully select all participants. Everyone must be eager to give and take - ideas, feedback, and joy.

Your hosts

Daniel Stillman designs conversations for a living, and insists that you do, too. He works with organizations like Google, Nike and Visa to help them frame and sustain productive dialogue, deepen their facilitation skills, and coach them through the innovation process.

He hosts The Conversation Factory podcast and is the author of the upcoming book, “Good Talk: How to Design Conversations that Matter” a handbook for changemakers and innovators on how they design the conversations in their work and lives.


Myriam Hadnes has an academic background in Economics and Sociology. She earned a PhD in Behavioural Economics from Goethe University Frankfurt and now applies her insights to her facilitation practice.

While Myriam taught Bachelor, Master and PhD students in Europe and Asia experimental economics, she now works with international clients such as the European Investment Bank, Porsche and the Lufthansa Group.

Since March 2019, Myriam hosts a podcast on workshop facilitation for which she interviews facilitators, change managers and coaches about successful ways to facilitate collaboration of teams. The “workshops work” podcast attracts over 3,000 plays per month. 

The agenda

At the event, we will follow the flow:

  1. Check-in and warm-up
  2. Daniel's course on designing powerful feedback conversations 
  3. 5 Mastermind rounds of 30 minutes each
  4. Debrief & Harvesting
  5. Headshot pictures
  6. Networking with drinks and snacks

One week before the event, you will receive a complete deck of prep-material in the form of templates, guidelines, and questions that will help you to get ready for your time in the spotlight.

Experience showed that a sound preparation pays off. If you ask your peers precise questions you will get spot-on answers, inspiration, and advice.
