The annual Global Inspiration Conference is a week-long celebration of the breath. It is held in a different country each year, in a venue with beautiful natural surroundings. The GIC is a wonderful opportunity to exchange views, teach, learn and receive inspiration from like-minded friends and colleagues.
At the GIC you will find workshops, lectures, social events, sharing of best practice, dancing, good food, good company and lots of fun. It’s a wonderful opportunity for personal and professional growth, as well as making friends and valuable connections.
The GIC programme has a core structure and allows for organic creation of the daily workshops agenda. Part of the programme is fixed in advance while the rest is left open and is scheduled on a daily basis during the conference week. The open programme includes presentations, workshops, discussion topics and other activities related to the conference theme and proposed by the participants. All of these activities are offered in a spirit of peer-group exchange and inspiration. GIC also hosts the IBF Annual General Meeting, which has evolved a unique democratic process for decision-making. Members have been inspired by this to apply in their own organisations to great positive effect.
The GIC organiser and host country are selected two years in advance during the Annual General Assembly of IBF.
