What is Congregation?

One day virtual mind mesh festival of thinking, sharing and connecting.

Celebrating its 9th year, CongRegation™ #cong21 (Nov 26-28th), returns once again to Cong Village as a physical event under the theme of ‘Leadership’.

Our worlds and societies have evolved.  However how we guide, mould, steer, marshal and who we chose for these roles has lagged behind.  CongRegation will challenge, offer new perspectives and presents a blank canvas to discuss what it means to be a leader and what type leadership we need for business, society, personal and spiritual lives.

One of the key components of CongRegation™ is the diverse background and thinking of attendees and this includes technologists, psychologists, business people, start up community, academics, visionaries, disruptors and sector specific from farming to manufacturing.

Tickets are earned via a submission on the theme which will be debated in virtual huddles on November 24th 2021.

Social Venues

CongRegation™ 2021 will take place in Cong Village with huddles in social venues from bars, restaurants, cafes, bookshop to creative spaces.

Unique Networking

Discuss and share your insights on 'Leadership'. You pay with your insight and are encouraged to share your thoughts on everything ranging from your own personal journey, to industry insights to how ideas are helping shape your sector. We are treating 'Leadership' in its broadest form from psychology, technology, personal experiences to methodology.

Mind Mesh

You are guaranteed a day of unforgettable speakers, insights, sight seeing and socializing. Congregation is more than just a conference, it's about connecting people, allowing for non-formal networking and sharing of industry expertise and insights in a relaxed and friendly online atmosphere.

Insightful Speakers

Congregation year to year has hosted some of the worlds greatest minds and achievers. From the inventor of Baileys and author David Gluckman to the founder of Ireland's largest public forum Tom Murphy to the inspirational Gerry Duffy who ran 32 marathons in 32 days.


Conscious that attendees will be in huddles all day we have lined up some coaching specialists to guide us through some exercises and stretches to keep our bodes limber.


Following a full day and evening of sharing and learning new friendship and connections are deepened over virtual poetry open mike and stand up comedy workshops..
