Functional Planning at PlannerCon Europe

Sophia Pan contacted me this last week as she is organising a small side event at PlannerCon Europe  next weekend about 'Functional Planning' I've christened it FunCon! I will be attending!

Functional Planning Informal Meet-Up at PannerCon Europe

This is for anyone who is into functional planning – using (not decorating) a planning to assist you to manage your life (short and long term) and achieve your goals.

Date: Sunday, October 29
Time: 8:30 – 9:50 am

Location: Le Pain Quotidien (Galerie de la Reine 11, 1000 Bruxelles

Everyone will purchase whatever he or she would like at Le Pain Quotidien. There is no fee for attending this meet-up. If there is a change in meeting location, it will be announced here in the comments.

Since we don’t have a lot of time, we will only do a brief intro (name, country/countries).

After that, we will share
  1. Functional planning system that currently works for folks (8:30 – 9:20 am) and 
  2. One questions or tip for folks who are looking for strategies or suggestions to run their life more effectively and/or achieve a certain goal (9:21 – 9:40 am). 
We will take group photos (of us and our planners), exchange contact info, and wrap up from 9:41 – 9:50 am.  Folks who plan to be at the raffles should be able to make it back to the conference at 10 am.

Please bring one or more functional planner you are currently using to share with the group. We especially welcome stories/experiences of using a planner to achieve certain life goals (pass a professional exam, lose weight, manage a household, manage health challenges, financial management, etc.)

Feel free to message Sophia with questions!


  1. Wish I could be there! I'm always looking for new methods for productivity and only find stickers. Depressing!

  2. I really want to come. Do I have to register with Sophia? Would you have her contact data?
