Creative Innovation 2012 - Melbourne in November

Bill Jarrard's picture

Creative Innovation 2012 - Melbourne in NovemberInnovation is something that every organisation should be well on top of, and with the current debate on Australia's loss of productivity in recent years it is again time to think about what is actually happening.

Business gurus tell us that business has only two functions – Marketing and Innovation, the rest are just costs. 

If this is true then the need to be able to generate and develop innovative ideas is crucial to your business success – whether you're a major corporate, an small entreprise, a NFP, or even a government body.

Which is why you need to stay abreast of what is happening in the field.  One way to do that is to attend the Creative Innovation Asia Pacific 2012 conference in Melbourne this November. 

Ci2012 features some of the top international thought leaders in the area of creative thinking, innovation and strategies for success. As Mindwerx is a supporter of this event, we are able to offer all our colleagues, friends, clients and readers (that's you) a wicked discount on the event.

Tickets are now on sale and earlybird is great value, particularly when used along with a 10% discount you can get by using the coupon code WICKED. Deep Conversations start at $125 and Master Classes at $250, and you can save as much as $500 if you book now.

The main theme of Ci2012 is:

Leadership and courage for volatile times

Eric Knight in his new book Reframe says: “Wicked problems have no stopping rules. They are the product of an increasingly complex, interconnected world.”

This theme will be addressed at the personal, organisational and global level across the major sectors of business, industry, community and government. Sessions will allow delegates the opportunity to expand their scope of creative understanding and learn new strategies whilst also leveraging their innate, but sometimes hidden, right-brained creative capabilities. Artists in residence will create moments of non-verbal content that help to change traditional mindsets.

Using innovative audience interaction the sessions will provide an exchange between presenter and audience. The one way communication presentation style that stifles many conferences will be transformed by world class dialogues, facilitators, performers, provocateurs and “hot spot” debate centres.

The theme will also facilitate Deep Conversations around important and challenging issues we face. A series of Master Classes with leading facilitators will enable delegates to take away new strategies and inspiration into their work and lives.

The Gala Dinner will feature outstanding world class entertainment and will allow for plenty of time for further networking and conversation.
