Creative Innovation 2012 will be held this year in Melbourne. It is a place to connect, create, change, explore, question, share and learn. A place to be entertained and inspired. A place to re-invent the future. The event is bringing together the diverse voices of some of the leading speakers, thinkers, entrepreneurs, innovators, futurists, educators and leaders in our world today. Ci2012 is an international community-wide, cross-sector program for leaders and emerging leaders.
Eric Knight in his new book Reframe says: “Wicked problems have no stopping rules. They are the product of an increasingly complex, interconnected world.”
The main theme of Ci2012 is: WICKED PROBLEMS, GREAT OPPORTUNITIES!
Leadership and courage for volatile times
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.
