We are excited and delighted to invite you to join us at the Paris end of Melbourne in beautiful autumn. This really is the best time of the year to be in marvellous Melbourne. Creative Innovation 2015 Asia Pacific will take place 23-25 March. The theme for Ci2015 is “From disruption to sustainable growth”. Giant Disruption always heralds huge opportunities. But are we ready? This very important conversation is designed to bring about a manifesto for change in ourselves, our organisations, our communities and our world.
We were so thrilled that Ci2013 was named Corporate Event of the Year in the global Eventex Awards! It certainly is an incredible honour and tribute to all of our amazing Creative Innovation Global team.
Ci2015 will be the place to connect, create, disrupt, change, explore, question, share, grow, learn…and then take action! A place to be entertained and inspired. A place to reinvent and shape the sustainable future we want. Join big and small business, entrepreneurs, educators, creative and government leaders, the next generation of leaders and leading thinkers from all around the world, Asia and Australia for ‘positive human collisions’ that will change the course of the future!
Ci2015 is a cross-sector, community wide program and the cross-pollination of ideas at this event is a significant factor for anyone wishing to innovate and develop more of a culture of collaboration and innovation.
The challenge of the 21st century is to transform our organisations to adapt flexibly and rapidly to the ever-changing, complex and volatile environments we face. We will have to reduce cost structures while increasing productivity, adopt new ways of working and invent sustainable new business models that challenge old ways of thinking.
In the workplace, creativity is the most powerful tool an individual or organisation can have. Around the world there is a growing recognition that we need to develop our creativity and learn to innovate…or die! Creative, courageous leadership is the strategic tool of the 21st Century.
This is a rare opportunity to learn, connect and share ideas across sectors with some of the world’s most influential thinkers and innovators under one roof.
As John M. Richardson said: “When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
We look forward to co-creating the future with you at this inspirational global event.
A key element in the advance of science and education is the process of collaboration. As a scientist and leader, I appreciate the value of using disruptive thinking and collaboration to develop breakthroughs in complex issues. This Creative Innovation 2015 Asia Pacific conference focuses even more on using disruptive and creative thinking to stimulate collaboration so that we can come together across sectors and develop sustainable solutions for the challenges we are facing at all levels of business and society.
The Ci conference has an amazing balance of creative arts and intellectual knowledge that will inspire educators, scientists, innovators, businesses, creatives and thought leaders to prepare and collaborate together for a new future.
The learnings, results and connections you make may well change you, your organisation and your world. I look forward to welcoming you to this amazing Ci2015.
Successful leadership in business and life often requires simplifying the complex, adapting to change and finding new ways through essential issues to achieve sustainable growth.
This fifth Creative Innovation event provides a unique chance to see through the complexity of the disruption we are experiencing and find new ways of thinking and collaborating to achieve lasting growth. It is a wonderful opportunity for leaders and potential leaders in all walks of life to explore and understand these issues and to take strategies and new thinking back into their organisations.
I am extremely pleased to be associated with this world class conference program from its early beginnings. Being named Corporate Event of the Year in the global Eventex Awards is a testament to the visionary thinking and creativity of the organisers.
This outstanding event is a wonderful contributor to developing a true culture of innovation in this nation. It also enables participants to develop themselves, their organisations and communities in very meaningful ways and take actions that will make a difference.
Ci2015 is a very special opportunity not to be missed as we race ever faster into a new future.
Never has the world’s need for innovation and creativity in every walk of life been greater. If the pressing social, economic and environmental challenges of our contemporary world were easy, we would have already solved them.
In this second decade of the twenty-first century, we have learned that those who work in government and the public sector need new ways of thinking and acting to generate, shape and connect ideas with the people whose courage, creativity and leadership can make them a reality. The theme for Ci2015 “From disruption to sustainable growth” will showcase some of the most disruptive ideas and thinking that will change our world. The leadership, thinking and actions we take will determine whether we can develop a sustainable future.
With its creativity, its stimulating array of international and national speakers, its emphasis on cross-fertilisation of ideas and its focus on the future and its opportunities, this sparkling Creative Innovation event should not be missed.
