Creative Innovation 2017 (Ci2017)

Welcome Notes

Tania de Jong AM, Founder & Executive Producer Ci Global

We are excited and delighted to invite you to join us at the Paris ­end of Melbourne in beautiful spring. This really is the best time of the year to be in marvellous Melbourne. Creative Innovation 2017 Asia Pacific will take place 13-15 November. The theme for Ci2017 is “Human Intelligence 2.0 – Thriving in the Age of Acceleration ”.

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 Creative Innovation Global was named Corporate Event of the Year in the Australian Event Awards and as one of the Anthill SMART 100! It certainly is an incredible honour and tribute to all of our amazing Creative Innovation Global team.

Ci2017 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, industry, entrepreneurs, educators, venture capitalists, community and government leaders from around Australia and the world for ‘positive human collisions’ that will change the course of the future!

Ci2017 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, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Agility. Perhaps no word is more important for today’s leaders. The ever-increasing pace of change demands that leaders be ready, willing, and able to quickly adapt and change course. As the saying goes, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

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.

We look forward to co­-creating the future with you at this inspirational global event.
