We tend to think of life as a continuum and success as a measurement where we plot progress against time. However real success is better defined by the courage we showing mere moments – the definable moments that can change the trajectory of our lives.

When the defining moments come, either we define the moments or they define us. Success has no middle ground. Choose well and we move forward. Choose poorly, and we drop back. Don’t choose at all and we passively accept whatever comes our way. In a world of increasing complexity and ambiguity, leaders must achieve the highest levels of personal leadership to deliver results in a demanding context. Deploying our skills in the moments that matter is a simple idea – but it is not a small one. It can fundamentally change how we work, lead and live.


  • Develop the agility to continually evolve
  • Curate life to use your strengths more consistently
  • Formulate a structure to sustain personal performance

"Without a doubt the best conference in Australia with a delightful mix of creativity and big thinking bringing together an eclectic group of industry, community and education leaders. Once again, I’ve come away enthused by new ideas, more aware of future trends, and heartened by the kindness of humanity. We all have a role to play and it should be a collective one." Kerry Anderson, Founder of Operation Next Gen

"Conferences are boring. Creative Innovation is more like a rodeo for ideas, and you are guaranteed to leave wanting to make the world better for everyone." Andrew Despi, A.kin

"Kudos to Tania for organising the the 2019 CI Conference in Melbourne - it is the best I have attended so far. All the speakers and sessions were very well-planned.

Your effort in this space has truly made Melbourne a global innovation and entrepreneurship hub." Danny Ong, Deakin University

"I wanted to pass along how incredible I thought Creative Innovation was and how much your passion for life and for humanity was inspiring to all of us. It was a privilege to be included and one that I am very grateful for." John Pickering, Chief Behavioural Scientist

"Creative Innovation is a transformational platform built by changemakers for changemakers. It is an educational adventure showcasing the forefront of ideas internationally." Melissa Warner, Ci2019 Scholarship Winner & Education Officer, Mind Medicine Australia

"Creative Innovation 2019 was one of the most well-organised events I’ve ever taken part in. From beginning to the end, every detail had been planned through and taken care of. Secondly, are the production values. As a result, it was possible to attend all the sessions without suffering conference burn-out, happy in the knowledge that the next piece of content was guaranteed to delight and challenge the senses." Richard Claydon (Singapore)
