PARALLEL SESSIONS: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
We will be releasing the full program over the coming weeks - so do come back for updates. Here's a start.
Building Awesome Teams
Whether you're building the next high growth startup, social venture or world-changing movement, you can't do it alone. This workshop will be a practical and effective dive into what it takes to shape, create and empower teams that make things happen and ensure feel supported as they do it.
This session is your chance to set the agenda and answer some burning questions. An Unconference is a semi-structured session where you can choose the topic to lead a discussion, workshop and share your knowledge. More information is below.
Global Ideas Design Sprint
Coordinated by Global Ideas, a leading Melbourne based not-for-profit passionate about global health and development, this Design Sprint will explore how to better understand who it is we're designing for, and how we can better meet their needs. It will be a step by step process so you can practice using the tools and methods of design thinking as you apply them - an excellent tool for any budding innovator and entrepreneur.
Ideas to Action
We all have great ideas - they come in the shower, or as we're drifting off to sleep. How do we turn these ideas into reality? This practical workshop shows how to turn those ideas into reality exploring motivation, practical realities and overcoming challenges.
Whatever your interest area you can find like-minded people and start the conversation:
How do founders avoid burnout? What does it take to start a business in a new country? How can we get more women into leadership roles? How can we support refugees to thrive in Australia? What new technology is around the corner that will change everything? Is Melbourne still one of the world's great cities - will it remain that way?
We know that there's as much talent in the audience as on stage - and this is our chance to open up the event for more great ideas.
We have some fun surprises in store for 2019 but, of course, we can't tell you what they are. That'd ruin the surprise.
OUTSTANDING FOOD AND NETWORKING
Our catering is provided by local social enterprises and is a global celebration of food and creativity. Our meal breaks: morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided as part of the ticket and give plenty of opportunity to connect with other attendees is a relaxed, fun and engaging setting. We know it'll be a highlight.
KEYNOTE DEBATE: "THIS IS THE GREATEST TIME TO BE ALIVE"
Has technology made life easier or has social media killed the concept of privacy as well as our attention spans?
Is innovation solving the problems that matter, or just getting food to our door a little earlier?
Join six leading voices from the entrepreneurship, startup and innovation eco-system as they go head-to-head in this spirited and lively debate of ideas.
To maximise inclusion we have a Pay-As-You-Can pricing model.
Suggested prices are as follows:
