Some may say that creative thinking in modern times is limited to dinner party philosophy after a bottle of cheap red. This is a concept that the Creative Innovation Asia Pacific 2012 Global event (Ci2012 to its friends) intends to battle – with the pen rather than the sword.
The 2012 theme of 'Wicked Problems, Great Opportunities – Leadership and Courage for Volatile Times' promises to share some left of centre ideas that you will be able to apply to real business opportunities.
The only forum of its kind, Ci2012 is an interactive community promising to teach delegates to “leverage their often hidden ‘right-brained’ creative capabilities to help alter traditional mindsets”. If you don’t understand what that means, then perhaps you could really use the help.
Ci2012 combines the talents of over 40 world-class leaders, artists, thinkers and innovators, including Google’s Chief Technology Advocate, Michael T Jones (USA); scientist, writer, broadcaster and member of the House of Lords, Baroness Susan Adele Greenfield (UK); NESTA Chief Executive Geoff Mulgan (UK); Mao’s Last Dancer Li Cunxin; CSIRO CEO, Dr Megan Clark; Anthropologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Wade Davis (USA) among others.
