Imagine the possibilities if you encourage cross-disciplinary engagement and unleash untapped potential for business events. Design visionary Neri Oxman’s breakthrough model, The Cycle of Creativity, boldly connects design, science, engineering and art in surprising new ways. Oxman will empower you to think beyond department silos and disciplinary boundaries, mapping out how multiple disciplines inspire, inform and shape one another. If you’re eager to abandon outmoded strategies, Oxman will inspire you to collaborate, communicate and foster inclusivity to welcome limitless opportunities.

Changes in behavior, habit and attitudes are causing a dramatic shift in what your participants need and want from events. In this session, Greg Bogue will explore the hierarchy of human gatherings, as he showcases how events are evolving from staged experiences to passion-filled and purposeful movements. Through stories and activities, participants will examine how today’s most successful events deliver richer experiences, built on a much stronger and sustainable foundation—personal values.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Identify three key differences between staged experiences and movements
  • Explain why the era of “blind” attendance is ending and how personal values will impact decisions to attend your events in the future
  • Describe how a concise Organizing Principle drives better design decisions and investments
