PDF file of the Tentative Program

EIS'18 brings inquiring minds together over three days to tackle the intersection of three themes – design, creativity and innovation.

We are curating what we consider the best of all worlds – academic, industry, government and the community sector – to challenge commonly held beliefs and inject more diversity into our innovation thinking and practice.

The program involves deliberate interference of:
● Ideas
● People
● Tools
● Methods
● Mindsets
● Tribes
● Societies.

Benefits of attending
Are you hooked on a particular innovation method? Do you have exposure to other creative sources or ways of thinking? Do you have a conceptual framework for what tools work and when? How often do you question the fitness of your approach?

You will leave EIS with:
- a conceptual framework to guide your innovation agenda;
- a real understanding of what is working and not working in your toolset – and mindset;
- Insight into creative and design developments leveraging emerging technologies;
- new skills and techniques, and the confidence to combine and use them;
- a deeper appreciation of the drivers of distinct innovation ‘tribes’;
- ways to bridge language and philosophical divides and create unique collective value;
- a rejuvenated innovation mindset;
- new contacts
