Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) has announced that Duncan Wardle, founder of iD8 and innov8 and former head of innovation and creativity at Disney, will deliver the opening keynote address at the association’s big event, Evolve 2021 on 8 September.
Evolve is the largest annual national conference for the Australian events industry.
Wardle will offer insights on how, if you want to be different, you have to Think Different. Leaning on his over 25-year experience at Disney, his Think Different presentation will aim to take audiences on a creative journey.
This journey intends to provide insight into questions, such as, ‘Do you ever wonder why most of your best ideas come to you in the shower, during your commute, while falling asleep, or some other unexpected place?’; ‘Have you ever pitched a new idea, only to watch it get diluted or killed as it moves through the processes?’ and ‘Have you ever wanted to know how Walt Disney came up with the idea for Disneyland or how Netflix completely revolutionised the movie rental industry?’.
Throughout Wardle’s session, attendees will be given a set of innovation tools and techniques, including the breakthrough ‘What If’ creative thinking tool, to apply to their professional and personal lives.
