The Global Innovation Summit features expert speakers across many fields of innovation: business, government, entrepreneurship, academia, social impact, the creative arts, and others. However, unlike a typical conference, the format is hands-on, informal, and interactive. The vast majority of the sessions will take place without a formal stage, and none will involve tedious presentations. Instead, sessions will be unscripted, casual, and in-the-round, to foster a highly engaged discussion. Every single attendee at the Summit will have the opportunity to speak visibly, share ideas, and take action. We promise an eclectic, interesting, and vigorous mixture of dialogue and doing.
