IT’S TIME FOR IF TALK NUMBER 9: THE FORUM OF DANGEROUS IDEAS HOSTED BY 6.2 EVENTS.

THEME: IDEAS THAT SHAKE, BAKE AND BRING ABOUT DISRUPTION TO THE THINGS WE THINK WE KNOW.

WHAT TO EXPECT: ANYTHING

WHEN: TUESDAY AUGUST 21 2012, FROM 6.30 PM -9.00 PM ULTIMO NSW

AT IF, WE AIM TO CREATE DIFFERING POINTS OF VIEW, NEW IDEAS AND INSPIRE PEOPLE TO THINK DIFFERENTLY. THE STORIES OUR SPEAKERS SHARE ARE INSPIRING, MOTIVATING AND SOMETIMES MOVING.

Almost always, people gain practical knowledge from amazing leaders, creative inspiration from designers and strategic thinking from entrepreneurs.

We want you to leave with a differing view on how we can all challenge the status quo. Some of our speakers have created change, some hope to bring about change, others just lead the life they choose to lead.

All we ask of our speakers is that they share honestly, openly and passionately.

Presenting a line-up of stellar speakers: 

 Tim’s work inspires people to see – and seize – opportunities they would have otherwise missed. Basically, he as a fun job, filled with travel, adventure and opportunities to collaborate with leaders and innovators around the world. Tim  is a futurist with solid international experience, client projects take him across North America, Asia and Oceania on a regular basis.

Tim focuses on the power of small; the barriers are collapsing; and, the wisdom is in the group. His message: whatever your goals, you probably need far less resources than you imagine… If the WHY is big enough, people will rally to support you. Start!
