The breakfast event, scheduled for Thursday, 19 March 2015 at Merewether Surfhouse, features an impressive speaker lineup, including the below:
- Chris Ridd, Managing Director, Xero Australia
- Jaimes Leggett, CEO, M&C Saatchi
- Roger Langsdon, Marketing Manager, Planet Innovation
- Helen Barclay , Inventiologist, Inventium
The speakers are from diverse companies, but they are similar in that they embed innovation into their company cultures, resulting in improving the lives of their clients and their employees while simultaneously improving their bottom line.
Christina Gerakiteys, founder of Ideation At Work, says that fostering innovation in companies is now more crucial than ever.
“For the last two years people have left the breakfast inspired to have new conversations and with an idea of how other organisations are incorporating innovation into their businesses,” Christina said.
“I have a two motivating factors in bringing these speakers to Newcastle (outside of my love for creativity and innovation). The first is so that we can hear from speakers that may not otherwise come to this area – hear specifically what they are doing in the innovation space.”
“The second motivating factor is so that our speakers can see what a great city this is. Over the last couple of years we have had some of the speakers return – even create important business contacts with people in the region.”
Event supporters SiDCOR Chartered Accountants are a synergistic choice as hosts as they were listed as third in the ‘BRW Top 20 Best Places to Work For’ list for 2104 and in the ‘BRW Top 100 Accounting Firms’ list.
