IF TALK 9: the forum of DANGEROUS IDEAS

THEME: ideas that shake and bake and bring about disruption to the things we think we know. 
WHAT TO EXPECT: ANYTHING 

 

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 you 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.

THE PANEL OF DANGEROUS 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!

Rebekah Campbell is an ex band manager turned tech entrepreneur.  Her first venture was in Wellington's Civic Square.  Aged nineteen, she organized a music festival to raise awareness of New Zealand’s youth suicide epidemic.

Rebekah moved to Sydney the following year and within three months signed the band George for management.  Two years later, George hit #1 on the ARIA Album chart and sold over 200,000 copies of their debut album Polyserena.  

Rebekah opened her own management company ‘Scorpio Music’ in 2002, which grew to become one of Australia’s largest and most successful management companies and represented artists such as Evermore, Lisa Mitchell, Operator Please, Alex Lloyd, Matt Corby and several others.

 In 2009, Rebekah came up with the idea for Posse.com while promoting a tour for Evermore.  She raised money from investors and the site launched in August 2010.

 Rebekah has spent the past two years trialing various models and techniques to engage users at Posse.  Then she had a brainwave.  What if she applied the same techniques used to break artists to develop a tech product?
