9.40 TALK: WHY GOOD IDEAS MATTER
Mark Earls, author of Herd, will discuss the importance of gathering inspiration across categories, market sectors, and groups - and how to turn these insights into mass change.

10.10 PANEL: GOOD IDEAS FROM LONDON
What positive inspiration is growing out of London's creative renaissance? With one out of every eight Londoners working in a creative industry, the city is proving itself to still be one of the greatest places for creatives to live and work in the world. Led by moderator Matt Hardisty (AnalogFolk), a panel including Matt Brown (Londonist), Justin Quirk (FHM), Taryn Ross (Urban Junkies), and Paul Andrew Williams (Young British Film Director of the Year 2007) will explore what makes London tick, its multicultural environs - and what good ideas are coming out of the city that are exciting them today.

10.50 TALK: GOOD IDEAS ACROSS DISCIP
Eva Rucki (Troika) will provide insights into the philosophy and ideas behind Troika’s multi-disciplinary work, covering graphics, communication, art, product design and engineering, focusing on the iterative process employed in the development of their projects.

11.40 PANEL: GOOD IDEAS IN DESIGN
How do we use design to bring inspired ideas to life?
Led by Amanda Gore (PSFK), a panel of leading minds from the creative community including Coralie Bickford-Smith (Penguin), Cameron Leslie (fabric/matter), Kate Moross, and Nicolas Roope (Hulger/Poke) will discuss how design can - and must - weave a story between an audience and a product, service and brand.

12.20 TALK: GOOD IDEAS OVER TIME

 How do good ideas in technology fare over time? Richard Banks (Microsoft) will discuss the afterlives of our technological objects (both physical and digital) and the ideas that emerge when we start thinking about possessions in the long term - as heirlooms that will live on after we're gone.

12.50 Lunch: Guests are invited to join James Cherkoff and Johnnie Moore in the Break Out Room for a discussion on how to turn Good Ideas into Good Work.

Led by moderator Piers Fawkes (PSFK), mobile experts Mike Butcher (Techcrunch UK), Dan Hon (Six to Start), Matt Jones (Dopplr), and Jonathan MacDonald (Ogilvy) will examine the diverse opportunities developing at the intersection of mobile, location and the web.


2.50 PANEL: GOOD IDEAS & YOUTH
Whether we know it or not, connecting to youth today requires fresh inventiveness and a different way of thinking. In a conversation led by Jeff Squires (PSFK), Brett Booth (MTV Sticky), Paul Graham (Anomaly UK), Terry Guy (Monorex/Secret Wars), and Jenny Owen (Ruby Pseudo) will discuss what defines British youth culture today and creative, effective ways companies and organizations can create authentic, respectful relationships with an increasingly savvy and skeptical generation.

3.50 TALK: GOOD IDEAS IN STORYTELLING
