Innovation Explorer 2019
The new edition of the forum raises the question of the limits of the capabilities of technology and people. Where, these boundaries will take us out? How far will we get? Is there a last barrier that we will not go through? Do the technologies develop outside our control and whether they are good or bad?
This year we have only two, complementary, but also controversial, panels: Technology and Humans.
Technology panel will meet you with incredible inventors that create magical products and services beyond human frontiers and the black mirror.
Humans panel will meet you with remarkable innovators in the sphere of medicine, sports, arts, economics and politics that leave behind a significant inception trace. Both will guide you to your unimaginable journey beyond ultimate frontiers.
Among the lecturers in 2019 you will be able to see:
- BBC Creative Director, Dan Ramsden (England)
- Butzi, TedX's keynote lecturer and creative lecturer and magician (France)
- Stephen Thomas, Director of the American Public Health Center (USA)
- Meenu Singh, Learning Experience Designer at Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (USA)
- Bulgarian inventors and innovators such as Spas Kerimov, Slaveyko Dzhambazov, Elvin Guri and many others, organized in two panels: Technology and People.
Traditionally, workshops will also be held at the event. This year they are two:
1. Radical Collaboration is a method of radical participation that is based on a key principle of Design Thinking about the inclusion of diverse experience to the context of the problem.
"Radical co-operation" differs from conventional approaches because it is intended to cover multiple points of view in a general direction rather than simply rely on "so-called experts." This process helps to overcome or go beyond unconscious prejudices , who are inclined to compel us to circle, and are facilitators of the Stanford University Innovation Fellows Society.
2. and Playfulness LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, a creative workout method in the serious business world created by LEGO. The idea of the methodology came in 1996 when two professors Johan Roos and Bart Viktor in Switzerland, together with Leo Group Chief Executive Officer and owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, explored alternative planning tools and systems. They develop a new understanding of the value of employees and a concept of an evolving adaptive strategy that includes, of course, the use of LEGO elements as three-dimensional models to address business issues and challenges. The strategy is called LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® and the new company called Executive Discovery Ltd. is developing and implementing the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method on the market. The lecturer, Nikolay Tinkov, is a certified coach of the Danish method.
