Hello, and welcome to what was a much more evolved experience at Semi Permanent Sydney 2016.
We ditched the lectern and curated an exciting new program that focused not only on inspiring, but also enabling the creative community.
The Thursday and Friday programs were about giving real-time, global insights into getting the best out of your business or your role within one. It’s about sitting next to, or mingling with like-minded people that will open the doors for potential collaborations and partnerships.
Future State sessions with the likes of Google, Netflix, Uber, Facebook, ACE Hotels, Atlassian, IDEO, Airbnb and more, gave attendees expert advice and a direct insight into the innovative ideas that are transforming our world. Want to do business? Want to know where your industry might be in 10 years?
Saturday was curated to give the emerging community the chance to upskill and maximise the potential to make some noise in respective industries. For those looking to enter the workforce, change careers, or start a company - this was the day for you.
We also offered some lessons and learnings around the benefit of a mentor | mentee relationship - by far one of the most valuable tools in any industry - as well as access to interactive workshops including the NIDA sessions aimed at teaching people how to present their ideas in front of a crowd and the bespoke Standord d.school private audience experience built around motivation and collaboration.
