Innovation, with a bit of help from Sydney’s TEDx 2015

Posted in IR Thoughts

Brimming with inspiration from the recent TEDx talks in Sydney recently? Us too!  In case you missed the event, shared below are a couple of wrap-up articles that caught the eye of the IRM team.

TEDx is the local variation of TED, the world-famous, not for profit speech series, devoted to spreading ideas.  Last Thursday, the Sydney TEDx event for 2015 was held at the Opera House, with a full program of interesting and insightful speakers.

While we didn’t make it on the day, it didn’t take the IRM team long to seek out highlights from the program.

TEDx takes over Sydney!

In this neat Mumbrella post, Five lessons from TEDx Sydney are explored, along with the video clips from:

  • Tom Uglow, creative director of Google Creative Labs:
  • Hamish Skermer, billed as the ‘King of the Compost Toilet’
  • Dylan Alcott, Paralympic gold medallist, Order of Australia medal recipient and motivational speaker
  • Tega Brain, Artist, and
  • Tony Fry, Design theorist and philosopher

Meanwhile, over at Business Insider, Alex Herber explores how corporate Australia sat alongside “along side the usual hipsters, startup reps and academics” in order to drive their own thinking and innovation.

We hope you enjoy viewing and reading through the pieces from TEDx.  Like our clients, at IRM, we’re always looking for ways to innovate to improve our business.  If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to save costs and make your business processes more efficient, check out these posts that we shared recently through our blog, IRMatters:
