Creative Knowledge is working with Rideout and Talent 4 Europe on delivering the digital marketing and comms for one-day conference event presented at the Hyatt Regency, Birmingham Wednesday 23rd July 2014, 9.30am.-4.30pm.
About the conference
Talent is everywhere, so we’re told. It’s just hidden away, waiting to be discovered. The abiding belief is that what brings it out is a good competition – just so long as it’s televised. But what is talent? We don’t take the view that talent is just artistic; rather it encompasses all aspects of human endeavour. Do people vary in the talents they possess? If so, why? Is talent a result of nature or nurture? Do we need to know the answer to this question in order to answer the next; how do you nurture it? Surely it can’t just be down to devising ever-varying competitions.
In this one day event we’re bringing together some of best minds on the subject – from the arts, economics, psychology and education. They’ll be giving presentations but also taking challenges and questions from attenders. The list of guest speakers is still evolving so check back for updates. We plan for some real debate.
Confirmed Speakers include:
Germaine Greer, Academic, Author and Journalist
Tim Harford, Economist and Author
Adrian Furnham, Professor of Psychology University of London
John Bergman, Founder of Geese Theatre (USA)
