Event description

Description

As the final Festival of Ambitious Ideas for 2019, we will be celebrating some of the emerging start-ups and entrepreneurs, innovators and inventors working on interesting projects from a range of different sectors – technology, social enterprise, creative industries, health and more.

Our speakers will discuss their passion projects, plans and ambitions for 2020, followed by a networking opportunity. The event is designed to be fast-paced and informal, following the Ignite format where speakers each only have 5 minutes to tell their story and ‘ignite’ the audience.

The inspiration for the event comes from the Medici family, who in 15th century Italy were instrumental in bringing together scientists, poets, artists and architects in the town of Florence. Here they swapped ideas, learned from each other, and collaborated. This brought about one of the most creative and innovative periods in history - the Renaissance.

Speakers include:

  • Kate Freeman from The Healthy Eating Hub - “The Power of Incremental Change for Diet”

  • Dr Andrew Horsley from Quantum Brilliance - “Quantum computing with diamonds”

  • Rachael Coghlan and Kate Nixon from CraftACT – “Design Canberra Festival”

  • Linda Cavanagh from Canberra Cyber Security Innovation Node – “Police, Hackers & Cyber: The National Missing Persons Hackathon”

  • Olga Imbriano from Bellelis – “How a passion and dreams turned into a business”

  • Brad Butt from Mens Health Downunder – “Lifting the kilt on men’s health”

  • Jennifer Edmunds from Place Logic – “The Silent Majority”

  • Emma Hamilton from YouGoCo – “Resolving Problems in Business”

  • Dr Omar Zuaiter from Dentroid Technologies – “Dentroid®: Needleless, noiseless and pain-free dentistry on-demand”

  • Lisa La Maitre from Therapy Masters – “Be All of Me”

  • Stephen Trowell from PPB Technology – “Evolution is cleverer than we are – adventures in building better biosensors”

  • Jess Barnes from Feather and Barb – “A New Kind of Fit”

  • Phil Preston from Smart Blox – “Replacing the chain: Putting renewable energy in the right hands”

  • Kathy Ehmann from Community Toolbox Canberra – “A library of things”

  • Shannon Pickles from Lightning Rock – “'Metaphysica - Changing the world through Virtual Reality'”
