Forward Thinking Series
Vicsport's Forward Thinking Series brings together leaders from the fields of sport and physical activity, and innovators and pioneers from across domains as diverse as service design, technology, social enterprise, communications, education and community development. Participants will learn from those who are leading in their prospective fields about how they can design and deliver engaging and sustainable service offerings, how to think and work together more effectively, and how they can identify and capitalise on emerging opportunities now, and in to the future.
Insight and Innovation Lab
The Insights and Innovation Lab will provide an opportunity for participants to gain insights into the changing business of community sport; learn about the principles and practices of leading entrepreneurs and social innovators, such as design thinking, startup methodology, strategic foresight, systems thinking and open collaboration; and, explore what a dynamic, innovative community sport sector might look like.
The aim of the event is identify how we can start taking sporting organisations or communities from where they are now, to where we want them to be.
The Insight and Innovation Lab will be facilitated by Doing Something Good, a leader in Victoria’s burgeoning social innovation sector. The event will also feature lightning talks by a cross section of leading thinkers, entrepreneurs and design professionals who will share their experiences and insights into innovation in service design and delivery, community building, business model development and working with teams.
