REINVENTING THE WHEEL

Human + Innovation: the show where our interviewees only know half the story…

Every interviewee is asked questions on six topics split into two areas – ‘human’ and ‘innovation’. Interviewees choose the “innovation” topics, and the “human” topics are selected by an independent algorithm. No-one knows what will be revealed on each spin of the wheel.

EXAMPLE INNOVATION TOPICS

  • Technology
  • Leadership
  • Inspiration
  • Innovation
  • Mentors

HUMAN INNOVATION TOPICS

  • Formative experiences
  • Heroes
  • Ethics
  • Fears
  • Mistakes

THE AUDIENCE

Ready and able to change, create, innovate, and improve the world in which we live.
1

ONBOARDING & DEFINE OUTCOMES

Working with a Producer from day one to live show, each Showcase is built from pre-agreed outcomes. Messaging, experience, leads generated, sentiment. They all play their part in defining campaign success metrics.

AUDIENCE REQUIREMENTS

Understanding target audience profiles, registration strategy, content resonation – and of course, what an audience should feel, think and action – is critical to shaping a Showcase. We do this in partnership, tracking back to primary outcomes.

AUDIENCE INTELLIGENCE & REGISTRATION

Defining a shared or independent registration process – alongside audience profiling if audience acquisition is activated – provides the right insights to prepare for your audience specifics. Hyper-target in-show messaging and give your VIPs a front seat.

4

LIVE & ON DEMAND ENGAGEMENT

From our pre-show virtual 3D lobby space – to our in-show audience engagement tactics – we define when, how and where audiences engage. Post show, we convert that experience to become on demand and repeatable.

Connecting business leaders with the knowledge, peer-led insights and solutions they need to succeed.
