Theme: Wider Horizon

This event occurred on
August 19, 2017
9:00am - 2:00pm IST
(UTC +5.5hrs)
Guwahati, Assam

We believe that widening your view inspires creative thinking, creative thinking inspires ideas and ideas inspire change. Change for the better is the ultimate goal. We would like to have our audience see things from a different angle and then see what happens. What moves us, what shakes us, and what invites us to action is often a private journey that can lead to a very public reaction. That which others cannot see - our hopes, dreams, fears, ambition, trepidation, joy - remains ever present, moving us in a direction of our choosing.
This theme is quite broad and can easily incorporate all professional disciplines. Any good idea or talk can change the view of the individual regardless of what the talk is about.
We have moved into an important phase in the history of human evolution where new technology radically transforms our lives every day. The global conversation is growing at an exponential rate, and the playing field is leveling. Where are we going and what will be the next revolution?
It’s all about the next unknown – "The Next X."
