The Exec Club and WILD - Overview
WILD began as an inspiring concept that explored how some innovations/design are MILD, taking steps into the future and others are WILD, taking leaps into the future.
As our world has become more complex the incremental aspects of innovation need to change to leaps, not steps - we wanted to celebrate and recognise those WILD souls that are taking leaps more often than steps.
The prototype of the WILD Dinner happened in March 2022, with two special guests - Debbie Millman and Roxane Gay plus 18 other WILD souls - the dinner was astounding as it benefited all there through networking, ideas exchange and recognising the large scale changes needed to keep up with the chaos of life through accelerated communications systems that mean junk ideas are spreading faster than solutions.
To put it another way, Seth Godin's Idea Virus is now at pandemic proportions, we had hoped the Idea Virus was going to be about a better world, instead, we found that the opposite happened.
WILD #01 - 4 May 2022
Growing out of the prototype event WILD #01 was an invitation and collaborator based event - we took our network of Design/Innovation experts, asked them to collaborate with us and filled the room with energy to burn.
The outcomes of the evening are being reported daily with new connections, collaborations and business relationships kicking off. We consider this mission accomplished.
After the success of WILD #01 we’ve decided to do two things - a full program of WILD events across the globe and a one day conference in Melbourne in October called BETTER FUTURE BOOST. BOOST will feature the latest innovative thinking from across the globe with panellists coming in from USA, ASIA, Europe and IRL Australian souls.
