In 2020, we are exploring the idea of: IGNITE! We are looking for inspiring presenters who can captivate us with their message.
We are looking for diversity and difference in interpretation of this year’s theme that will create a vibrant program to be shared from the Red Circle in the fall. Ideas that are worth spreading, that will explore new concepts, expand and push boundaries, and engage curious and creative minds.
What are you doing/seeing/working in, that ignite and set alight (or conversely suppress and deter) in technology, medicine, education, film, art, community, culture, entertainment, enterprise, music, sport, physics, chemistry, academia, cyber security, nano-technology, conservation, business or economic development, research, food, communication?
