The C2 experience
Welcome to the two-day immersive event that will transform the way you do business.We're transforming the way people think about creativity and business and in doing so, making an impact for the better on the world. We do this through our values - by embracing diversity, risk taking, creative thinking, sustainability and humanism. The C2 approach consists in developing a program that brings together forward looking insights in a unique environment to deliver a transformative experience. Participants are re-energised, re-tooled and ready to take action.
Inspiring and thought provoking talks
Inspiration from the world's top leaders
We find inspiration in the stories of those who have managed to flip an issue on its head and achieve positive change. Based on an overarching theme, C2 curates these stories and invites leaders across fields and sectors to share them with us.
Turning words into action
Inspiration is only the first step towards getting things done. After their talk, speakers step off the stage and into masterclasses, where participants work in small interdisciplinary groups to dig deeper into the content, try out new methodologies, and turn challenges into solutions.
Digging deeper into ideas
The workshops are where participants explore case studies and prototyping methodologies they can use to transform the way they tackle challenges back at the office. Held in smaller groups than masterclasses, the participants are able to connect with their peers and forge new relationships as they work on the issue at hand.
At the intersection of arts, humanities and social sciences, Labs are atypical brainstorming environments designed to take participants out of their usual frame of reference. Each Lab experience is designed as a metaphor for a business challenge (risk, uncertainty, talent, etc.) and challenges senses (sight, height, risk, noise saturation). The result: new ideas from shifted perceptions.
Meeting the right people
Through digital platforms and onsite matchmaking, participants connect with individuals they wouldn’t have otherwise met. These meet-ups can lead to specific learnings as well as new business opportunities.
An imaginarium to discover
Leaving your bias at the door
The space design is meant to create a break with reality, with hidden structures, art installations and an intricate attention to detail. Participants will be transported into a world that will re-energise them and constantly challenge their perceptions.
Expecting the unexpected
An important part of the energy comes from live performances – some announced, some unexpected – punctuate the event, sparking conversations and leaving participants wondering what will come next.
Showcasing local talent
Shining a light on the city’s best and brightest
Participants are invited to connect on a whole other level through a series of spectacle-filled evenings showcasing renowned and promising local artists and performers.
Art & technology exhibits
Exploring the intersection of art and business
To demonstrate the creative links between industry, technology and culture, the environment features carefully curated works by some of the most cutting edge innovators and tech projects from around the world.
