Register for the conference Crea16_web_seit_poga_en.png

It is no secret that the modern-day economy is no longer based on classical principles – change is inevitable. For the second straight year the conference will serve as a meeting point for anyone who wishes to accept the possibilities offered by the new age. It will be an opportunity to hear 20 outstanding lecturers tell their stories on how they have managed to oppose all of the people who have said “no one does it like that” or “it will not work” and take risks.


Everything starts with a thought, an idea. Moreover, a creative personality is essential in the modern age. While listening to the stories of the lecturers, we will look for answers regarding the factors that influence our thinking, and how the decisions we make shape our identity.


A specific place does not only adjust itself to our needs, but it also presents certain rules that we have to conform to. We will consider various challenges that the city environment is currently presenting. But what will it offer in 5, 10 or 50 years?


Although an idea might be brilliant, it can exist only if it is materialised, thus crossing the boundary from “thinking” to “acting”. You will hear stories about how good ideas can be transformed into commercially successful products, and that the boundaries of industries are no longer unsurpassable.


Whether it is a client, partner, or a competitor, there is a certain person at the centre of any activity, which is why the lecturers will share their experience on how to reach a person within an age that is oversaturated with information, how to create a following, and how to work in a team.


The conference will gather personalities recognised in Latvia and abroad – lecturers who will try to find answers to questions asked by creative people by using their prism of experience, as well as ask questions, to which each of us should answer ourselves.
