2010 ConferenceSpeakers | Logistics
IdeaWave is the first “ideas conference” to be held on Vancouver Island. On July 10 and 11, 2010 hundreds of critical thinkers, from inventors to philanthropists, will come together to share ideas and engage each other in dialogue about ideas and their place in the world.
IdeaWave is a forum where critical thinkers are able to mix and mingle in a highly engaged environment.
Each day consists of a series of 25 talks, each 10 minutes in length. Talks are designed to be a snapshot of the idea and to open the door for discussion about the talk. There is no limit on subject matter and topics will range from business ideas to cultural ideas to lifestyle ideas.
Mayor Dean Fortin will welcome delegates to the conference and give a few remarks on the importance of ideas. (Greetings from the mayor (pdf))
Our Master of Ceremonies for the weekend will be popular Atomic Vaudeville actor and scientist Morgan Cranny. Morgan has been performing with Impromaniacs since 2001 and is an experienced MC who will bring some humour to the weekend while keeping the talks on schedule.
It will be hosted at the Ambrosia Conference and Event Centre in beautiful Victoria, BC, on Vancouver island.
