Applied Innovation: The Value of Showing, not telling

The Hunter is on the crest of a transition that will reshape the way that we live, interact and do business.

Right now, we have the perfect opportunity to build on the region's natural competitive advantages, exploit its depth of research talent and leverage these ingredients to shape our region into one that can be renowned for its innovation excellence.

With weekly Radio shows in Australia and in the UK on the BBC, regular television appearances, and 45 published books, Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki is the man with the answers when it comes to Science and Technology. On the night Dr. Karl will discuss the value of demonstrating applied innovation as the key tool in convincing people of what's possible, and why acting now is more important than ever.

A panel of local innovators will join Dr. Karl to explore why it's important to demonstrate applied innovation across a broad spectrum of fields, the barriers to participating in innovation for many, and why they've chosen Newcastle to base their innovation practice.

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki appears by arrangement with Claxton Speakers International.
