IN A WORLD CONSUMED WITH IDEAS, the challenge is to develop, support, and create ideas that will stand out from the rest and work potently to help companies grow. The idea is the easy part; driving business forward isn't so simple. We believe that it's creativity that ultimately determines how powerful an idea can be and for this reason we are hosting the Influx Creativity Conference on October 15 to examine and explore creativity from a variety of angles. We have an impressive lineup of speakers that includes artists, innovators, creators, and idea champions, each of whom has been responsible for the development of break through concepts.
