CACC presents the C2 EXPERIENCE!

C2 have reinvented how we experience conferences. CACC are delighted to partner with this Canadian organisation to explore the questions of disruption and innovation. This is a panel discussion, but not as you know it. You will experience a taster of the innovative approach that C2 have created to challenge our assumptions of the corporate event. You will be involved; not as a passive observer, but as a part of the dialogue.

Opportunity resides in uncertainty - a conversation about the importance of innovation and embracing disruption in the midst of the 4th industrial e-revolution.

C2’s "raison d'être" is to transform the way people think about the role of creativity in business. And in turn, how this creativity leads to innovative, actionable ideas to meet the ever changing challenges of modern times. In this exclusive breakfast event tailored for CACC members and Melbourne business community we explore trends, opportunities, disruptions and major shifts on the horizon.

C2 designs the perfect playground for reinvented collaborations. Participants from diverse industries and disciplines come out feeling re-energised and retooled to take on what’s coming next.

We encourage you to register for this event if you are looking for a new way to network, engage and explore ideas that will make a difference in your working world.


5:30PM - Check-In/Networking (canapes/beverages served)

6:10PM - Experiential Panel Discussion
