2015 Applied Brilliance Conference
NEW DATES: April 20+21, 2015

International House Hotel, New Orleans

Applied Brilliance is a journey into imagination and innovation. An exploration of what inspires us, frightens us, intrigues us and moves us. It's a discovery of ideas, places and spaces that are defining the cultural conversation. We identify emerging trends. We debate critical cultural shifts. We uncover what's hidden in plain sight. And we celebrate the original work that is changing our global society. Applied Brilliance is a fresh conversation that reveals how, when brilliance is applied, we have the will and the power to shift how we think, feel and behave. Our annual conference is devoted to learning, invention, creativity, and imagination. Applied Brilliance promises to make you part of the process. The program is designed to connect you with brilliant presenters; engage you in interactive dialogues, and propel you into the future. We also produce one-day events and Salons - all designed to expand the Applied Brilliance experience locally. Applied Brilliance: Stimulation. Revelation. Jubilation. If you want to know what's next, you need to be part of our conversation.

Applied Brilliance reveals the most important emerging trends through the filter of brilliant thought leaders ranging from poets, philosophers and economists, to scientists, artists and futurists. They make sense of the complexity we face every day and untangle the mysteries of some of the most challenging questions of our interconnected global society. Through a systems-thinking approach, speakers and attendees engage in spontaneous, interactive dialogue problem-solving exercises that investigate, question, and reveal solutions to some of our most interesting life-design problems.

Brilliance is not didactic. Attendees work together in a series of interactive problem-solving exercises alongside their peers and presenters to contribute to cross-disciplinary solutions. You will experience brilliance applied and in action as our presenters find solutions in unrehearsed case studies. Brilliance is designed as live theater, providing the opportunity to be awed, challenged, entertained, dazzled and ultimately, transformed. Applied Brilliance is dedicated to transforming ideas into life events that serve people.
