It’s been an incredibly productive and rewarding month for our bustling little studio.
We had the very proud pleasure of welcoming Pause Fest into the raraPR fold. For those who haven’t come across this ridiculously important and inspiring three-day innovation festival, Pause Fest is the world’s leading creativity infused business event. And it happens here in Melbourne. Yep, our very own back-yard. Thanks to founder and director George Hedon who makes it all happen.
Creative passion collides as 2000 visionary seekers from every and any industry descend on Federation Square, NGV and ACMI to stop, pause and observe insights from over 270 leaders from around the world.
We welcomed key note speaking talent from Google, Nasa, WGSN, Airbnb, IBM and Amazon as well as too many local business heroes to mention (some including Rea Group, Headspace, The Taboo Group, General Assembly, The Happiness Concierge and How Two Live). Ideas you can’t yet find online were shared and actionable insights are discovered for those who attended.
In the words of Broadsheet Melbourne, ‘Pause Fest draws together some of the world’s brightest minds’. Topics and themes across the future of work, brands and marketing, transport and mobility, Influencer Marketing, motion and animation, design, health and well-being, smart future trends, start-ups and tech, education, science, film and TV were explored in-depth.
All in all it’s a very special, innovation-led project which brings different mindsets and skill-sets together to transfer knowledge that will take businesses further. What a month. What a client.
