Speakers in Focus: Lyn Heward and David Buckland
Looking for the creative spark and zeal for innovation that, in today's business climate, can mean the difference between success and failure? Want insight into building a team of innovators from one the most creative companies in the world? Lyn Heward, Cirque do Soleil’s Creative Director and Executive Producer, has managed the creative fire behind much of the company's fabled history, guiding its designers, performers, and technicians into the breathtakingly original artistic and commercial juggernaut it is today.

Life on earth exists because we have a totally unique life-giving atmosphere, which currently we use as a dumping ground for all of our waste. When internationally renowned photographer, filmmaker and designer David Buckland realized that climate scientists couldn't get people to listen to them because they were talking in graphs and data, he started the Cape Farewell project. Find out how Buckland uses collaboration across widely divergent sectors to turn this green bug into a virus that reaches out and virally inspires others to action.
