April 26, 2021

Monday @5.30pm

Future Dreaming, a conversation with Dr David E Martin

July 20, 2021

Tuesday @6.00pm

Future Dreaming is a remarkable documentary that will challenge the way you think about humanity.

In 2015, ‘The Unstoppables’ took 120 of Australia’s top entrepreneurs on a floating think tank cruising around Antarctica with the sole purpose of creating and influencing a better future.

Whilst on the expedition, film director Kaya Finlayson recorded a conversation with the renowned thinker Dr David E Martin, to explore the narratives that drive our economic, social and political thinking and unpacks the assumptions that underlie those conditions.

Join us on Tuesday, July 20 at Olderfleet for a viewing of the documentary, hosted by co-founder of ‘The Unstoppables’ Geoff Gourley. Geoff is a leading Global Social Innovator, Entrepreneur, Impact Investor, NED and former Board member of the UN in Australia.

Six steps to a moonshot mindset

September 23, 2021

Thursday @5.00pm

This online event is free for all Work Club members. Use the code: FLORENCEGUILDXSU at the checkout.

From the impossible to the possible, ‘moonshot thinking’ has inspired innovation throughout history. To continue to create, we first need to imagine. Sometimes we even have to start over. Most organisations operate with a solid Unique Selling Proposition.

The brave organisations, the ones impacting lives on a global scale, Moonshot. So, set your mind to an impossible idea and use technology to bring it into reality. You need courage and persistence. You need to think big. Moonshot thinking is choosing to be bothered about how you can make it real. So think differently. Change things. Be the change. Be audacious. Find the way. Be unstoppable. Have impact.

Florence Guild & TEDx Melbourne: Democracy Event

March 23, 2022

Wednesday @5.00pm

Recently we’ve seen democracy take some wild and extraordinary turns.

With left and right politics looking more similar than different, it has allowed extreme politics and the vocal minority to hold the interest of the community. Whether we like it or not, it has forced us to think about democracy and wonder if it works in most countries.

Has traditional democracy become complacent? Are the needs of the people now too complex for democracy to truly understand the community’s needs and respond quickly?

We will ask the question – What IS democracy today and does it actually meet our needs?

Unity in the Age of Discord

April 12, 2022

Tuesday @5.30pm

In this TEDxCanberra Conversation, we will explore the theme: Unity in the age of discord. All through January and February, protesting groups descended on Canberra with views that couldn’t contrast more with those held by most who live in this city. The episode highlighted the dramatic gulf that exists today between different parts of Australia around key issues concerning our future.

As we approach the 2022 Federal Election, we invite you to explore with us in this latest edition of TEDxCanberra Conversations: how could we use the upcoming election to learn to agree and disagree constructively with each other again?
