    Event description

    Learn. Innovate. Connect.

    Unbound and Global Ideas are proud to present Intersect 2019: a celebration of social innovation and entrepreneurship to inspire action for healthier lives, communities and our planet. 

    Intersect brings together Australia’s leading and emerging social change innovators for an intense day of entrepreneurship, global thinking and turning ideas into action. 

    If you are a health worker, designer, entrepreneur or impact investor, Intersect is for you. If you care about health, equity, or the state of the planet, Intersect is for you. Intersect is the place where great minds collide.

    Over the course of a single day you will:


    Learn how to take your idea, business or product to the next level


    Build the skills to lead awesome teams


    Be inspired to create a career for purpose


    Collaborate in practical workshops and interactive sessions


    Network with Melbourne's brightest innovators

    Breaking the mould of traditional conferences, this forum is all about DOING, rather than being another talk-fest.

    There will then be four diverse conversation streams throughout the day for attendees to check in and participate. This year Global Ideas will bring a specific health focus and showcase organisations making a big impact both on health locally and internationally. We will also feature an Unconference style session where we hand the facilitation over to you - the experts in the room. Self-nominated participants will be invited to lead a mini-workshop to share their own ideas, knowledge and experiences with other participants. Do you have a unique workshop you’d like to offer, or an exciting idea you want build a movement around? Get in touch with the organisers and we can make it happen. This is one not to be missed!
