Join us at the globally recognised International Conference on Thinking (ICOT).

Connect with international and local professionals, industry leaders, speakers and innovators. From keynote presentations to interactive workshops, each moment is an investment in your professional development.

Exchange ideas, collaborate, forge partnerships, and expand your network.

ICOT 2024 program aims to empower educators, business and creative professionals to provoke, challenge, learn, and discuss the many forms of thinking and their application, in creating new ideas and solving problems related to business and global challenges.

The theme of this year's Melbourne ICOT is: We are on the Edge of What?

If we accept that it’s part of living in our ever-changing world to expect the unexpected, how can this be reframed from challenges to opportunities?

With clear, critical, creative thinking, and sharing new ideas and putting them into action, a future for the greater good can be co-created!
