Wired for Wonder is an experience to prepare attendees for the future. We explore emerging trends and hear from incredible thought leaders. It is a creative and immersive experience designed to spark imagination and encourage curiosity for what lies ahead.
The world is changing at such a rapid pace, we humans must learn to master our mindset to cope with ambiguity and change. Wired for Wonder builds bridges of understand between seemingly disparate concepts and carefully crafts connections between them all. It is purposefully playful, creative and polarising to activate imagination and get attendees excited about learning.
The skills and ideas gained at Wired for Wonder apply to all areas of life such as work, family and social and help guide a positive and proactive life that attendees want to live.
At Wired for Wonder in 2018 we’ll explore the thematic of ‘evolve’. Our incredible speakers will challenge attendees to think about how and why we need to evolve and what the continuum of evolution across our pillars of technology, business, life, science, art and awe might look like in the future, and how best to thrive in this ever-evolving world.
A proud innovation of CommBank, Wired for Wonder features an impressive line-up of world-renowned speakers and immersive workshops to inspire businesses and individuals to embark on a journey of discovery and innovation.

Wired for Wonder takes you out of your day-to-day challenges and encourages you to stick your head up and understand what is coming around the corner for your business and your own professional development. Whether we are discussing the power of language or mindfulness, I am learning about people’s perspectives that have nothing to do with the work I do, but somehow remain insanely relevant

The experience is up there as two of the best days of my life. I actually can’t stop talking about it and recommending it to everyone I know. My mind has been blown and in the best way possible. As an entrepreneur, I can’t recommend Wired for Wonder enough. Get on the list for next year people because if it’s anything like this year, the experience will change you forever.

I talk to my executive clients about being vigilantly open to change or risk being overtaken. Wired for Wonder confirms my view that this is about taking calculated risks, stimulating creative thinking and providing tools, tips and tactics to implement a culture of innovation.
