Innovation seen through the eyes of athletes, astronauts and pirates
20 July 2018

What’s it like to design a cushion for Nike Air, or work on the Mars space mission, or create a children’s storybook about a pirate that can test whether a child can see?  You can find out about these things and more at this year’s YiA Innovation Forum, hosted by Priority One.  The line-up of speakers includes ex-NASA aerospace engineer and current Silicon Valley CEO, Sinead O’Sullivan; Nike’s innovation developer and ex Tauranga Boys’ College student, Wade Flanagan;  and brand innovation guru and managing director of TBWA Group, Catherine Harris.  The YiA Forum is being held from 7am-9.30am on Thursday 10 August at Classic Flyers.  There are only 100 tickets available, so visit to purchase tickets.
