IdeaSquared November will feature Kerry Topp, Associate Director of Innovation and Transformation at Datacom. Kerry is passionate about creating networks and neighbourhoods of innovation, fostering positive change in regions around New Zealand.

Kerry has been instrumental in the development of the Nelson Tasman Innovation Neighbourhood (NTIN) - a group of local businesses, education providers and non-profits - who are collaborating to tackle shared business challenges and identify common opportunities. Kerry will share lessons from this and similar journeys, to spark our thinking about how Waikato businesses might collaborate for the betterment of all.

IdeaSquared November will also host a fast-fire panel, with leaders in business and NFPs reflecting on Kerry's insights – and sharing how they are setting their organisations up for future flourishing.
