There’s so much in store for you at CSW Global 2015, and we’re kicking it off on the Opening Night Gala (Monday)—a night of festivities, networking with other delegates, speakers and VIPs in Singapore. Give yourself a break with a few cocktails to warm up for the next day’s compact sessions. The Gala is invite only and complimentary for all Full Access Pass holders.

So, what happens when Business Meets Crowds? Here is a peek at the sessions happening on Tuesday, April 21, the day dedicated to this very topic:

Epi Ludvik Nekaj, founder & CEO of Crowdsourcing Week, will get the ball rolling with his opening remarks that elaborate on the billion dollar opportunity with crowds. If you have attended any of Epi’s presentations – you know Epi has a penchant for setting the tone for the day’s proceedings with acute observations and predictions. Sure to be a firecracker!

Sean Moffitt, Managing Director of Wikibrands and CSW2 is an eloquent speaker who will present Tuesday’s not-to-be-missed keynote. He’ll be sharing results from our 2nd annual Crowd Economy survey covering: key trends and 2014-15 developments, best practices, industry beliefs and predictions, top crowd economy growth sectors, industries most vulnerable to disruption and induction of 3 more organizations into our CSW Hall of Fame. Along the way, Sean will passionately present the case for an expanded view of what the crowd economy and crowdsourcing comprises and why large organizations, governments, not-for-profits, innovators and change agents can not avoid tapping into its benefits any longer.

The power of the crowd trumps the ideas of isolation according to Will Merritt of Zooppa and he’ll discuss more of this premise during his talk.

Learn to drive successful change at your large organization through crowdsourcing and co-creation dialogues. Synthetron CEO Joanne Celens will outline seven key success factors and the top five do’s and don’ts.
