Join Spark Live and Showcase Your Content!

The deadline for submission is July 25th, 2022.

Hello and thank you for your interest in making content with us!

Spark Live is where we produce all our live and recorded content for organizations. We cover a wide range of narrative themes each quarter so be on the lookout for areas that interest you. For Q3 2022, our narrative theme is "Proprietary & Open Source".

The democratization and increased accessibility of exponential technologies means that more people, leaders, organisations, and industries can innovate and experiment in directions and with technologies that were previously only accessible to a few. With this increase in accessibility and opportunity comes the need to innovate thoughtfully and responsibly.

One of the crucial distinctions in attitudes to innovation is deciding between doing so in a proprietary manner, or in an open source way. These attitudes to innovation represent a spectrum of thought and corporate philosophy behind how to position oneself in relation to one’s product, ones customers, and insights in general.
