Conference Of Crazy Ideas (COCI), themed “rethinking the thought” aims to create an avenue where ideas that will trigger our ability to think critically will be talked about by brilliant minds from different fields. We expect that these innovative and transforming ideas discussed will have the potential to impact on lives and government positively by proffering entirely different approaches to the conventional methods we are used to.
COCI allows for topics from various fields be talked about, which include but are not limited to, sustainable economic growth, climate change issues, innovation and entrepreneurship, social injustice, technology in industrialization and production, education and governmental reforms, diagnosing infectious diseases and providing vaccines, efficiently feeding the planet, and Pan Africanism.
Digital Development hub designed a mechanism for choosing people that speak at the conference. An online form is available on our site for interested persons to fill. Interested speakers are carefully screened and the best one-fourth of the applicants are accepted. Another category of speakers come from experienced and intellectual people of renowned reputation, who DDHub will personally scout for and invite to speak at the conference.
We strongly believe COCI is going to be an integral part of our developing society because through COCI –
- A data bank of intriguing Ideas from which individuals, agencies, parastatals or organizations will immensely benefit, and will lead to innovation and improvement in their various fields;
- How businesses operate, or the type of product it produces will be fundamentally changed. This will lead to cost savings, increase the organization’s productivity, efficiency, and customer satisfaction;
- There will be the development and implementation of totally new products, or the identification of new and distinctly different markets;
- The way people live and think and will be impacted on positively and by extension lead to societal development.
