Executive Producers - Suzi Jamil and Desh Amila
Suzi and Desh are the founders of Think Inc. a young, Australia-based initiative dedicated - quite simply - to the promotion of intellectual discourse via world-class events. Think Inc. was brought to life from a desire to challenge intellectual comfort, and a thirst for democratising the dialogue between society's innovators and the people who benefit from them. It is a platform to promote big ideas, stimulate and engage independent, rational thinking, and celebrate scientific discovery. Think Inc. has hosted thinkers like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Steve Wozniak, Edward Snowden, Brian Greene and more.
