Ranging from diverse sectors such as information protection, participatory community and African drumbeats – 7 speakers with 7 minutes each to deliver a concentrated mix of new ideas, success stories and provocations. Restarting in march 2016 7×7 is now run every 7 weeks in the Capital – here is your opportunity to gain awareness of Wellington’s stealth innovators and connect with thought leaders from a wide range of the city’s sectors.

Shining spotlights into the shadows and highlighting Wellington’s hidden talent, 7×7 is about generosity and our ability to help each other shine.

Innovation is both cultural and contextual, and Wellington has a unique position as one of New Zealand’s innovation engines. It is for everyone to discover, enjoy and participate.

THE HISTORY

7×7 was launched in 2000 with a focus on technology, entertainment and design. Brian Sweeney, Chairman of international communications consultancy, SweeneyVesty was inspired when he saw a speaker receive a standing ovation after delivering a 7-minute presentation at a TED Conference. Together with filmmaker Jan Bieringa he developed the forum. After an eight-year hiatus 7×7 has returned to Wellington, starting in March 2016 to deliver a concentrated mix of new ideas, success stories and provocations.
