ZenithOptimedia has joined forces with Hyper Island to bring world-class digital training to Australia. ZenithOptimedia’s Chief Innovation Officer, Aaron Michie, has been working with Jaclyn Ciamillo, Global Partnership Director at Hyper Island since May this year to bring the Hyper Island Open Master Class to Australia. “It’s been nearly 3 years since Hyper Island has held an open session in Australia. Partnering with ZenithOptimedia was a crucial part in getting us to Sydney,” says Ciamillo.
Hyper Island is a world-leading educator in the fields of digital/interactive communication, business innovation and leadership. For more than 15 years, Hyper Island has been developing and providing training with their unique methodology. Hyper Island is headquartered in Stockholm/Karlskrona (Sweden), with offices in New York, Manchester, and Singapore. Through their Executive Programs, they help working individuals, consumer brands and advertising agencies build skills and knowledge to thrive in a changing digital world. Attendees will acquire knowledge that will support their growth in strategic thinking with a focus on digital, building stronger, more effective teams and idea generation.
As part of the partnership, ZenithOptimedia will be hosting a three-day long Hyper Island Open Master Class at its offices in The Rocks, Sydney from the 25-27 November. Participants will leave the 3-day course with a new perspective on the role that collaboration and group dynamics play in organizations due to transformative technology and its effect on the world. This process that they go through, will be done the ’Hyper Island Way’ which is based on methodical ways of experiential learning. Participants interact with speakers and facilitators that have current digital and/or leadership/business expertise, they apply a system of discussion, reflection and workshops in order to create solutions suitable for their own working context.
Aaron Michie, Chief Innovation Officer, ZenithOptimedia Worldwide said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Hyper Island to bring their Open Master Class to Sydney. We hope people from all sides of the industry take advantage of the opportunity to increase their digital acumen and go through what is a truly transformational programme. We certainly are.”
