We provoke thought.
We encourage convergent and divergent thinking.
This year we will explore in and out.
We will move beyond the boundaries.
Inside and out.
Intrinsic and extrinsic.
Inner and outer.
Inside our minds, outside our worlds.
Inside ourselves, outside the lines.
Take a look inside, are things what they appeared on the outside?
Take a look outside, what discoveries are impacting you.
Come and discover.
We will again bring together storytellers, dreamers, doers, artists, musicians, technologists, writers, scientists – to learn, to grow, to connect dots in different ways.
We will explore the concept of in and out across technology, life, business, science and awe.
Come wonder with us.

After dancing the night away the guests boarded their private ferry back to the city regaling that it was “the best wedding they had ever attended”.
“It was surprisingly difficult for us to find a catering company that would serve food in the style we wanted – a banquet at each table. Luckily for us we came across Laura and the team at Forte who could not only offer what we were after but did an amazing job of it. We were able to select from a huge range of food to create a menu that suited us and our guests tastes. On the actual day everything went off without a hitch and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The service was unreal, the booze was cold and the food was phenomenal. Since our wedding we have had lots of our guests tell us it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Thanks again to Laura and her team, I would highly recommend Forte to anyone with hungry guests to feed!” – Michael McQueen
