01 Introduction

Taking the road less travelled.

Innovation is about blazing a trail, finding new paths and traversing obstacles. You may need to overcome inclines that seem insurmountable and it’s in these instances that the support of fellow climbers drives you to the summit.

Climbing together

Campus is an invite-only event organised by Kyan that brings those working in innovation, digital strategy and technology together. Theatre style talks, fireside chats and frank, open discussion are all key to this intimate quarterly gathering.
