Leadership for Innovation:
The Runway Show
DEDICATED TO UNLIKELY LEADER
"Leadership for Innovation: The Runway Show" was an invitation to step into a world where the concept of leadership is reimagined through the lens of fashion, art, and storytelling.
The runway wasn't just a physical space - it was an immersive experience that brought to life the complexities of leading innovative, progressive, and avant-garde teams. Using the concept of a fashion show, we communicated our message in a way that was tangible, visual, and emotionally evocative.
AUGUST 16th 2022 IMPACT HUB BELGRADE
Through the story of Sapfo - a misfit, visionary, and avant-garde leader inspired by real impact makers - we explored six crucial aspects of leadership that are often overlooked in conventional leadership concepts. From the problem with oversimplification to the value of neuroatypical individuals, we highlighted the nuances of leading innovation and provided a new perspective on what it takes to lead meaningful innovation. Our audience commented on how the show articulated thoughts they had been grappling with for years. "Finally someone who articulated what has been going through my mind for years, but I could never quite catch it." "This was way better than I could imagine it during the organization phase, I am blown away by the emotions that each act put me through." Act five, which focused on the value of neuroatypical individuals, struck a particular chord with one attendee who said: "It was so disturbing and at the same time so precisely what I experience as a leader." And the excerpts from Branka Copic's book - a tribute to our belated friend and polymath leader - had attendees on the edge of their seats: "It caused goosebumps, I cannot believe how everything fits and makes so much sense." The event was a testament to the power of collaboration, with over 25 people actively involved in its execution. Every detail, from the venue to the models to the choreography, was carefully imagined and intentional. And the result was a truly original work that was only possible through co-creation. As an attendee put it, "I wanted it to last longer, there is so much depth, I needed more time to let it sink." And that's exactly what we hope to achieve with our brand - to challenge conventional thinking and provide a new perspective on what it means to be a leader in the world we live in.
Leadership for Innovation
Is a Different Game
Leadership for Innovation: The Runway Show event was also a testament to the power of genuine narrative in modern leadership. In today's ever evolving business landscape, the ability of a leader to produce and communicate a compelling narrative relevant to their organization's innovation trajectory is essential. This is why the event was designed to be an immersive experience that not only entertained but also educated and inspired the audience. The runway and fashion concept were inspired by the idea that the line of the runway is a statement, and it was a tangible and visible space to visually communicate complex ideas. In the same way, the event was designed to showcase how innovative leaders can use narrative and storytelling to communicate complex ideas and inspire their teams. The art pieces created by Danijela Jonovic, a talented jewelry designer were carefully conceptualized to reflect the six important aspects of leadership for innovation, and the models' choreography and artistic expressions were designed to bring those ideas to life. The white eyebrows for makeup were chosen to convey a sense of otherworldliness, reflecting the unconventional and avant-garde nature of innovative leaders. Moreover, the music and voiceover played a crucial role in creating an immersive atmosphere that drew the audience in and engaged them emotionally. The event was a focused and intentional collaboration between a diverse team of professionals, who worked together to create an experience that was not only entertaining but also educational and inspiring.
