See Cirque du Soleil CEO give ISE 2017 Closing Keynote9 February 2017
Don’t forget – you can still see the Closing Keynote of ISE 2017 at 9:00 this morning in the Forum – presented by Daniel Lamarre, the president and CEO of Cirque du Soleil.
The theme for his speech will be: How unlocking creativity and embracing new technology can grow your business.
Lamarre is responsible for Cirque du Soleil’s business and creative strategy. The company operates across five continents and is the world’s largest theatrical production company.
He commented: “My presentation’s main focus will be the importance of stimulating creativity, as a daily priority, in an organisation. For us, at Cirque du Soleil, we’re in ‘show business’ industry but the show comes first. There is an inherent need to nurture creativity throughout the company, from creating an inspiring working environment to harnessing your own employees’ creativity through various programmes, and even the art of identifying the right people at all levels.”

Cirque du Soleil has consistently shown how creative expression can benefit from the adoption of the latest audio-visual technologies when used to enhance and compliment a show’s key storylines.
