About Hyper Island

20 years of Tomorrow

You can probably tie most of our major progress as a civilization to some form of technological innovation in our entire history. What seems old now were once innovative breakthroughs back in their heydays.

Revolution and disruptions come in waves when the world needs it. Nothing is new. Society, individuals and businesses rise and fall accordingly to how well they anticipate or adapt to these changes. Many disruptions are often just new innovative ways of solving old problems.

Innovations are a result of original thinkings, and originality comes from the ability to think differently, which is strongly linked to creativity. Here we don’t believe that creativity is a fixed inherent trait. The crucial part is if the individual or organization is in the right mindset, and if they are equipped with the right methods and tools needed to unlock their full potential.

For all that to happen, companies and individuals first need to step away from assembly-line thinking and gain a deep understanding into how creativity works, what is needed for it to thrive before and being able to apply it to their work effectively.

By using a set of methodology that focuses on the why as much as the how and the what, on team collaboration instead of individual effort, we challenge participants to grow personally and professionally. We introduce new ways of thinking and learning for participants to develop themselves into lifelong learners.
