Slavica Habjanović

HASSELL, Communications Manager Kina i Hong Kong (Kina i Hong Kong)

Slavica Habjanovic is Communications Manager for leading international design practice HASSELL. Part of the practice’s global communications team for over five years, she recently moved from Australia to Hong Kong to focus on the rapidly changing urban centres of Asia. With a strong grasp of the global trends that are shaping our everyday lives, Slavica’s work exposes her to the forefront of urban design thinking and the factors that are contributing to global-scale change around us. The increasingly complex projects that clients bring to HASSELL demand a culture built on collaboration, creativity and innovation in design thinking and delivery, carried out by integrated teams of architects, interior designers, landscape architects, urban designers and specialist consultants. And nowhere is this complexity more evident than in the accelerated urbanisation of Asia, in particular China. Aside from her work at HASSELL, she is also a contributor to Fluoro Digital, the Croatian Herald, an advisor for music start up Booker Garden and the founder of colour communications platform Tribe:Color. She has also held a number of communications and founder roles in media, design, culture and social and environmental advocacy. Slavica holds a Bachelor of Sociology and English from the University of Zagreb, and a Masters in Communications and Publishing from the University of Melbourne.

Megatrends Shaking The Cities We Live In And Why We Should Care

At the current rate of urbanisation, by 2050 the world will be two-thirds urban and one-third rural and most of this growth will take place in Asia and Africa. But cities all over the world are experiencing unprecedented change and facing both challenges and opportunities like never before. They are also rising in influence with predictions stating that cities will become just as powerful, if not more, than countries. All of us will be impacted by the megatrends that are shaping the cities we live in and their future forms. Across the planet, we are seeing some powerful common threads and mind-blowing examples of how cities and the teams of people that design them are working to solve their challenges. In this workshop, we’ll explore these global trends and how they are relevant to our industries and what sort of opportunities they could provide. We bring it back to the region to see what’s happening here too.

IBM Design Thinking

powered by IBM i Megatrend

Everyone is talking about the Design thinking methodology, but do you really know what the application of such methodology looks like in real life, a methodology meant for the right client with real demands and challenges? Come to the IBM Design Thinking workshop where we will show you how to create an improved user experience custom made for the Weekend Media Festival. Data shows that 75% of what we hear we can truly learn if we really practice it. Consequently, we will present the “Designing the Wimbledon experience” story where our colleagues from IBM US literally made a miracle by applying predictive analytics. Join us, let’s roll up our sleeves and lets draw, create, make new concepts using the experience of others and relying on our own ideas.

Fun is guaranteed!

Possible side effects: as with other medicine, our workshop can cause side effects, although they do not occur at the same time for all. These side effects are visible only if you are taking a methodology for more than three consecutive days – large encounters of creativity may occur, as well as a need to address problems and the desire for collaboration and creating innovation.

IBM Design Thinking is used by numerous companies from various industries and even public administrations around the world in order to find better and more innovative solutions in a dynamic environment in which we operate, live and work and where traditional methods and tools cannot give the expected results. See you!

Croatian Telecom as a Start Up Accelerator

powered by Hrvatski Telekom

Even though Croatian Telecom is mostly known as Croatia’s largest telecommunications operator, this is also a company that is engaged in many other activities – for example, they sell electricity and even help creative students and start-ups in the realization of their ideas. HT’s STEM HUB, HT Innovation Camp, hackathon and a general sponsorship of the prestige Idea Knockout competition in cooperation with Bug tech magazine are only some of the activities with which Croatian Telecom formats the restless ideas of juvenile creators. Considering the fact that one of the main prizes of the game is a trip to Las Vegas, then the best question for this lecture is – how?

The New Era of Marketing: How Can Technology Make You More Successful in Your Job?

powered by SAP

Evolution is transforming marketing into an increasingly technical function. This happened because of the predominance of digital channels in high volumes of business as opposed to being just a channel of communication. In the process, big data – huge amounts of information that marketing organizations gathered from consumers across all interaction points – provided additional tools for marketing in order to add value in using digital channels. This was further reinforced by improved capabilities in experienced management technologies that enabled contextually relevant communications and interactions and mass personalization. This session will explore how exactly can technology help marketing functions to perform better; what the leading brands are doing and why a scientific approach is needed in creating a new era of advertising.  As marketing is tasked to simultaneously inform and inspire, technology is here to help do it with ease and impact. See it live!

According to the publisher, Profil Knjiga, the collection brings reports and stories about interesting locations described in an unconventional and very personal manner. It can be found in bookstores starting September 13th and its first promotion will be at the Weekend Media Festival.

Body@work – A Wholesome Approach to Health in the Workplace

Many hours spent in front of a computer and long-term sitting tend to cause stiffness and pain in the neck and back area. By conducting targeted exercises for the neck, back and shoulders, the Body@work program helps to reduce the harmful effect that the workspace has on our health. With just 15 minutes of daily exercise we can revive and unburden our muscle groups that suffer the most at the work table as well as increase productivity, motivation and feel much better in general. How to sit properly, how to have a proper posture, which angle is best for computer use….all this and more will be told by Ana-Marija Jagodić Rukavina, mr.spec. of Kinesiology and founder of the PBS center.
