“Convergent Thinking” is the ability to bring material from a variety of sources to bear on a problem in such a way as to produce an answer in a sometimes unconventional, under–‐estimated or creative way. This kind of thinking is particularly appropriate in science, math and technology.

And in that spirit, we launch ConvergX, a conference based on the ethos of collaboration, synergy and partnership. The vision of Kimberley Van Vliet of WaVv Enhanced Business Development Solutions with the help of Louise Mercier of FMJ Solutions, is for real business to occur in two exciting, informative and enlightening days.

We sincerely hope you can join us.
