Let us celebrate the power of creative thinking
To escape the humdrum of the COVID-19 pandemic there is even more need for optimism that can lead to new creativity and new energy. Creativity generates the necessary energy to innovate. Without creativity, there is no innovation. Without innovation, impact does not exist. Without sustainable positive impact, a society, its people, and the environment they live in, cannot prosper.
Creativity needs meaningful connections. Creativity feeds on collaboration. The power of creativity is fuelled by people. Inspiration, different ways of thinking, vision, entrepreneurship, craftmanship, and ground-breaking scientific thinking lead to solutions to societal, economic, political, or social problems.
Creativity is the key to a positive sustainable impact on people, society, and the environment.
Our events and activities are always aimed at connecting people to generate this impact. In 2021, we will organise the most impactful event the Czech Republic will see: The Creative Heroes Award event. This prestigious international event will be the start of a programme that will also include an Accelerator Programme by Impact Hub and a Creative Heroes Pavilion during the Future Port Prague Event & Exhibition. The Creative Heroes Award event will take place at the ŠKODA AUTO Museum Conference Premises in Mladá Boleslav on 24 June 2021.
Join us on our journey towards sustainable positive impact on people, society, and the environment. You can nominate potential creative heroes, buy a single ticket to, or even better, a table, at the event or increase your association and visibility by becoming a Creative Heroes Award Partner.
The NCCC Traders by Nature wish you good health, a safe and heart-warming festive season and lots of creativity in 2021.

This is not a company documentary nor a sales pitch; the (expected) sustainable positive impact of the innovation will be leading in the story.

In this first TIIM, Oldřich Šil, CEO Integrated Retail Solutions will introduce the topic Digitalised Food Safety. He will be followed by Blake Wittman, European Business Director GoodCall, with Redefining recruitment - Rent to Hire. Last but not least, Robert Nešpůrek and Dalibor Kovář of Havel & Partners will share their Best practice in using digital signatures in the Czech Republic.
