Some of the world’s leading thinkers in various disciplines ranging from education, business, arts and culture to health and medicine, science, engineering, sustainability and media and entertainment will gather in Kuala Lumpur this year to address the various areas of thinking for the benefit of mankind.

The likes of Edward de Bono, Tony Buzan and Howard Gardner are among the main speakers of the 14th International Conference on Thinking (ICOT) to be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) from 22 to 26 June 2009.

After a 12-year hiatus, this major international event on the thought process will return to South East Asia, marking only the second time an Asian country has been chosen to play host.

Themed “Thinking Minds: Nurturing the Design of a Better Future”, the biennial conference to be hosted by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) will bring together over 2,000 delegates and will showcase best practices in thinking strategies from around the world and promote effective thinking and communications across various disciplines.

According to the Convenor of the 14th ICOT, Associate Professor Dr. Shameem Galea, the 14th ICOT is a conference for everyone. “The conference welcomes all who are interested in understanding what ‘thinking’ is all about and what is effective thinking. Participants will have the opportunity to meet international cutting-edge thinkers, leaders, researchers and practitioners from various disciplines.

Elaborating, Dr. Shameem said, “The conference will provide a forum for participants to learn how to develop the creative potential of individuals and how to enhance and develop a culture which can inspire original thought, creativity and innovation.”

Speaking on behalf of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, General Manager Peter Brokenshire said, “We are delighted to be able to mark our fourth anniversary by welcoming another high profile educational event to the Centre. It will indeed be stimulating to have the world’s renowned thinkers in one place at the same time.“

ICOT boasts a 22-year history and is coordinated by an International Standing Committee led by Professor Dr. David Perkins of Harvard University, USA. Members of the public are welcome to participate in the 14th ICOT.
