Go MAD Thinking take to the stage on Saturday 19th May at the International Conference on Thinking

Go MAD's Andy Gilbert presents our 'Light Bulb Moment vision' at the International Conference on Thinking


The International Conference on Thinking (ICOT) will take place in Miami, from 16th - 20th May 2018, and is hosted by Florida International University.


The International Conferences on Thinking are offered every two to three years in different parts of the world. The series was founded 34 years ago by the University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji.


Speakers this year include;

  • Edward de Bono - famous physician, psychologist, philosopher, author and inventor.

  • Dr David Perkins - Research Professor at Harvard University, founding member of Harvard Zero Project and author.

  • Dr Arthur Costa - Co-founder of the center for Cognitive Coaching in El Dorado Hills, California, multiple international award-winner and author.

  • Mary Helen Immordino-Yang - President of the International Mind, Brain and Education Society.

  • Howard Gardner - Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, honorary degress from 31 colleges and universities and author of over 30 books translated into 32 languages.


ICOT fosters collegial exchange and educational development around the topic of thinking and its cultivation. Thinking is understood broadly to include any kind of thinking and learning and to acknowledge cultural, psychological, historical, and disciplinary diversity and richness.

The conference is transdisciplinary, drawing from diverse fields including education, neuroscience, health sciences, the arts, sports, government, business, anthropology, history, cross-cultural studies, architecture, engineering, economics, geography, technology and other areas.


Andy is one of the closing speakers on Saturday 19th May at the International Conference on Thinking and will present our 'Light Bulb Moment vision'.

Here is a taster of what he'll be describing from stage:


In his session, to help stimulate thinking, Andy will introduce the Go MAD Thinking Cards.
Members of the audience will team up to create the most impact and valuable cards games to inspire Light Bulb Moments for each other. These Light Bulb Moments, or breakthroughs in thinking, could be a brand new idea, sudden realisation or moment of clarity.
During the session hundreds of ideas for thought-provoking card games will be generated and turned into an e-book for participants.
