Cannes In Cairns is Calling Doctor, Doctor!

It wouldn’t be a Cannes in Cairns-related article without a speaker update, and we’ve got two big names to add to the list!

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki – Australia’s favourite clever person 

Who? 

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki has the answers for all things science and technology. His enthusiasm is infectious, and no one can better convey the excitement and wonder of it all than him.

Locally, Dr Karl holds both the esteemed “Order of Australia” (2006) and the even cooler “Australia’s Father of the Year” (2003). On a global scale, some of his accolades include the prestigious Ig Nobel prize he received in 2022 for his ground-breaking research into “Belly Button Lint and why it is almost always blue”.

What’s he doing in Cairns? 

Dr Karl’s mission to make us smarter continues in Cairns with his spiel on the psychology of advertising, i.e. how the f*ck do you get audiences to care?
