Returning to speak at the FUSE Design Confernce in 2016

fuse-logo-bigI am thrilled to announce that I will returning to speak at the FUSE design conference for a third time and this year I will be putting on 2 sessions! The conference will focus on how to connect brands and consumer which are two things I know a little about. I am also excited by the stellar line up of speakers at this years event and that I will be able to take the stage along with two of my creative idols – Designer Stefan Sagmeister and Author Todd Henry. My two session will be:

The Future of Digital Branding is Proactive Storytelling

Monday, April 4th
The digital landscape continues to get more fragmented as brands compete for consumer attention. I will teach strategies to break through the noise by creating proactive brand experiences that anticipate consumers’ needs.

The Crazy Ones: How to Be a Leader Who Inspires Creativity and Innovation

Wednesday, April 6th
Every company wants more creativity and innovation from its teams, but few understand how to create a culture that fosters leadership, drives innovation and delivers results. This session will provide tangible takeaways learned from first hand experience as well as working with senior teams at companies like Apple and Google to help you create greater creativity and a stronger culture within the same team you’re working with today.

The conference will take place April 4th through 6th at the Nobu Eden Roc hotel in Miami. You can learn more about the conference and buy your ticket here.
