9:00 – 10:00 AM Flashes of Genius – Learning the Art and Science of Creativity

KEYNOTE – Allen Gannett, CEO of TrackMaven 

The talk is based on two years of research for Gannett’s upcoming book The Creative Curve (June 2018, Penguin Random House). As part of this, he interviewed dozens of the world’s leading creatives such as celebrity chefs, multi-platinum musicians, billionaire entrepreneurs, and fine artists. In addition, he talked to the leading scientists and academics who study the field.

Based on this, he found four patterns—The Four Laws of Creative Curve—that all creatives engage in. These laws are not only scientifically valid, but can be followed by any aspiring creative. This talk will give a sneak peek into Gannett’s research and an early look at how you can leverage it.

Key Takeaways:

  • You will learn the neurological and psychological mechanisms behind flashes of genius.
  • How you can learn to have more of these so-called aha moments through the mass consumption of content.
  • How famous creators engage in a strategy called “the 20% principle” that is accessible for anyone.
