ALLEN GANNETT is the founder and CEO of TrackMaven, a marketing analytics platform whose clients have included Microsoft, Marriott, Saks Fifth Avenue, Home Depot, Aetna, Honda, and GE.
He has been on the “30 Under 30” lists for both Inc. and Forbes. He is a contributor for FastCompany.com and has an upcoming book The Creative Curve, on how anyone can achieve moments of creative genius, coming out in June 2018 from Currency, a division of Penguin Random House.
He was also once a very pitiful runner-up on Wheel of Fortune.
The standard view of creativity is one of constant brainstorming punctuated by sudden flashes of genius - it is not something you can be intentional or methodical about. This talk will disprove this, explain how flashes of genius actually happen and provide ways any creator can increase their odds of having one.
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.
- 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.
