Those of you attending ForeSee Summit are in for a real treat, as we’ve tapped educator, book author and business leader Adam Grant as this year’s keynote speaker. In addition to his time as a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Grant has published two books: Give and Take, in which he examines how helping others is central to driving your own success, and more recently, Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World, where he explores how individuals champion new ideas and leaders fight against groupthink.
Not only has the latter book already hit bestseller lists across the globe, but it’s also received generous praise from a slew of influential people, including director JJ Abrams, Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, famed marketer and thought leader Seth Godin, and seasoned technology entrepreneur/investor Peter Thiel.
In preparation as you make your way to the event, we’d like to suggest watching Grant’s most recent TED Talk (embedded above) “The Surprising Habits of Original Thinkers.”
Make sure you don’t miss Grant’s keynote presentation at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 4, which will kick off the main stage general session that day.Categories: Uncategorized
