Phil Hansen

Embrace the Shake: Why Limitations Drive Creativity

In art school, Phil Hansen developed an uncontrollable tremor in his hand that kept him from creating the pointillist drawings he loved. Phil was devastated, until a neurologist made a simple suggestion: embrace this limitation ... and transcend it. Phil will explain how embracing a limitation can actually drive creativity.

Check out this great TEDTalk by Phil Hansen:

 

Diana Nyad

Never, Ever Give Up

In her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad fulfilled her lifelong dream of swimming 110 miles from Cuba to Florida, taking 53 hours. Diana has three messages: "One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport but it takes a team.”

Hiring and the Referral Economy

As a pioneer in the mobile career industry, Alex Douzet has successfully led TheLadders to become a “mobile-first” company. Alex will share his thoughts on how job seekers are shifting the way they look for jobs, and how the referral economy will forever change the way we brand ourselves and our companies.
