Really pleased to say that hot on the heels of our first ever Google Firestarters in New York there will be a second event on 22nd January at 5.30pm, Google HQ NYC. This one will be taking 'Creativity in a Constrained World' as its theme, focusing on some of the topics explored on Adam Morgan's new book A Beautiful Constraint. Adam will be speaking (I saw Adam speak at the APG's Big Thinking conference and he was excellent) alongside his founding partner at EatBigFish Mark Barden.
The book, and the event, will be considering how, in a world of super-abundance of choices and connections yet scarcity of time and often resources, the way in which we respond to these constraints is becoming an increasingly important determining factor to the success of businesses, and our success as people. There will also be input from Porter Gale (former VP Marketing, Virgin America), Dr. Louise Waters (CEO, Leadership in Public Schools), and Tom Marchant (Co-founder of The Black Tomato Group)
Sadly I'll not be at this one but it will be very ably moderated on the night by Ben Malbon (Ben's write up of our last event is also up on Think with Google, and worth a read) and it's bound to be a fascinating evening. As always I have some guest passes to give away to readers of this blog so if you're a planner, will be in NYC and want to go, you can request an invite here.
