The Tao of Happiness
A Harvard MBA, New York Times bestselling author (The Book of Awesome), award-winning blogger and one of the most popular TED talk speakers of all time, Neil Pasricha is a self-described “pied piper of happiness.” He spent a decade with Walmart, working directly for two CEOs as director of leadership development. And now he travels all over the world sharing thought-provoking messages about happiness with Fortune 500 companies, schools and non- profits. At Kidscreen Summit, Neil will draw on the latest research on his favorite subject to present ideas and strategies for leaders interested in increasing personal performance and creating more positive and productive teams.
Hitting the Finish Line Faster: Developing the Design Sprint way
Pioneered by New York Times bestselling author Jake Knapp during his time at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a one-week process for making development more efficient. For the past few years, AJ&Smart's Brittni Bowering has been using the model with teams at companies such as The Lego Company, Twitter, Lufthansa, HSBC and Adidas to quickly validate ideas for new products, organizational change, marketing campaigns and more. It’s also got lots of potential value for content development, so make sure you join us to find out more about it.
