Hi <<First Name>>,
The crap was mercilessly cut at the wonderful Spotify HQ on Jan 30, and indeed the music sounded better with you! Thanks to everyone who made it. If you didn't, we'll see you next time! Carving your own path and challenging the conventional view went hand in hand with our brilliant speakers Tom Goodwin (Publicis), Anush Prabhu (MediaCom) and Xavier Jernigan (Spotify). A HUGE thank you to our wonderful friends at Spotify for graciously hosting us in their space. They blew us away with their generosity.
The professional pics have landed, and you look great, take a look at your fine self here.
Our goal was to help you separate BS from brilliant in 2020. So to that end, we asked the speakers, what's your advice on how our attendees can cut the crap and focus on what matters in 2020. Here's what they said!
Advice from Tom Goodwin:
1) Never lose sight of perspective. What really matters. Most of the time we get too close to stuff. We ALWAYS get too close to our worlds and forget our customer/consumers/bosses etc
2) Know when to be fast and when to be slow. The modern world defaults to fast. Everything should be slow unless there is a reason for it to be fast. Often in that time needs vanish, change, ideas come together, it saves a lot of time.
3) Trust your own judgment (unless you've a strong history of being shit at it, in that case, get another job)
4) Assume that humans are animals that look fancy. Think about our primal needs and basic instincts more than the nonsense we wear on top.
5) By skeptic not cynical, be optimistic, be naive.
6) Look at the below image once per month or week or day. We have silly jobs. We are lucky we get to get paid a living wage doing something non critical.
