Keynote Speakers

Itamar Kubovy

Executive Producer

Pilobolus

Monday, February 12, 9:15 am–11:15 am

Moving Pieces

Itamar Kubovy, executive producer of the acclaimed dance company Pilobolus, has created performances with such diverse collaborators as the MIT Distributed Robotics Lab, the band OK Go, masters of illusion Penn & Teller, and Britney Spears. Discover how this unorthodox dance company is helping organizations apply their process of group design thinking to solve business challenges. As Kubovy notes, “The most important part of our training is untraining, figuring out what assumptions and habits people bring to the professional table that shut down communication and impactful collaboration. Unlearning is the key to a competitive advantage in the workforce.”

 

 

Mimi Onuoha

New Media Artist and Researcher

Monday, February 12, 9:15 am–11:15 am

Missing Links

Mimi Onuoha is a new media artist and researcher whose work–which spans digital and physical media–uses data analysis, programming, writing, and sculptures to explore emerging forms of storytelling. She has been in residence at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, the Data & Society Research Institute, Columbia University’s Tow Center, and the Royal College of Art. At the heart of Onuoha’s work is a series of questions: What if the structure of information reveals more than the information itself? What if the most important moments in a story are the ones we aren’t aware of? Onuoha will show through a series of projects the ways in which people are represented, abstracted, classified, and forgotten–something that unfortunately happens all the time in the workplace.

Alex Blumberg

CEO and co-founder

Gimlet Media

Monday, February 12, 9:15 am–11:15 am

Driveway Moments

Alex Blumberg is the CEO and co-founder of Gimlet Media, an award-winning media company focused on narrative journalism and storytelling behind hit shows such as StartUp, Reply All, Homecoming, and more. Before founding Gimlet, Blumberg was a life-long radio producer at This American Life and co-founder and host of NPR’s Planet Money. Blumberg also served as executive producer on the television version of This American Life, which aired on the Showtime network and won four Emmy awards. Learn a unique approach to interviewing and story composition and discover how to create a “driveway moment”–that experience when the story is so good, it makes the audience pause what they are doing just to listen through to the end. Storytelling is in our DNA–now’s the time to put it to use in training.
