Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.“ This quote by author William Arthur
Ward has been proven right by Fifteen Seconds from 2014 on when they hosted their first
festival for business, innovation, and creativity in Europe. Since then, thousands of thinkers and makers from all over the globe have decided to join Fifteen Seconds and helped make it into what it is today: Europe’s leading interdisciplinary business festival. With Fifteen Seconds Unlimited, they are now growing their community in selected cities around the globe. First stop: Detroit.
Would you describe yourself as a creative person? No matter the answer, here’s the deal: Creativity is not a talent. It’s a way of operating. An asset that allows those who practice and nurture it to see things differently. And to solve complex problems in business as in everyday life. At the first edition of Fifteen Seconds Unlimited in Detroit, five bright minds are all set to unleash the beautiful creative beast within you. Join a Buddhist monk who has taught mindfulness at Google, LinkedIn and HSBC, a respected Silicon Valley influencer who has spent 35 years working with extraordinary leaders at Apple, Google and Facebook, InVision’s new head of design transformation a.k.a. “the crazy one”, a former fashion buyer turned “the Motor City’s hottest designer”, and a marketer from Montreal, with a focus in music, art, culture, and adult entertainment as they take the stage at the Garden Theater to spark inspiration.
