The International Live Events Association (ILEA) announced the keynote presentations for ILEA Live, Aug. 10-12 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada will focus on the business of experiential creativity for live event professionals.
In his keynote presentation “The Art of Being Unmistakable,” Srinivas Rao, host and founder of The Unmistakable Creative Podcast and Author of Unmistakable, will share how to ignore best practices, trust intuition, develop creative ideas and breakthrough solutions to solve problems. Attendees will learn how to think like artists, as opposed to marketers.
Johanna Blakley, PhD, Managing Director at the Norman Lear Center, will deliver a keynote address, “Creative Lessons from the Fashion Industry.” Blakley takes attendees on an exploratory journey to demonstrate how a creative industry like fashion continuously drives innovative thought to deliver business results.
