With each new day, you can guarantee that some very bright people are planning get-togethers designed to have massive impacts for everyone involved. The settings can be musical, artistic, creative, academic or business-focused; these are events you hear about before saying, “that sounds awesome,” and “sign me up.” This actively researched and updated blog series is my answer to helping people learn about ultimate events on a timely basis.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Danny Boyle’s 2012 Summer Olympics “large-canvas nation-themed spectacle” of an opening ceremony will always be remembered as one of the most eccentric and memorable Games’ kickoffs in history. Since NBC’s broadcast reportedly attracted nearly 41 million viewers, THR has also named it the highest rated Summer Olympics opening of all time.

I can see now that providing a comprehensive resource detailing upcoming happenings that you are sure to deem highly valuable and inspirational could easily be a full-time job. In the past two weeks, there were at least 10 major ones that I’m sorry to have missed… like the 2016 WIRED Business Conference, for which I am embedding a YouTube Playlist here. I have added WIRED’s seminal event and many others that slipped by to my tracking calendar, and will do my best to alert you in advance of their next editions. Meanwhile, I hope you will find something here of interest. Thank you in advance for your feedback on any of these events and news sources in comments or by direct message. Stay cool my friends!

It has been an exciting week for me, even though I am once again missing the annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity currently underway in France. Fortunately for us non-attendees, the Festival running 18-25 June has teamed-up with global media agency network Mindshare and YouTube to provide two live-streamed sessions every day this week. I’m embedding a YouTube playlist here featuring every one of these sessions… new videos will continue to go live here over the days ahead. Hopefully these presentations – streamed in real-time for a global audience – will be rich with valuable secrets and insights.
Here is the complete rundown of the sessions that were chosen by almost 20,000 voters: Read more

Thirty years ago, the South by Southwest (SXSW) film festival began in Austin, Texas. Having grown to essentially become all things to all people, the event’s concurrent film, interactive media and music festivals and conferences attract 85,000 attendees, which includes the lion’s share of the entertainment and advertising industries, as well as the brand marketers wanting to engage with them. This year’s SXSW will launch on 11 March and run on through the 20th. Perhaps slightly less well known is the fact that SXSW, Inc., also runs the SXSWedu conference on educational innovation (running 7-10 March this year in Austin), the SXSW Eco environmental conference (set for 10-12 Oct. in Austin), and SXSW V2V focused on innovative startups (future dates and locations TBD).
I’ve just taken a fresh look at all the relevant news feeds to point you to the pure gospel. Enlightenment awaits: Read more
