Creativity Unlocked: ELLE Profiles TED 2014 Speaker Sarah Lewis

Where do new ideas really come from? And why should we learn to embrace imperfection as a necessary part of the journey to success? Speaker Sarah Lewis answers these essential questions in her new book The Rise. Published this week, the book is one of the season's most anticipated, and Lewis has been chosen to speak at this month's TED 2014 conference in Vancouver.

A major profile in ELLE Magazine explores Lewis' personal journey to success as well as the genesis of the book: "In an era in which it’s become essential for everything we do (or post) to be instantly 'liked,' Lewis’ message is: Be prepared to look foolish. As she sees it, every experience, good or bad, is precious—who knows where it will lead?" The article describes the great successes—and failures and losses—that have shaped who Lewis has become. “I don’t see myself slowing down," she says, but she does wish for "an extra 10 hours in the day." We are looking forward to more from this rising star.

In her keynotes, Lewis offers a new understanding of what enables creative endeavors. Smart, uplifting, and counterintuitive, her talks will help change the way you think about creativity, innovation, and mastery. To book Sarah Lewis as a speaker, contact The Lavin Agency.
