Meetings Matter. The Revenge of Analog Author David Sax Explains Why In His New Talk.

As companies globalize and everyone shifts to digital conferences, Skype meetings, and online productivity trackers, David Sax triumphantly proves the incredible value of meeting face-to-face. Author of the #1 Washington Post bestseller The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter, Sax is a funny, sophisticated observer of human behavior in the digital age. 

“In a world of endless email chains, group chats, pop-up messages or endlessly tweaked documents and images, the walled garden of analog saves both time and inspires creativity,” says Sax. And the biggest players in the game all know it: “Web designers at Google have been required to use pen and paper as a first step when brainstorming new projects for the past several years, because it leads to better ideas than those begun on a screen.”


Real things, real experiences, real meetings are a forgotten art turned secret advantage. Sax's entertaining talks and workshops help guide audiences back to them.

Organizations Need to Cultivate Rebel Talent to Evolve, Innovate and Stay Relevant. Francesca Gino’s New Book Explains How.

Behavioral scientist and Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino has written the book on breaking the rules, in business and in life. Out May 1, Rebel Talent is already collecting praise from the likes of Angela Duckworth (the NYT bestselling author of Grit) and Ed Catmull, (president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios.) 

Gino has spent over a decade studying rebels in organizations around the world, from high-end boutiques in Italy to thriving fast food chains, to Pixar—Disney’s award-winning computer animation studio. The rebels are the rule breakers: those naturally drawn to innovation and reinvention as opposed to routine and tradition. Gino argues in her book that the future belongs to these rebels—and that there’s a rebel to be found in everyone. You just have to know how to cultivate it.
