Seth Godin

Best-Selling Author, Entrepreneur, Blogger and Podcaster

Opening General Session: The Practice: Shipping Creative Work

Please join author, blogger, podcaster, coach and entrepreneur, Seth Godin, as he opens the IFA 2021 Convention with his talk based on his latest best selling book, The Practice. Seth will argue that Creativity matters more than ever, and each of us is being called on to be a Creative. A professional, able to conjure original thought on command. We tweet, we run meetings, we write. We invent and share ideas. Mostly, we’re in a race to find our voice, change the culture and make an impact that we can be proud of. Along the way, we’ve also been brainwashed into believing that creativity is a gift, something mysterious that the muse hands to a few select people. We’re not to look at it too closely or it might disappear. Nonsense. Creativity is a choice. The author of 20 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages, Seth is also the founder of the altMBA and The Akimbo Workshops, online seminars that have transformed the work of thousands of people. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow. His book, This Is Marketing, was an instant bestseller around the world. In addition to his writing and speaking, Seth has founded several companies, including Yoyodyne and Squidoo. His blog (which you can find by simply typing “seth” into Google) is one of the most popular in the world. His podcast is in the top 1% of all podcasts worldwide. In 2018, he was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame and his Ted talks have yielded millions of views worldwide. This will be an unforgettable session you can’t afford to miss.
