Description

WARNING: No tall Welshmen were harmed too badly in this video. Mostly psychological damage probably. SXSW Interactive Advisory Board member Jon Burkhart was speaking at Innovation Social's Innovation Stories event in London on 6 July. He was speaking about his workshop to help UK ad folk submit better talks so they can get the chance to speak at SXSW 2016 next March in Austin, Texas. As Jon was speaking, he noticed that a friend Felix was in the audience. Hey Human's Felix Morgan and Dan Machen submitted this to SXSW last year: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/33111 Their talk on neuroplasticity was one of the major highlights of SXSW. They abided by all of Jon's rules for submitting talks (unknowingly). It was amazing. SECOND WARNING: Not so humble brag that justifies Jon leading workshops on this coming now. While Jon's spoken 5 times at SXSW and had 9 talks accepted, he's never created a talk like theirs. The success at SXSW led to the guys travelling the world speaking 14 different times in 8 different countries. Jon analyses their entire approach in his workshop, by the way. What happens to Felix in this video was done out of part love and part jealousy. Well done, guys and well done Hey Human junior innovator Aoife Mcguinness for all your hard work on this project.
