In Praise of Shadows

on innovation and the surprising places we find it.

Treasure is never found out in the open, treasure is found in the dark. Innovation, creativity, adventure, and life is found in the sacred mess of mystery, chaos, and uncertainty. The soul needs its secrets, and it is in these where true authenticity lies.

In this keynote Pierre deconstructs our addiction to facts and draws from Japanese aesthetics all the way to Oscar Wilde to speak on the necessity of uncertainty, the gift of chaos, and true innovation.

After this talk your audience will have a new lens to understand where innovation comes from and to intentionally craft ways to discover new spaces for inspiration. They will leave the talk with practical randomisation rituals they can built into their everyday lives and into their teams.
