Presentation

Overview

The thing that most often holds us back isn’t a temporary creative block, lack of opportunity or lazy collaborators. We’ve seen the enemy, and it is us. Kim Alpert, award winning creative and digital rabble-rouser, will explore and expose the ridiculousness of subjectively deciding your own limits. Through her own personal stories, from murderous on-set rampages and agoraphobia to personal losses, she’ll illustrate how a “why would you can’t” approach calls bullshit on seemingly intractable creative limitations. Outcomes can be shaped by your approach — take one that’s unafraid of deadlines and unapologetic about your needs.

Objective

The only thing holding us back is us.
