You’ve heard the advice, find your passion and pursue it. That quitting your job and working for yourself is the only way you can realize your talents. The reality is that most people aren’t in a position to do either. Especially in the first half of a career, paying the bills working for someone else is less of a choice than a necessity.

Explore the path less talked about, building a career in creativity as an employee. Stephen Martell, Head of Innovation at DE-YAN has more than 20 years of experience in the creative technology space, which has continuously involved – from being a creative, to pitching, to building teams, to launching products. Stephen has found the balance between entrepreneurial spirit and working for someone else.

This is the talk for anyone who is creatively or professionally frustrated, is trying to find their next move, or believes, if given the right chance, they’re destined to succeed.
