Presenters tell you how to be successful with your career, but do they ever tell you how to fight your way through the competitive creative industry? Do they ever reveal the dirty, gritty sludge of the working world, from backstabbers to concept theft?

Jason White, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director of Chicago-based studio Leviathan, exposes it all. In this unrehearsed, candid talk, Jason delivers an honest yet brutal account of real, personal stories from his 16 years in the creative industry, and he will empower you with the knowledge to not only thrive, but also succeed.

Due to the confidential and sensitive nature of this talk, we ask that you please refrain from any audio or video recording.
