Two Beats Ahead: What Musical Minds Teach Us About Innovation
Located in the Training Room at the ECenter. Make sure to register in advance on Eventbrite.
Join us for what will be a long talked about speaker event at UNH!
Discover what the musical mind has to teach us about innovation in this fascinating speaker event that shares interviews with Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, T Bone Burnett, Gloria Estefan, Imogen Heap, and many more.
Musicians may just hold the keys to innovation in business. They don’t think like we do, and in the creative process, they don’t act like we do. It’s no coincidence that some of the world’s most respected creators are also entrepreneurs.
Authors of Two Beats Ahead, Panos A. Panay, senior vice president for strategy at Berklee College of Music, and R. Michael Hendrix, global design director at IDEO, will discuss their insights from interviews some of the nation’s top musicians and business leaders about how they approach innovation differently. They speak with hit maker Desmond Child about the importance of demoing and with industry legend Jimmy Iovine about listening and knowing your audience.
Attendees will learn the secrets of collaboration from Beyoncé and Pharrell Williams, about “daring to suck” from Justin Timberlake, about the power of reinvention from Gloria Estefan, and the importance of experimentation from Imogen Heap and Radiohead. And you’ll learn the value of finding and producing talent with T Bone Burnett and Hank Shocklee, cofounder of Public Enemy.
FREE book to first 50 attendees. FREE dinner. Multiple Raffle Prizes to Hayden Sports and more
