In 2018, we orchestrated a siren call to action for the highest kind of innovator, Fenomen, who doesn’t succumb to fear and resentment, but demonstrates resilience in the face of intolerance, inequality and the challenge posed by those technology has left behind.
Defintion: Swedish for “Phenomenon”, A “Fenomen” is a leader against all odds, a creative solution or person that exists even though it goes against all common logic that it does.
Today’s tempestuous times call for more than entrepreneurs, more than disruptors or creators, they call for Fenomen, the highest level of innovators. Our Fenomen speakers in 2018 included newly-minted Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, Vice founder Shane Smith, Tom Freston, Duran Duran’s John Taylor, Barbara Bush, Jesse Williams, and Ilwad Elman.
