Every M.B.A. candidate in the world would kill to learn from Adam Grant. He's been recognized as both the youngest tenured and most highly-rated professor at the Wharton School, and his new book, Originals: How Non-Conformists Change The World, is a #1 national bestseller. At Dream, Adam structured his talk around the book's central concept: some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world are often filled with doubt, have bad timing, and possess many other qualities we don't normally associate with success. Adam explored a series of unlikely entrepreneurs and their paths to greatness, humanizing them along the way.
Adam infused plenty of humor and lighthearted content into his talk, and OXBOW made sure the presentation followed suit. Bold entrepreneur profiles were interspersed with custom political cartoons, memes, and off-hand commentary from comedians and cultural icons. The illustrative style? Bold, tangible, and human.
