WHY THIS TOPIC:
Brian Burkhart believes that, to be truly successful, leaders require the duality of both function and beauty. It’s all based on a Japanese arts aesthetic called ‘mengei’. The beauty part is often missing in business, which Brian has seen in a long career in healthcare, finance and disruptive technology. The “dirty” part? That comes from the world of ceramic arts and pottery, the metaphor Brian will use in demo form to share his lessons.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
– The power of harmonizing function and beauty in your work
– How to leave a mark with your work and be remembered for years
– How to balance the use of our proverbial muscle and bone in the workplace
THIS MIGHT BE FOR YOU IF YOU ARE:
– Looking for inspiration on how to elevate yourself
– A manager or leader trying to build your personal brand or identity
– Curious how to integrate more art in your work
