WE HAVE AN ENERGY PROBLEM …

WE HAVE AN ENERGY PROBLEM

1) Physical events cause people with like interests to congregate.

2) It's during this time that we get inspired by those around us – creating a unique ambiance

3) But then Daily Life creeps back in and we lost this feeling

I'm out to understand why and in turn be able to survive these energy spikes in life.

  • A lot better than the daily routines we go through; we look forward to these events because they’re different, exciting.

  • And to make matters worse, most of these people that once connected are no longer together.
  • We retrace our steps…
  • Now, I titled this talk ‘Event Impact’ because these events are powerful, centralized points of congregation that I believe can positively affect a surrounding community. For them to have this effect, however, they require more of this ENERGY that’s currently getting lost.So I decided to continue researching this beyond just working on TEDxUofM, and here’s how I started…

  • …not unlike these impressionist painters I’ve been studying in class, such as Manet and Van Gogh, where they tell a story through their depiction of some experience. Look at that, French Art actually made it into the presentation!!!Now, these paintings are conversations waiting to happen, with infinite interpretations of what the creator was trying to convey. I see people’s insights as the same kind of thing.

  • use these personal perspectives as a means of connecting with those other people at an event that might share them.Do any of us use Twitter?Lets go back to our conference example from earlier. Like an artist, one can whip out their phone to capture something inspiring, whether it’s through text, audio, photos, or maybe even a drawing.Unlike much of what we do today, I don’t just want to push for consumption, but rather I want to have others’ input in the environment be the spark for conversation, rather than just another post in an endless feed

    • 30. What Happened?!? Otherwise…back to daily lifeEnergy Social Brief Build-Up Media Reminder attempt Event Time
    • 31. This is all we‟ve got
    • 32. So, I decided to go on a little Exploration
    • 33. with a question…
    • 34. Meet cool People Learn somethingSecure a Deal Break from the Office
    • 35. When we all ask this question…
    • 36. …we create more „Collisions‟
    • 37. Collisions around shared interests
    • 38. something StephenJohnson describesin the awesomevideo Where GoodIdeas Come From
    • 39. These Collisions form inspiration
    • 40. which we can draw on when we‟re Not Together
    • 41. Mobile phones might help with this
    • 42. A longtime friend inspired this idea
    • 43. He‟s not unlike famous artists
    • 44. Like this guy
    • 45. Like this guy(it‟s Van Gogh)
    • 46. They use their perspective as a means of telling a story
    • 47. This story is the beginning of a collision
    • 48. Why don‟t we do the same thing?
    • 49. X
    • 50. different perspectivesX common place
    • 51. different perspectivesX = collective inspiration common place
    • 52. This is helping us see it
    • 53. And this is helping us hear it
    • 54. We need to feel it

    • 60. Where this happens
    • 61. Being at one‟s “Best” = Inspired Motivation
    • 62. But it needs nurturing
    • 63. I‟m solving for „X‟
    • 64. by compiling people‟s thoughts
    • 65. by compiling people‟s thoughtsWhy do you attend an event?What inspires you?Who are you looking for?What’s missing?
    • 66. Whetheryou‟re here
