Presented by Olaf Blomerus, B L M R S

Overview

Refuse to believe there’s a limit to how much you can know. Understand what perpetually learning (new skills) can do for you without mentally drowning from the start. In this presentation Olaf will take you through his own experience of wanting to know it all, being told to “focus”, diving into the deep end of VFX & VR without a life jacket and what he’s learned along the way. So don’t be afraid: be excited.

Objective

To help you understand why knowing more is better, not worse, and show you how to get started

Target Audience

Those eager to push their limits and do more, with more

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

Why “jack of all trades” is bull shit
When less is more
When more is more
Why a “little everyday” is important
Who Olaf is
