Kidscreen Summit 2019 to Kick Off Exploring Happiness with Bestselling Book of Awesome Author

Kidscreen Summit is thrilled to announce that it has confirmed three keynote presentations as marquee features of its conference program for the 2019 event, which is set to take place in Miami, Florida from February 11 to 14.

The Tao of Happiness
A Harvard MBA, New York Times bestselling author (The Book of Awesome), award-winning blogger and one of the most popular TED talk speakers of all time, Neil Pasricha is a self-described “pied piper of happiness.” He spent a decade with Walmart, working directly for two CEOs as director of leadership development. And now he travels all over the world sharing thought-provoking messages about happiness with Fortune 500 companies, schools and non-profits. At Kidscreen Summit, Neil will draw on the latest research on his favorite subject to present ideas and strategies for leaders interested in increasing personal performance and creating more positive and productive teams.

Hitting the Finish Line Faster: Developing the Design Sprint way
Pioneered by New York Times bestselling author Jake Knapp during his time at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a one-week process for making development more efficient. For the past few years, AJ&Smart’s Brittni Bowering has been using the model with teams at companies such as The Lego Company, Twitter, Lufthansa, HSBC and Adidas to quickly validate ideas for new products, organizational change, marketing campaigns and more. It’s also got lots of potential value for content development, so make sure you join us to find out more about it.

The Value of Visual: A picture is worth more than 1,000 words now
We rely on our eyes like never before. They help us navigate not only the physical world, but also the complex narrative and information landscapes we increasingly inhabit. In a fast-moving flood of images and ideas, author and comic artist Scott McCloud shares a bracing new approach to stories and storytelling, exploring why every visual decision matters, and why a revolution in visual communication might be right around the corner.

Kidscreen Summit 2019 will once again take place at the InterContinental Miami, a contemporary luxury hotel located on prime waterfront in downtown Miami, and just minutes away from South Beach, the Design District, Coconut Grove’s bohemian village, and the many galleries, restaurants and boutique shops in Coral Gables.

In 2018, the event welcomed more than 2,000 attendees from 50-plus countries around the world, including more than 450 kids buyers and investors looking for new content and partners. Its unique positioning as a conference AND a market lets delegates customize their Summit experience to suit their goals and priorities. Offering an unparalleled conference program and networking opportunities, the event is the perfect place to learn about the latest trends, issues and opportunities and connect with the industry’s top decision-makers.
