About the Video



Treasure is never found out in the open, treasure is found in the dark. Innovation, creativity, adventure, and life is found in the sacred mess of mystery, chaos, and uncertainty. The soul needs its secrets, and it is in these where true creativity originates.


This message deconstructs our addiction to facts and draws all the way from Japanese aesthetics to Oscar Wilde to speak on the necessity of uncertainty, the gift of chaos, and the source of true innovation.


This keynote and Masterclass gives leaders a new lens for thinking about where innovation originates. They will walk away with practical randomization practices they can build into their lives and their businesses.
