Add to Calendar 09/26/2017 12:15 PM 09/26/2017 01:45 PM America/New_York The Fallacy of “Impossible”

All modern conveniences were once considered impossible by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones, and digital watches—not to mention cars and computers—were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. Mick Ebeling will dive deeper into “impossible,” the underlying psychological effects it has on an organization, and discuss how to overcome “impossible” so true innovation can take place.

Biography:

A recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and listed as one of the most influential creative people by The Creativity 50’s, Mick Ebeling has sparked a movement of pragmatic, inspirational innovation. As a career producer and filmmaker and now founder and CEO of Not Impossible, Ebeling harvests the power of technology and story to change the world.

Ebeling founded Not Impossible, a multiple award-winning social innovation lab and production company, on the premise that nothing is impossible. His mantra of "commit, then figure it out" allows him to convene a disparate team of hackers, doers, makers and thinkers to create devices that better the world by bringing accessibility for all. This unconventional approach brought to life highly acclaimed initiatives-the EyeWriter, Project Daniel, Don’s Voice and most recently Music Not Impossible--that brought the ability to draw back to a paraplegic street artist, 3D-printed arms to Sudanese amputees and "voice" to an ALS patient who hadn’t spoken in 15 years.

Working with a wide array of Fortune 500 companies, Ebeling not only pushes the bar on innovation, he also shares the emotionally resonating story of doing so. These narratives of overcoming seemingly impossible odds have inspired people across the world to do the same.

Named one of Wired’s “Agents of Change,” a two-time SXSW innovation of the year award winner, and recipient of every major creative and advertising award, Ebeling is on a mission to provide “Technology for the Sake of Humanity.” By tapping into a community of passionate and talented engineers, makers, idea generators and storytellers, Ebeling is making the inconceivable, the unbelievable and the impossible Not Impossible.
