AEA Video: Scott Berkun (Confessions of a Public Speaker) – The Five Most Dangerous Ideas

Video URL:

There are truths about how the world works that creatives don't like to talk about. We get angry and frustrated when we're not granted the power we think we deserve, but there are often good reasons the world works "against us."

In this 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, Scott Berkun (author, Confessions of a Public Speaker) tackles designer disempowerment head on. Discover how power actually works, and why developing salesmanship skills is a must, even if your job is not public-facing. Learn to stop being frustrated on the job, and develop practical behaviors for achieving your dreams at work.

An Event Apart will hold eight conferences in 2013—each featuring a different line-up of brilliant speakers like Scott, offering fresh takes on the topics that matter most to passionate practitioners of standards-based web design. Following each two-day conference comes an optional all-day workshop on multi-device design, featuring new material from Luke Wroblewski (author, Mobile First). Attend the AEA conference nearest you, or pick a city you've always wanted to visit. For the latest on AEA, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or subscribe to our mailing list.
