Neuroscientist, Entrepreneur, and Author of Deviate
Beau Lotto Bio
The only way to thrive in a rapidly changing world is to change with it. We know that. But the biggest barrier is in our heads. Neuroscientist and entrepreneur BEAU LOTTO shows why adapting - moving from A to B - means first moving from A to not-A. We need to let go of the assumptions and beliefs that keep us from seeing the world differently. A world-renowned expert in the science of perception, Beau reveals why trading certainty for doubt increases our capacity to adapt, lead, innovate, and thrive in the darkness of "I don't know."
A professor with deep academic credentials and critical scholarly works on the subject, Beau is also founder and CEO of two companies - Lab of Misfits, the world's first neuro-design studio, and Ripple, which holds several highly influential patents in Augmented Reality (AR). A three-time mainstage TED speaker with over 9,000,000 views, Beau has spoken around the world, delivering totally unique, visually stunning, interactive, and fun presentations that help people act differently in the face of change. His message is an ideal conference kick-off - providing powerful, positive, creative context that sets a tone for the content and collaboration that follow. Beau's latest book is Deviate: The Science of Seeing Differently.
