The first speakers announced for THINK 19 in Miami, May 6 to 9, are marketing guru Seth Godin and chef and humanitarian José Andrés. Both are exemplars of turning change and even chaos into opportunity; both offer extraordinary perspectives on the power of human creativity in facing the challenges of the modern world.
“We’re delighted to bring José Andrés and Seth Godin to the THINK stage,” said Samantha Paxson, CO-OP’s Chief Experience Officer. “Seth Godin quite simply changed the course of marketing. Through his 18 ground-breaking books and his seminal marketing blog, he has influenced a generation of marketers to be more insightful, adaptive and inspired in their work.” As a serial entrepreneur and digital visionary, Godin is a noted thought leader on post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, leadership and, most of all, change as a constant catalyst.
“José Andrés has been a recognized innovator in the restaurant space for decades,” Paxson continues, “yet his achievements in that realm have been matched by his remarkable humanitarian efforts, which include serving 3.5 million meals to the survivors of Hurricane Maria.
