In anticipation of our upcoming PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO 2011 on October 6th, we’re taking a look back at some of the best video from conferences past. Watch the videos below for a taste of the atmosphere of our conferences and get in-depth insights into a wide array of topics from why trends matter to the story behind the creation of a toaster. Looking forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Thomas Thwaites tried to reconstruct an electric toaster from its basic components and found it not so easy to do. The cheapest model he could find had 400 components made of a hundred different materials. Watch his talk on mining, extracting iron for steel and creating plastic in his kitchen from the PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON 2010.

At the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO 2008, Ed Cotton explained why trends and inspiration matter. Approaching the whole idea of his talk from a creative perspective, Ed described how account planners and other individuals responsible for briefing creative people can package their message up in a way to get people to pay attention.

Artist Ritta Ikonen told us about her imaginative costumes and playful photography during the PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON 2010. Her creative projects on collaboration, social and environmental awareness are truly inspiring.

Ouigi Theodore shares his unpredictable, inspiring journey to becoming the visionary founder of BK Circus, a trendsetting mens and womens boutique and lifestyle brand at the PSFK CONFERENCE NEW YORK 2010.

Who’s the next big influencer? What is influence in the modern, interconnected world? Who, and what, are today’s big sources of inspiration? Get your tickets for the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO 2011 and find out. Come listen to like minds as they share their ideas to make things better on stage and off.
