In anticipation of the upcoming PSFK SAN FRANCISCO Future of Retail conference, we’re taking a look back at some of the best talks from previous San Francisco conferences. Check out the videos below to get an idea of what to expect on November 21 in the Fort Mason Center. See you in San Francisco!

Jermaine Dupri, rapper and creator of social network Global 14, and David Deal, former senior vice president of digital marketing agency iCrossing, discussed building communities around things people actually like, not circumstantial connections. They explore the limits of current social platforms and posit a new way to bring people together online.

Jason Oberfest, co-founder and CEO of Mango Health, demonstrates how games can be used to make monitoring your health fun by adhering to video game design principles. By involving individuals in their health through mobile games, muscle memory ingrains the activity into a person’s routine, leading to better health.

Eric Ryan, founder of organic soap company Method, discussed his five favorite things from 2012, including design ventures, unexpected product innovations, and producing Method’s first-ever television spots. Ryan emphasizes the importance of “keeping it weird” even as the company grows and changes.

Gerald Richards spoke about 826 National, the creative writing workshop which has blossomed from a storefront in San Francisco’s Mission District into a national writing program for kids between the ages of eight and 16. His story applies for anyone who wants to open a store and keep people coming back.

Dana Cho and Beau Trincia of design and innovation consulting agency Ideo told four different stories to illustrate how retail is changing, through customer service or emphasizing a product’s origin story.
