Announcing PSFK CONFERENCE 2014 Speakers

Pioneers, renegades, hackers and emerging heroes. Many of whom you've never heard of before. But that's the point.

  • 17 february 2014

We are very happy to announce this year’s flagship event in New York City.

PSFK CONFERENCE 2014 will be held on Friday April 11th.

Join us for a full day of innovation and insight as we bring together leading thinkers and change makers to share stirring new ideas and explore this year’s theme of Connecting the Unexpected. Now entering its eighth year, the focus of the conference has broadened to represent an increasingly eclectic mix of topics and speakers for our growing audience.

Some of the speakers already confirmed are multi-platform storytelling pioneer Ricky Van Veen of College Humor; product design innovator Matthew Waldman of Nooka; change renegade Mick Ebeling of NotImpossible, business philosopher Keith Yamashita of SYPartners; game theorist & culture observer Jamin Warren of Kill Screen.

We also have wearable tech pioneer Billie Whitehouse, mobile experience trail-blazer Bjorn Jeffery of Toca Boca, and teenage entrepreneur & denim prince Will Berman. Scott Thrift will talk about time since he last spoke and panelists Jessica Lawrence, Jonathan Gerzema and Rachel Sklar will continue the discussion about balancing modern culture creation and who needs to be part of it.

Stay tuned for more exciting speaker announcements in the coming weeks, and in the meantime check out the videos from our previous conference.
