I’m a storyteller dedicated to discovering the people from all walks of life who are creating the future based on the their original ideas and bold ideals.
I’m passionate about the great outdoors (climbing its heights, diving into its depths, and doing my part to make sure we all keep breathing in its fresh air), health and good food (sweaty yoga, digging in the dirt, experimenting in the kitchen), reading between the lines, and learning something new every day.
I always try to follow the advice Don Juan gave Carlos Castaneda: to do everything as if it were the only thing in the world that mattered, while all the time knowing that it doesn’t matter at all.
We’re delighted to announce several new speakers for this year’s MIX Mashup (New York City | November 18-20, 2014) .
First up: Denise Young Smith, Apple's head of human resources and a new force for post-bureaucratic practices inside the company, will talk about what it takes to cultivate a switched-on community of contributors at every level—and what a true culture of inclusion looks like.
We are getting revved up for MIX Mashup 2014—and we hope you are too. We’re working hard to develop a program and create an experience that’s even more powerful and rewarding than our inaugural event.
We’ll be featuring the most provocative and pioneering thinkers and leaders reinventing organizations and changing the way we change; we'll go deep into the insights and lessons learned by in-the-trenches management innovators, and we'll not only inspire, but equip you to launch your own experiments and make a real impact in your own organizations and the wider world.
Today, we’re delighted to share some of the speakers we have lined up for you, as well as some of the core themes we’ll be exploring together.
There is a lingering notion in the world of business and beyond that organizations are things with four walls, that employees are people who report to work inside them every day for years on end, that work is a matter of executing on defined “KPIs,” and that success is a product of climbing ladders and exerting an ever-greater span of control.

What if our organizations were as human—as resilient, inventive, and inspiring—as the human beings who work inside them?
Heiko Fischer has been working at the frontlines of that question for years—first inside a range of organizations and now as the “Chief Resourceful Human” leading a movement to create “100% Democratic Entrepreneurship, 0% Bureaucracy” in every kind of organization.
