SXSW PanelPicker: Secrets to Success
We have a truly incredible crop of entries for SXSW 2020 — a total of 4291 proposals that span the gamut from nanotechnology to astrobiology and everything in between. That’s where you come in!
Over the next two weeks, look to this space for some of the emerging themes in the proposals. One subject that’s clearly captivating many in our audience is the push-pull of success and failure.
We all crave success, and SXSW received 471 proposals that focus on that concept. But for every success, there are a hundred failures, and those failures have much to teach us — if we can find the resilience and the humility to learn from them. Here are some provocative proposals on success and failure from the 2020 SXSW PanelPicker interface:
- Fail to Win: The Value of Setbacks in Music
- Retreat Digitally Or Risk Losing Everything
- How Not To Lose Your Mind & Heart Growing Your Biz
- Law, AI & Design: Losing It All
- Being Successful at an Unstable Country
