Top 10 Reasons We Are Excited About FUSE 2015

Share this article

It's absolutely freezing and all
we can think about is - when will spring be here?! And with spring, comes FUSE,
our favorite place to go for inspiration.  Here are the top 10 things we
just can't wait for (outside of not putting on 5 plus layers just to walk out
the door): 
1.      Keyu Jin. Know her? You should.  The world's foremost
authority on what's coming next in the China economy with an uncanny ability to
connect those macro-economic trends to what that means for both US based and
global brands: http://bit.ly/1JQKPme
2.      Stories from the top brand and design leaders from
every major company around like Samsung, General Mills, Kraft, Nestle,
Kellogg's, Amazon, Allstate, Yahoo, Newell Rubbermaid, 3M and more: http://bit.ly/1JQKPme
3.     But it's not all go big or go home. Today, whether you work
at a startup or not, there's huge value in learning to think like
one.  Hear from two of the hottest newest comers - Goddess
Garden and Kano Computer Kit. Lessons on Kickstarter and farmer's markets that
can be even more effective than the traditional boardroom pitch: http://bit.ly/1apiIdS
4.      FUSE Salons FINALLY connect you productively through
conversation.  Each day collaborate with fellow FUSEsters to identify key
themes from the morning keynotes and translate them back to YOUR business and
what matters most to you: http://bit.ly/1zKSqsm
5.      Get OUT of the hotel to learn and network. Check out
the remarkable new Kraft HQ, spend an afternoon with a burgeoning group of
designers at one of Chicago's most cutting edge public schools, or get a behind
the scenes tour led by the brand execs behind Mario Batali's Chicago hot spot
Eataly. Prefer to stay on property? Log a few hours with a monk and learn to
unlock practical mindfulness admits the daily insanity to increase productivity
and creativity: http://bit.ly/1zKSqsm
6.     Nothing beats a great story. FUSE is calling for 10
brave FUSEsters to join us on the FUSE Story Stage to share a story of a
fortunate mistake. Hosted by SC Johnson, revel in a curated collection of
silver linings, failures that opened entirely new doors and that one time when,
though you were down, you were definitely not out: http://bit.ly/18pzMzH
7.     Learn from brands in transition and brands at the top.
Kodak's newly appointed CMO has big plans for a comeback.  At some point
all of us we will be at the helm of a brand that needs to reinvent or die,
learn how at FUSE: http://bit.ly/1JQKPme
8.     Hear from the creator of Supersize Me - arguably one
of the most influential and provocative documentaries of the last
decade, Morgan Spurlock.  Now the Host of CNN's Inside Man, Morgan
will share lessons in originality, storytelling and doing good: http://bit.ly/1JQKPme
9.     A full 3 day agenda loaded with provocative
keynotes, ground breaking case studies, curated collaboration sessions and tons
of opportunities to meet the very best in the brand and design industry. 
Love a good party? We have that too - one every night: http://bit.ly/1wjSa2b
10.   FUSE believes
in education for all. A part of your investment in your own continuing
education will go directly to building a school in Kenya through our annual
support of Change Heroes - a groundbreaking effort to build schools
in the world's neediest areas.  Hear the story and get a progress report
on the FUSE school here: http://bit.ly/18pzMzH
Are you with us? We sure hope so.
