Named by Fortune Magazine as one of the Top 50 World’s Greatest Leaders, a recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and listed as one of the world’s most influential creative people by The Creativity 50’s, Mick Ebeling is a maker, hacker and inventor who has sparked a movement of pragmatic, inspirational innovation. As a career producer and filmmaker and now founder and CEO of Not Impossible, Ebeling consistently speaks to companies and audiences all over the world inspiring them to change their world, and the world.
Ebeling founded Not Impossible, a multiple award-winning social innovation lab and production company, on the premise that nothing is impossible. His mantra of “Commit, Then Figure it out” allows him to convene a brilliant team of hackers, doers, makers, and thinkers to create inventions and creations that better the world by bringing accessibility for all.
Called the “Elon Musk of Good," Ebeling is only person to ever be honored 2x as a TIME Magazine Top Invention of the Year recipient, a 2x Tribeca Disruptor innovation winner, a 2x SXSW innovation of the year award winner, as a WIRED Agent of Change, a fellow with The Nantucket Project, and a recipient of every major creative and advertising award, Ebeling is on a mission to change the world by creating “Technology for the Sake of Humanity.”
The Fallacy of “Impossible”
Since the launch of the Eyewriter and Not Impossible Foundation, Mick has passionately studied the concept of “Impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered “impossible” by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. In this talk, Mick dives deeper into “Impossible,” the underlying psychological effects it has on an organization, and how to overcome “Impossible” so true innovation can take place.
Take a Hollywood producer, a NY professor, a fine artist and a hacker with a criminal record…Put them together and what do you get? A device that helped a paralyzed man create drawings using only the movement of his eyes. Collaboration comes in many forms, some of them unexpected. In this talk, Mick discusses the tools necessary to become a stellar collaborator and to recognize the traits of collaboration-worthy individuals for your next big idea.
Creating a Culture of Impact and Purpose
Imagine what companies could accomplish and be if their entire workforce was activated by a sense of purpose. This isn’t just about employee satisfaction, recruiting or retention; this is about tapping into the Movement of Purpose so that both companies AND society win. In this talk, Mick will delve into the creation of a Culture of Purpose and Impact and the direct effects this has on profitability, productivity, innovation, and engagement.
Darth Meets Luke: Reimagining AI
Speculation about the future of AI vacillates between sunny Jedi optimism and dire warnings of Sith doom. But there is a third side, says Mick Ebeling as he explores three levels of technological enhancement to human life, emphasizing networks for the greater good. His presentation has immediate implications and applications for any discipline where technology can extend human capability.
Creativity for Breakfast: Breeding a Creative Culture
Peter Drucker’s famous quote “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” has never been more true - and needed - than today. Finding innovative ways to be nimble and creative in the midst of one of the most turbulent periods in modern history, (social unrest, political strife, a pandemic) will not only inform which companies will survive, but those that will thrive. The creative revolution has been democratized. The leaders' role to mine and nurture creativity within their organizations have never been more critical than today. In this talk, Mick will teach business leaders the way of the “hacker-maker” and the gift of positive failure. Mick will empower leaders' resourcefulness and remind them that the business landscape has never been more primed for breakthrough innovations… and quite possibly with the help of some zip ties and duct tape.
