For one amazing day each year Creative Summit descends on Skellefteå, Sweden for a day of amazing talks, conversations and interactions. A true community emerges, built around dynamic conversations. This year the theme was Communication in the era of Cyborgs and Algorithms and the lineup featured everyone from Cyborg Artists to tech creators, experience makers to Facebook. Andy had the privilege of moderating the summit and in this special show, we capture some of the highlights of the day and put a LifeWork spin on them. Huge thanks goes to Peter and the team at WDO both for creating the event and allowing us to use the audio for the podcast and of course, to the amazing speakers who shared their ideas and stories. Not only can we choose our own path, but in the future what that looks like will be very different!
