What does a virtuoso violin player know about creativity? A lot, according to the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, which is presenting an inspirational speaker at ADFEST 2009 that promises to be one of the highlights of the festival line-up.
Miha Pogačnik is a virtuoso violinist and cultural ambassador with an exceptional capacity to use classical music to inspire creative leaders to think beyond traditional boundaries. His presentation will be titled “Passage Through The Fire: A Harmonious Strategy For Uncertain Times”, and is likely to be one of the most unforgettable presentations of the year.
Through his music, Pogacnik brings the concept of ‘Creative Leadership’ to life by exploring the relationships between harmony and tension, success and failure, flow and crisis. In an economic climate of great turbulence, there’s no better time to seek creative inspiration from ‘outside the box’.
Part impassioned classical musical performance, part live improvisational drawing and 100% unbridled energy, Miha is an inspirational master of communication. His presentation is made possible by the Berlin School of Creative Leadership.
Miha Pogačnik boasts an unusual mix of musical and corporate skills. He is the President and Founder of the Institute for Development of Intercultural Relations through the Arts (IDRIART) and a Board Member of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership.
Since 1998, he has directed the annual Business and Art Conference at Castle Borl, Slovenia and has also addressed the World Business Academy, the World Economic Forum in Davos, and groups at the United Nations.
Miha´s clients also include Ericsson, Royal Dutch Shell, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Saatchi & Saatchi, Whirlpool, Skandia Insurance, ABN Amro Bank, Nike and The Body Shop.
