Adam Savage Keynote Topics
How simple ideas lead to scientific discoveries
An apple falls from a tree and hits Isaac Newton's head - according to the popular legend this is how Newton first thought of the idea of gravity. Although false, this story serves as a perfect example of what Adam Savage, the famous host of MythBusters will try to convey in this speech. With a lot of fun and stories, Adam will identify small events that can produce simple ideas in our minds that can eventually lead to big discoveries. Normally we push these ideas away either because of their absurdity or because they are impossible to carry out, but Adam encourages us to see that pursuing them can make fascinating scientific discoveries.
Problem Solving: How I Do It
Every problem can be faced in very different ways. Most of us would find several ways to solve it, but would be limited by our own imagination or experiences. Join Adam Savage, the famous MythBuster in this fun and exciting session where he will delve into lateral thinking and everything that this way of facing life and problems entails. Adam will show us through simple practices that many times the straightest path to get from A to B is not always the best nor the only possibility. Savage will enlighten the audience by showing how a well-trained mind can surprise us and help us improve.
Ground Rules for Success
Projectionist, interior and stage designer, entertainer, graphic designer, carpenter, toy designer, welder, stage painter, actor, writer, motivational speaker ... Adam Savage has worked on all of the above during his life and has taken from each of those hats something that has added value to achieve success. In this session, your audience will know the rules that Savage sets in his projects to achieve success and why has he chosen these rules. These rules do not ensure success, but they can save us from embarking on disastrous projects or knowing when to stop when something doesn't work for us.
Every Tool is a Hammer
