Session: “The Realistic Idealist”

Gavin Strange prides himself on being a ‘realistic idealist’ or ‘idealistic realist’ – striking the balance between uncurbed enthusiasm and pragmatic process. Gavin will share his stories and methods behind getting the most out of those 24 pesky hours, conveyed via the medium of bright colours and animated GIFs. Floaty sentiments aside, this talk is about finding the energy and making the time to create things that matter to YOU.
