Listen to your fears. Listen to your longings. Dare to make beautiful mistakes.

André Platteel rode the fast track in his career in the creative industry, likening the success to feeling like a drug. When that fell out from under his feet, he realised that he needed to take the time to reflect on who he was and what creativity meant to him. In this poignant talk, he explores the avenues in which we can leverage the opportunity to restart, to embrace our true selves, and enable creativity to flow naturally through us in the process.

Maybe that’s the biggest journey you have to make. The journey is not outward but it’s the journey inward to battle your own demons and to make space - really make space for creativity to flow through you. — André Platteel
