In this talk you will discover what magicians, activists and game designers can teach us about turning ventures into meaningful brands to reach scale.

As a white South African growing up under the Apartheid regime, Christophe Fauconnier never stopped challenging narrow mindedness. It got him into trouble on several occasions and at the age of 18, after a State of emergency was declared, he left the country to seek wisdom elsewhere. His personal mission became ‘liberating’ himself and others from the institutional nonsense and self-imposed limitations that stop us from creating more value from true human interactions. This mission was transformed into an (ad)venture with fellow travelers, and led to the creation of Innate Motion: bringing human sense to business in a world that applies too much business sense to humans.
