Fear can either suppress your ingenuity, or it can fuel it. Choosing the latter is what gets you first to the finish line. NIR BASHAN is a world-renowned creativity expert. He has taught thousands of leaders and individuals around the globe how to harness the power of creativity to improve profitability, increase sales, and ultimately create more meaning in their work. Nir has spent the last two decades working on a formula to codify creativity.
That formula is found in The Creator Mindset, a NY Times bestselling book which has been translated into two languages. From business schools to boardrooms, the prevailing wisdom is that value is generated through efficiency and productivity. Both are quantifiable; they show up on a spreadsheet. Bashan encourages us to think beyond the spreadsheet. He makes the case for value generation through creativity, and then provides a step-by-step guide for anyone to unleash it.
The Creator Mindset makes a compelling case for why you can’t let analytic thinking come at the cost of creativity. Bashan offers tools to shift your thinking to embrace creativity—unlocking your potential to see things the way they should be, then problem solve, and innovate.

When it comes to Navy SEALS, DON MANN wins the race. As a member of SEAL Team Six for more than eight years and a SEAL for more than 17 years, he worked in countless covert operations, operating from land, sea, and air, and facing shootings, decapitations, and stabbings. He was captured by the enemy and lived to tell the tale, and he participated in highly classified missions all over the globe, including Somalia, Panama, El Salvador, Colombia, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
Moreover, Mann is a high endurance athlete, who has been in more than 1,000 races (mostly extreme runs that make marathons look like a walk in the park). At one time, he was the 38th highest ranked triathlete in the world. He starred in the popular Surviving Mann show on AmericanStoriesTV.
Mann is the author of the autobiography Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America’s Elite Warriors. When Osama bin Laden was assassinated, the entire world was fascinated by the men who had completed the seemingly impossible mission that had dogged the U.S. government for more than a decade. SEAL Team 6 became synonymous with heroism, duty, and justice. Only a handful of the elite men who make up the SEALs, the US Navy’s best and bravest, survive the legendary and grueling selection process that leads to Team 6, a group so classified it technically does not even exist. There are no better warriors on Earth.
Now, Don Mann – who holds a Masters Degree in Management from Troy State University – will be a special keynote presenter at the Maximum Acceleration conference. He’ll talk about goal setting, achieving against impossible odds, and building the fortitude it takes to succeed when it seems like everything is against you.
