Not Taking a Risk is a Risk

Robert RedfordThe theme of reinvention was interwoven throughout the general sessions on day two of #AdobeSummit, and focused on the need for marketers to take risks for reinvention to actually happen. Our morning general session featured inspirational celebs, who are the epitome of risk-taking and reinvention – Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and iconic actor and filmmaker Robert Redford. Richard hit on the need for authenticity in social, which helped him through the much-talked-about interview with Erin Andrews. One of our #AdobeSummit Insiders, Elisabeth Osmeloski recapped the top 10 marketing lessons from Sherman’s session here. Redford followed shortly after with a talk focused on the need for art and creativity in business, noting that he sees “art as chaos and business as order, and one needs to follow the other.” Missed the session? Catch it here.

As we did with Yancey Strickler’s time on stage yesterday, we held a Tweet for Good activation while Robert was on stage. Across his 30+ minutes on stage with our CMO Ann Lewnes, his talk generated over 2,400 tweets that drove more than $12K in donations towards the Sundance Institute

We book ended the morning keynote with our Sneaks session, which offered a look into what we have going on in our Labs, and our Summit Bash headlined by Grammy Award winner Vampire Weekend. Here’s a quick digest:
