Vinh Giang, CEO of Luminary Productions, Entrepreneur, & Magician - @AskVinh on Twitter

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." Albert Einstein

Magic is much more than sleight of hand. It’s the ability to guide perspective, spotlight influence, and challenge belief systems. With humor, heart, and captivating showmanship, Vinh Giang transforms these three powerful components and shares how creating and cultivating the right influence in our lives can make the difference between tremendous success or limited mediocrity. What we know in this world is that everything that once seemed impossible can be reimagined and overcome. It takes suspending old belief systems. Unlocking mindsets. Innovating. Deliberate and definitive action. And yes, even a little magic. Attendees can expect to invite wonder and unlock limitless potential in your team!

 ​​​​​​​FRIDAY - APRIL 12, Closing Ceremonies and Keynote:

There are no better teachers of community building than the Burning Man community. A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by their Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

Burning Man Project produces the annual Burning Man event in Black Rock City, and works year-round to bring Burning Man culture to the world, providing inspiration, connection, education, and grants to a creative ecosystem of builders, makers, artists, and community leaders.  The nonprofit is developing programming in arts, education, and civic engagement based on Burning Man’s Ten Principles that people can replicate in their own communities. Burning Man Project's endeavors include a global network of individuals, organizations and communities that together produce more than 90 official Burning Man events annually; Burners Without Borders, and the Fly Ranch Project.
