Event speakers: Seth Godin, Magnus Scheving, founder of LazyTown, and George Bryant, founder of Brooklyn Brothers. This is an event no marketer in Europe should miss. A chance to hear one of the most inspiring lecturer in marketing today, as well as visiting the vibrant and unique ReykjavĂk.
Seth Godin Bestselling author, entrepreneur and agent of change Named one of the top 21 speakers for the 21st century by Successful Meetings magazine, Godin draws on his best-selling books and years of being a marketing pioneer to bring audiences of all kinds to their feet. Godin is the author of thirteen books that have all been bestsellers around the world and have
been translated into more than 35 languages. His most recent titles include We Are All Weird. The book itself calls for end of mass and for the beginning of offering people more choices, more interests and giving them more authority to operate in ways that reflect their own unique, albeit sometimes weird, values. Seth was founder and CEO of Yoyodyne, the industry's leading interactive direct marketing company, which Yahoo! acquired in late 1998. He holds an MBA from Stanford, and was called "the Ultimate Entrepreneur for the Information Age" by Business Week. Seth is consistently rated among the very best speakers by the audiences he addresses
Invisible or Remarkable? In his enlightening lecture program, Godin focuses on the creative thinking necessary for a business to create a â€œpurple cowâ€? â€“ an offering that stands out from the crowd and causes customers to take notice. Using real-world examples from extremely successful companies, Godin reveals the benefits of using creative, remarkable thinking to transform business ideas and practices. Godin explores how ideas spread, why the stories companies tell matter, why treating customers with respect pays off, and how these and other business decisions determine whether your business becomes invisible or remarkable.

Over the last 20 years, Magnus has worked consistently to promote the philosophy behind LazyTown and bringing it to fruition, but it hasn’t always been easy. In the early days he worked as a carpenter, gym teacher, gym owner and TV show host, while developing his ideas and gathering the information and research that makes LazyTown the success it is today.
