John Coyle at Chicago Ideas Week — October 16


We are thrilled to announce that Maddock Douglas’ SVP of Innovation, John Coyle, will be giving a featured keynote presentation during the Edison Talks at Chicago Ideas Week on October 16, 2015.

Time 2.0: How To Leverage The Nonlinear Nature Of Time To Live Forever

Join 900 people in the Cadillac Palace for 15 prominent and unique speakers and artists from various sectors giving short talks, interviews or performances on various interpretations of a particular theme. This year, we’ll explore “Is There Time?″

John will take the stage to first describe the role time has played in his life through speed skating, Y2K and beyond, then invite our influential audience to join you in pondering the question, “Is there time to value time?” “Why is time our most precious commodity and how do we experience it differently at different times?” “What can we do in our daily lives to better experience or make use of time?” “Can the Art of Really Living really make you ‘live forever’?”

John Coyle is a thought leader in the field of horology. John studies the cognitive biases and errors that govern “experiential time” and explores ways to slow, stop and reverse the acceleration of the ticking of the clock in service of the most precious commodity we have: time.

Edison Talks will be live streamed by ABC7 Chicago, and we would love for you to tune in if you can’t be there in person.

Previous speakers include: Malcolm Gladwell, President Bill Clinton, General Colin Powell, Deepak Chopra, Buzz Aldrin, Donna Karan, Secretary Hillary Clinton, George Lucas and others.
