The Manuel Lima keynotes address the contemporary importance of networking. While realms such as pop culture, art and education used to be separate, they are now intensely interconnected. Social media tools have enabled this interconnected phenomenon, and according to Lima, one's success in today's world is largely dependent upon one's status within the global nexus.
Lima completed an Industrial Design BFA and subsequently followed up on this with his attainment of a Digital & Technology MFA at New York's Parsons School of Design. The intense MFA program led him to his research position at the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency's Siemens Corporate Research Center.
The range of relevant topics covered in the Manuel Lima keynotes follow up on his Creativity magazine designation as "one of the 50 most creative and influential minds of 2009." His current position as a senior design leader at Microsoft is aligned with this award, as well as with his foundation of VisualComplexity.com.
