Join us for the 1st Mentor Makers Book Club featuring: "Two Beats Ahead: What Musical Minds Teach Us About Innovation"
About this Event
Join us for Mentor Makers' First Virtual Book Club Session
Musicians may just hold the keys to innovation in business. They don't think like we do, & in the creative process, they don't act like we do. It isn't a coincidence that some of the world's most respected creators, like Jimmy Iovine & Bjork, are also entrepreneurs.

In Two Beats Ahead, the Global Design Director at IDEO & the Senior Vice President for Global Strategy & Innovation at Berklee College of Music interview some of the nation's top musicians & business leaders about how they approach innovation differently. They tap into the elusive musician's mindset to explore what makes musicians good problem solvers, leaders, & entrepreneurs. Through this lens, they provide a new framework of seeing & responding to a dynamic world & offer an approach that will help readers apply the openness & adaptability to different contexts.

Panay & Hendrix speak with Justin Timberlake about the importance of demoing, & discuss the essentials of acute listening with Jimmy Iovine. Readers will learn the secrets to maximizing results in a collaboration from Beyonc & Pharrell Williams. They'll learn the importance of experimentation from musical pioneers Imogen Heap & Radiohead, & have a front row seat in a conversation about producing with T Bone Burnett & Hank Shocklee, co-founder of Public Enemy. Offering clear & concise mindsets that any entrepreneur or innovative thinker can put into practice, this is a one-of-a-kind business book that shows how to thrive in an evolving world--from some of the top creative geniuses of our time.

Panay & Hendrix explain how musicians, similar to entrepreneurs:

Listen for the gaps & create moments that break patterns
Repurpose what they have & create room to explore
Know when to step up, step back, & leave room for others
Choose the right partners to collaborate with
Make authentic connections with their audiences
