If you want to know what happened at the CONCLAVE LEARNING CONFERENCE’s 39th annual convention – Perry Michael Simon did a great job of summarizing the Programming Track for AllAccess.  Go read that HERE.conclave39logo

If you want to learn the way forward for Radio makers – indeed, everyone trying to do something great – watch and really listen to the ideas in this video I discovered while waiting for my massively delayed flight home at the Minneapolis Airport.

Seth Godin: Keep Making a Ruckus from 99U on Vimeo.

Yes, I know my fellow Radio traveler – it’s easy to hate on Seth because he dissed Radio – but in this video he gives us the keys to inventing the future – instead of – as he put it – “coasting on the fumes of people too lazy to change.

If they showed this video at the beginning of Conclave and had us spend the rest of the day interacting with each other about how we were going to go back and execute on these ideas – this industry could ignite an actual Renaissance.

And that’s scary.  But isn’t that the message of the video?  Doing the scary things? Dancing with the fear? And if there is no fear – there’s no growth.  So what are you even doing this for?


The Conclave “learning” experience left much to be desired for me personally – but it really was all about meeting people and creating connections.  And on that level – I found the experience to be very much worth the effort, time and money to attend.  Shout out to all the people I got to meet and hang out with – you made it worth it!

Now  – go watch that video and then – Go make a Ruckus!
