Innovation Main Stage: Mick Ebeling
Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)
When’s the last time you looked at a seemingly insurmountable societal challenge and said with total confidence, I can fix that?
For Mick Ebeling, that’s just an average day. Whether it’s helping a paraplegic artist create again, printing limbs for amputees in war-torn countries, or enabling deaf people to experience the awesome power of music, Mick’s philosophy is simple: say yes to the challenge and then figure it out. No matter what. And he’s got the perfect brand to match his approach. As the founder of Not Impossible Labs, Mick and his team identify the impossible for one person. That’s right: one person. By helping that one person overcome and then telling their story, that intervention scales up to transform lives everywhere.
Recently named by Fortune Magazine as one of the Top 50 World’s Greatest Leaders, a recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and listed as one of the world’s most influential creative people by The Creativity 50’s, Mick Ebeling has sparked a movement of pragmatic, inspirational innovation. On the Main Stage, Mick will introduce his latest project, Hunger: Not Impossible, which aims to eliminate food insecurity in the United States by connecting those in need to a free, convenient and nutritious meal, all through a simple text message.
