I’ve seen many many designers, and creatives, and developers, and web guys, and “serial entrepreneurs” speak at conferences, but there are few that are as genuine, as funny and as inspiring as Aaron Draplin.

I was privileged to meet Aaron briefly last year when he brought his Tall Tales From a Big Man tour to Manchester; it was one of the best talks I’ve seen.

Aaron recently presented at a Creative Morning event in Portland Oregon. Take 50 minutes to watch the video, you won’t regret it.

If you have some more time then watch Why America Is Fucked, and for America insert pretty much any country in the Western world.

Oh, and conference organisers – stop booking the usual suspects and book Aaron Draplin.
