I interviewed SUSTPACK17 keynote speaker Adam Montandon for an article I am writing on the presenter for Packaging Digest. He is a man of many trades, but his byline for the conference website lists Co-Founder of Factory of Imagination. After consulting the bios and abstracts of the various speakers lined up to present at SUSTPACK17, I had absolutely no idea what the Factory of Imagination was or why Adam was keynoting a sustainable packaging conference; hence, he became the first one on my "wish list" of interviewees. After an almost 2-hour Skype session with Adam, based in Denmark and originally from the UK, I can not WAIT to witness his presentation, which promises to be nothing like what I've seen at SUSTPACK before. Imagine strange, silly, and anything but boring.
Associate Professor of Product Design and Innovation at SDU in Denmark, Adam has given keynotes at many universities and events around the world, including: The Royal Institute of Science in London, Berkeley University in CA, Transmedial in Berlin, MipTV in Cannes, TEDxLinz in Australia, and many more.
He is a teacher, author, event organizer and producer, workshop extraordinaire and life-long advocate of how fun and business can, and should, intersect to create truly fascinating products and experiences.
Look out for the full interview in Packaging Digest, coming soon!
