About the series

Life Lessons hosts globally and locally renowned creative leaders from ATÖLYE Academy’s network to share their life stories. Breaking the boundaries of the “one-to-many” talk format, Life Lessons invites the participants to become a part of the story. Participants divide into breakout rooms and have discussions about the guest speaker’s leadership story. At the end of the event, people join in on the conversation and direct their questions to the speaker.
