About This Class

Impresarios are the connectors. They are the reason we are able to attend concerts, meet like-minded people at events and get inspired at organized talks—as talent and good ideas in the world need to be shared by someone. Author and entrepreneur Seth Godin walks through a workshop covering all the bases of being an impresario—how to start, who to get on your team, and how to scale your connections. By the end of this class, you’ll be inspired to recognize opportunity, assemble your own event, and to be a connector for the rest of your life.

Note: This class will no longer be available on Skillshare after December 15th, 2017. We encourage you to finish watching the video lessons and reviewing the classes resources before that time. Please reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions!

Awesome and inspiring stuff
Seth Godin is the real deal. His courses and books are more than just inspiring, they are full of practical information. This was taken from a lecture at a conference and it's about building a specific type of "impressario" business, but it will give you some interesting ideas to think about no matter what kind of business you're hoping to create. There are some Q&A sessions, which may or may not be as helpful, depending on your background. But still, overall, excellent. Highly recommend this and other Seth Godin courses and books.
