Only 47 days until Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored conference!

INSIGHT. INSPIRATION. IMPACT.

Innovation is at the core of everything we do. Every day on our website, and in each issue of the magazine, we delve into the new ideas and radical creativity which are upending status quo in the business world; our mission is to determine how and why these changes matter.

At Innovation Uncensored, we turn this coverage into a real- world conversation, where the people on the pages come to you and share what they know. Surprising stats, smart techniques, best practices, true confessions—it’s not just the nuts and bolts of business; it’s the heart and soul. And that’s what makes this event different. It’s a two-day master class from the world’s most innovative companies.

Some of this year’s speakers will include:

Mario Batali, Chef & Author

Jack Dorsey, CEO, Square

David Karp, Founder, Tumblr

Jonah Peretti, Founder & CEO, Buzzfeed

Emily Rahimi, Social and Digital Media Manager, NYC Fire Department

Here is a sneak peek of 8 Lessons For Innovation And Success From Chef Mario Batali

Famed restaurateur and chef Mario Batali took the stage with Fast Company Editorial Director Tyler Gray at our Innovation Uncensored event last week in New York.

Batali shares some of the business lessons he’s learned over the years, especially now as expands his restaurant Babbo in the east, his Mozza Restaurant Group in the west, and his Italian market Eataly in Chicago, London, and other cities.

Here are a few snippets from the conversation:

On Nurturing Talent: ”We don’t hire executive chefs ever. We hire line cooks and prep cooks and wine waiters and busboys and waiters—and they become chefs and sous chefs and sommeliers and general managers and service directors.”

On What His Approach To Italian Cooking & Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos Taco Have In Common: ”Sometimes renovation is innovation.”

On Success: ”If I were going to whisper something into my younger self, I would just say, ‘Keep your head down, work hard, and listen to whosever is ahead of you because you’re going to learn something from them.’ And that’s kinda what I did.’”

You can find all 8 tips here or listen to the audio of the full interview here.
