OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — The Squaw Valley Institute will present best-selling author Steven Kotler at the Resort at Squaw Creek this weekend.

Kotler’s presentation will feature insights and theories presented in his and co-author Peter H. Diamandis’ new book “Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World.”

The event is at 6:30 p.m .Saturday, April 2. Doors open at 5:30. Tickets to attend are $25 for adults and $10 for students. SVI members are free. Seating is limited, early reservations are strongly encouraged.

It all started with a question: ŒWhat does it really take to change the world? “Bold” is about the Œart of impact, the idea that everything around us was made up by people that are no smarter than you. That you can change and influence things and generate ideas and new technologies that can change the world.

Kotler and co-author Diamandis assert that you don’t have to be a technologist to play the game. These ideas and ways of successful thinking can be learned.

The book details how accelerating technology, the power of the crowd and an appetite for flow are the holy trinity of success. This keynote examines how individuals and organizations can level up their game like never before.

Kotler and Diamandis consider this book an action plan, a playbook and a manual for how to go big, create wealth and impact the world.

Saturday evening will feature a motivational and inspirational opening presentation by polar explorer Doug Stoup on the science of flow state in business and adventure sports.

Stoup is widely known as a polar pioneer and ski adventurer (having skied to both the North and South Poles more than anyone on the planet), an expedition guide (leading life-changing adventures all across the globe) and an environmental advocate (collecting scientific data for climate change scientists and teaching environmental stewardship).
