About this talk
Particularly in the creative world, there is a stigma around self-marketing. Many of us believe that our talents should speak for themselves. On the contrary, Behance founder Scott Belsky argues that we must take it upon ourselves to ensure that others recognize our strengths. Editor’s Note: The Joshua Bell experiment Scott mentions was conducted by the Washington Post.
