Here’s Great Tip: Why Artists are the Ultimate Entrepreneurs | Nick Deimel | TEDxUniMannheim


Here is Something You Should See…


To create something out of nothing that strongly impacts the way we perceive the world around us lies at the core of what artists and entrepreneurs do. While we constantly talk about passion as the key to success, few of us are able to really identify what they are passionate about. Recognising what you’re good at is essentially linked to self-awareness. In this talk, I will share with you what it means to be in a field that you know is your ultimate passion. Working with art and artists on a daily basis, I will showcase why cultural engagement is ultimately linked to perpetual self-reflection. By constantly challenging, scrutinising and evaluating the way we live in the present, artists quintessentially challenge our critical thinking and can give us the self-confidence to carve out our own paths.

Nick Deimel specialises in Post-War and Contemporary Art working for Sotheby’s in London. Inspecting an Andy Warhol painting under ultraviolet light is as much part of his job as visiting galleries and art fairs in London, New York, Paris, and Hong Kong to look at new and emerging artists. Prior to joining Sotheby’s, Nick worked for a gallery in Berlin and founded “ND Projects” in London, an independent project space that developed and curated site-specific projects with emerging artists. Nick holds a BSc in Business Administration from the University of Mannheim and Tel Aviv University as well as a MSc in Management & Strategy from LSE.
