Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen and Executive Vice President Bryan Lamkin kick off Adobe MAX 2016 with an inspirational talk about the future of creativity and Creative Cloud.
Shantanu is an inspiring speaker. Listening to his perspective, you get the impression he must meditate all day on how technology can empower creativity.
Shantanu reminded the audience of Adobe’s mission of changing the world through digital experiences. He emphatically declared it is creativity of Adobe’s customers that inspires and drives the innovation of their products. Adobe MAX reinstates the thrill of being a participant in the Adobe creative community that is making the world a better place.
The remainder of the General Session was hosted by Bryan Lamkin. He’s a guy Premiere Bro looks up to. Literally. The man is 6 foot 7 inches according to his bio on the Adobe blog. Bryan introduced Creative Cloud 2017, which was released only moments before he took the stage. For each major product update, he invited someone onstage to demo it.
