What did Disney spend his time doing while growing up? Well, working -- but also drawing, from an early age. He was pretty young when he sold his first drawing (of a neighbor's horse). Disney launched several unsuccessful animation companies before coming up with Mickey Mouse in 1928.
What if, upon graduating from college, grad school, or even high school, you had the opportunity to sit down with thirty of the world's most fascinating and accomplished leaders and have an intimate talk?
A Festival like Oppi 2015 would have been a magnet for me, i.e. a chance to experience the world's greatest thinkers debate
