The Learning Gypsies

They are a family from New York obsessed with discovering the best environment for kids to learn and develop the skills they will need in a changing and renewed society. Their inspiration comes from being exposed to the edge of innovation through their daily work. Because of this they know that in about 10 years 75% of all jobs will be done by robots and algorithms and that 25% of all careers will be those needed to navigate that new reality.

So they are traveling the world for 1 year, with their kids to explore and document what they learn. The kids are being homeschooled and that is also part of the learning experience.

They are the Learning Gypsies, a family with a wide universe to conquer!

The Learning Gypsies is a project created by New York based Hazel Swayne and Iñaki Escudero, along with their 3 kids and Hazel’s mom Julia Leturia. Their goal is to find opportunities to improve the way kids learn in the 21st century, and to empower parents to unlock their kids’ potential.

They are traveling around the world looking for answers and for the last 9 months have met with kids and parents, visited countless schools, gotten to know homeschool communities and interviewed education innovators, principals, teachers, psychologists, policy makers and learning experts. As part of their new digital nomad life they are worldschooling their two daughters Alani (11) and Amaia (8), and their son Iker (6).

After spending almost 20 years working as creatives and strategists in traditional and digital advertising agencies, Hazel and Iñaki switched their efforts to help organizations and professionals thrive in a world of change and uncertainty.

Both avid learners, Hazel teaches Zumba, and designs and facilitates digital transformation programs for Hyper Island, and Iñaki coaches executives on learning and habit building.

They live in Brooklyn, Sao Paulo, Austin, Lima, Madrid.

The Future of Work II

For #CRESUM18 we have decided to continue in the direction we took last year and look deeper into the questions concerning the part of our lives where we spend most of our time awake, our work.

We will ask questions and hopefully provide answers.

Why is it that as little as one out of ten people are actually engaged in their job? Is it leadership or the workplace that create this or something else?

How does the ever increasing role of AI and robots impact us as humans? What are the creative opportunities, what new skills do we need and will there even be jobs for all of us?

To find answers to these questions and more, we have invited a number of speakers with expertise in these areas to share their stories.

Welcome to #CRESUM18.



We are extremely proud of our partners and the network that has been built since the first Creative Summit event took place in 2007. And we're always looking for new partners to work with, so if you have an interesting idea for a Creative Summit event or you'd like to learn more about how you can become a partner, please contact us.
