“_________”

The Sound of OPEN Topics.

Hello 2019, goodbye 2018 — start the year with inspiring songs and words from our global thought leaders and us!

 

—  The OT18 Team

—  So here we are, a year into our existence, still very much a start-up. We have learned so much over the past year from our 12 global thought leaders (see below)—and from you, dear reader. They, and you, have been so gracious and supportive, with time, positive feedback and general good cheer. We could just say ‘thank you’ and leave it at that. Or we could take you ... on a unique musical journey!

We’ve enlisted Matt Rockman, resident DJ at downtown Manhattan’s legendary Botanica Bar, to create an eclectic motivational playlist based on each thought leader’s and team member’s most inspiring song.

Now, on to the show — enjoy!
