Trial by Fyre Festival: My MBA in Crisis Management


Dylan Hattem

DS Projects

Fyre Festival was sold as an exclusive, two weekend party in the Bahamas, but turned out to be one of the biggest flops in pop culture history. Within months of launching his creative agency, Dylan Hattem got the call of a lifetime, or so he thought -- an opportunity for his team to create all of the Festival's photo and video content.

Dylan will share insight into the challenges, drama and lessons learned -- most importantly, keeping his reputation intact through the entire ordeal.
