  • "Had a great experience today with @duncanjwardle Former VP of Innovation and Creativity at Disney. His radiating energy and awesome storytelling made for a great way to learn to tap back into your creative side.Key takeaways:
Innovation is awkward and if you haven't felt uncomfortable with an idea lately it could be a sign you're not innovating.The best ideas aren't forced and rarely if ever come to you at work. ideas always start out small and you need to encourage the right right space and environment to allow them to grow. Encourage the right thinking and say "yes, and..." Watch your own biases and knowledge valleys, know how to get out of them so you can open to new ideas. Using people outside of your team or expertise can allow for very insightful clues.Learn to tap into your intuition and listen to it. Data is great but don't doubt that gut feel. Everyone is creative, don't' believe the lies people tell you or you tell yourself. We are all born creative, curious, and intuitive. Get back in touch with that." Thank you @justin.bourn for your kind words and for sharing your workshop experience. I am excited for another year of keynotes and workshops meeting amazing people like you from around the world.#InnovationSpeaker #InnovationKeynote #Innovation #Keynote #CreativityKeynote #CreativitySpeaker #DesignThinking #Ideation

  • Like @Nike's support of @kaepernick7 and free speech, and Dove supporting real beauty, I applaud any brand that puts purpose before profit. "It’s time we acknowledge that brands, like ours, play a role in influencing culture. And as a company that encourages men to be their best, we have a responsibility to make sure we are promoting positive, attainable, inclusive and healthy versions of what it means to be a man." There's a link in my bio to the full video. @gillette #TheBestAManCanBe #Leadership #CorporateResponsibility
