Leading from an Artist's Perspective
Everyone has an idea, but not everyone makes their idea come to life. Following through and bringing an idea to fruition is the hardest part—and it's what separates the leaders from the rest of the pack. The source of ideas, we call Imagination; the drive to make them real, we call Applied Imagination.
This keynote shares the teachings of leaders and peak performers who applied themselves, who stuck to their idea and used it to make a difference in the world. As much as Applied Imagination is a parable of persistence, it is also a lesson in thinking outside of the box, changing the game, and choosing to lead. Your idea is waiting… apply today!

Creative Problem Solving and the Artist's Perspective
