The Buckman Fellowship Presents
creativity expert Jim Link
Wednesday October 30, 2013
McNamara Alumni Center, Johnson Great Room
A recent IBM poll of 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the #1 leadership skill of the future. Yet, most of us of lack a realistic plan for improving our own creative ability. Why? We’ve been thinking about creativity the wrong way.
Jim Link strips the voodoo and mystery away from creativity and reveals it for what it is—a discipline and skill that with some effort anyone can master. With examples and immediate application across a variety of functional areas, Jim will forever change how you think about creativity.
WARNING: This is not your clichéd creativity presentation. There will be no tossing toys. No silly games. No wacky hats. Just the truth about the real work that goes into making yourself more creative.
Jim Link is a creativity expert, new products guru, and author of the award-winning book, Idea-Links: The New Creativity.
Jim will present a keynote address and a practical workshop.
Keynote will begin at 4:00 p.m.
Practical workshop will begin at 5:15 p.m.
