Our inaugral event is launched with this wonderful offering to the Wellington creative and leadership community (ONLY 30 TICKETS AVAILABLE):
We're Analogue Creatures
When we were kids we were freethinkers, spontaneous and open; as we grew older and the logical side of our brains kicked into high gear and our non-linear “creative” side became less dominant.
Today, through the use of electronics for everything – smart phones and computers in particular – we reinforce the logical side of our thinking and further relegate creativity to the back seat. We need to reconnect with our right brain, stretch our non-linear nodes, nurture them on a daily basis and, as a result, increase our overall satisfaction with life.
Part one of our session will look into our situation, show how we got here and what we can do on a personal level to mix things up. Part two will open up the dialog for how to foster in an era of non-linear thinking at your company or organization and share some effective brainstorming techniques that can be implemented today.
Originally from Kansas and currently based in Budapest, Hungary, Dennis' work is a mashup of things he loves: strategy, creativity and photography. The blend of these is the material he works with when he helps companies shape their ideas into action.
His journey started many moons ago with a self-designed undergraduate Humanities program that taught him to see the bigger picture with relationships and connections between seemingly dissimilar items. This foundation prepared him to lead strategic and creative marketing, sales and content initiatives for a number of companies in the entertainment and cable-television sector over the past 30 years.
Toss in a passion for creative thinking/problem solving and a life-long drive to create art through photography and you have a pretty complete picture of Dennis. He continually looks for new ways to approach life as art and help others look at life and their work differently. One role he plays is that of a catalyst to help bring out the creativity in others through speaking and workshops.
He is an award-winning photographer and recently launched "Creatalyst" a creative thinking application for the iPad. Dennis holds a Ph.B. from Southwestern College and an M.M. from the J.L.Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. Loves to travel, cook, garden, do photography (obviously!) and tell a good joke. Or a bad one.
