Think Inside the Box - Challenging the Greatest Cliche about Creativity

I am extremely happy to announce that we've posted an awesome presentation by Mr. John Armato.

He makes the case that true creativity consists of working through a process based on what you know and what you think. It is not a magical art. And he should know! John is a Senior Partner and Creative Strategist with Fleishman-Hillard, one of the largest public relations companies in the world.

Known as a creative thinker, passionate presenter, and insightful facilitator, John Armato helps set strategy, shape messages, and develop programs to inspire people, sell products, solve problems, promote causes, and avert crises.

In this presentation, John examines what an idea is, and how ideas are related to one another. "Creativity" then consists of seeing existing things in new and interesting ways. He talks about how we can build relationships between various ideas around us. So you see, you cannot simply sit people in a room and command them to practice "out of the box" thinking.

But fear not! He does give a great framework for teasing out new insights from the knowledge you (and your team) already possess.

As you consider the importance of creativity within your organization, I think you'll find some great information in this presentation. Whether you apply this in designing new products, sales campaigns, or service delivery, John's presentation will give you some wonderful perspectives to work with.

This product includes a 50 minute presentation along with the slides.
