Last night (July 17, 2018), I spoke to a group of about 70 energetic, engaged (mostly) women at the Future Females: Berlin, Thinking Creatively & Thinking Bigger event.
What an honour and a privilege to talk to them about creativity and how to increase it’s presence in both our professional and personal lives.
I shared 4 different creativity activities with them, 1 was an improv activity, and the other 3 were drawing, as well as some background and context information about creativity.
I usually speak with much smaller groups, so this was a great learning opportunity for me, but despite my “learning on the job” or maybe because of it, we had a great time, some good discussion, and some fun trying new activities.
Thank you to all who came out and tried something new!
I have posted my slides on Slideshare, if anyone is interested.
Age of Artists published an excerpt from the KM Matters book that I mentioned in my previous post:
How a Creative Mindset can be Adopted in our Organizations
I wrote a chapter on innovation and creativity and how they connect to knowledge management for the book, Knowledge Management Matters: Words of Wisdom from Leading Practitioners, which was published early in 2018.
There’s a free PDF available here: http://www.johngirard.net/kmmatters/
As well, there is a video and a podcast of me talking about the chapter.
Let me know if you’d like to apply some of the ideas I discuss in the chapter to your organisation or your personal situation.
