Creative Resilience

"The Status Quo Sucks" -- George Carlin

With the advent of artificial intelligence, logic is increasingly outsourced to computers.
Creativity is the #3 required skill in 2020 according to the World Economic Forum. We are all wired to be creative - just like we all breathe or poop.  Uncertainty and vulnerability go hand and hand with creativity. Build your resiliency muscle as you learn to fail. If we learn how to fail when the stakes are low, we can be more confident in knowing ourselves, our process, and recover easier when the stakes are high.

Firmly rooted in the neuroscience research about how creativity works, and how it connects to resilience. Learn the different types of creativity, and how to jumpstart this essential ability. Identify how to create optimal conditions for innovation, to maintain your competitive advantage, and develop resilience.

Art + Science = Peanut Butter + Chocolate

"You can't use up creativity - The more you use, the more you have" --- Maya Angelou

If you have been told you are a "left brainer" you might be drawn to data, figures, and facts.  Here's a fact - you are also highly creative, and creativity uses your whole brain, including your left and right sides.
Using neuroscience principles, learn how creativity is so much more than painting and performance.  How to apply creative thinking to small innovations, such as a new process, spreadsheet or desk layout.  The study of scientific creativity is examining what differentiates an artist from a scientist breaking new ground.
Identify when to use divergent and convergent thinking,  and environmental influences to set your team up for success.
Above all, reconnect to your curious inner child, passionate about exploring new challenges and never taking "no" for an answer.

Unconventional Inspiration

Finding new solutions is what gets me up in the morning. Don't tell me "because it always has been done that way". Infinite curiosity  drives me and my decisions.  I am unashamedly unapologetic about my varied interests.

My curiosity inspired me to learn the world of e-commerce, spend a day as a Carnie at the Townsville Fair,  perform stand-up comedy, and enroll in a Certificate of professional management. ADHD much?  Not a liability, but a diversified, unique skill set to connect disparate concepts that translate to unconventional yet effective results.

If you are looking for someone to deliver a conversational, funny, and paradigm shifting talk to conservative professionals, without scaring them senseless, then I'm here for you. I have diverse experience (20+years) as a veterinarian in research, clinical practice, teaching, industry, wildlife, conservation and zoo medicine. I have built two websites (three if you include this easy little one). I built and operated a service based temporary staffing business, as well an online jewelry business, starting both brands from scratch. I will help you connect random concepts that will open your eyes to all the possibilities. 

You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step -- Martin Luther King
