Get Mo Creative

Have you ever wondered how people come up with creative ideas?  Do you struggle with the intersection of creativity and the processes of your work? Do you define yourself as creative (or not)

Figuring out the meaning and purpose of creativity is a complicated subject. Whether we consciously realize it or not, our every action shapes us in some way, be it big or small, and helps us learn a little bit more about ourselves. Everyone has the ability to do so, it just takes a bit of free thinking and the right mindset to begin coming up with new ideas.

In this session, we'll look into some ways you can tap into your inner creativity:

  • Myth-busting creativity
  • Silencing the “you aren’t creative” voice in your head
  • Using everyday experiences to fuel creativity
  • Using (and not using) technology to amp up your ideas
