“Business as UNusual”

Join former 32-year Disney veteran and Innovation Catalyst for his Keynote, Business as UNusual. It is sure to be a magical morning as Lee will challenge us to get outside our comfort zones while we learn the basics of design thinking, innovation mindsets, and creative behaviors that will help us think differently about our businesses. During this highly interactive and fun hour, participants learn some skills to create big ideas, some basic and simple collaboration tools, and some ways of ‘being’ to create the perfect creative environment to grow and nurture ideas. Bring your doodle pad and your open mind and get ready as this experience will be both inspiring and rewarding, but most of all, fun!
