Sponsored by WorkopolisAs children, our days were filled with productive play - finger painting and games of tag were exercises in planning, strategy, design, decision-making, creativity and risk-taking. Kevin Carroll will tell you that if we hope to unleash the creative genius within ourselves we must rediscover the passion and joy that come through play.

As children, our days were filled with productive play. What was entertaining was also instructive. Finger painting and games of tag were exercises in planning, strategy, design, decision-making, creativity and risk-taking. Play was serious business.

So why has all that changed in adult life? Kevin Carroll will tell you that if we hope to unleash the creative genius within ourselves we must rediscover the passion and joy that come through play.

Deftly combining anecdotal narrative with strategies for discovering new and creative ways of thinking and problem solving, the acclaimed author of Rules of the Red Rubber Ball raises questions that are central to our future success: Are we continuing to strengthen our creative brilliance? Do we have the creative endurance to deliver consistent and amazing insight and business ingenuity? How can a business culture that incorporates “purposeful play” impact leadership, employee quality of life, retention and the quest for top talent?

Reawaken your drive and ambition at this life-changing presentation—and leave with a fresh outlook that propels you towards your personal and operational goals.
