PERSONAL RESPONSABILITY FOR RISK & CREATIVITY

YOUR INNOVATION ENGINE:
PERSONAL RESPONSABILITY FOR RISK & CREATIVITY

morado

Every corporate organisation recognises that creativity and innovation are the fuel that will drive their engine to success. The problem is that most organisations fail in catalysing this creativity, and so the innovation funnel runs dry. If we are to push established boundaries, challenge norms and solve problems in new ways then we have to change our approach. We have to avoid routine thinking, and it has to start with the individual.

On the 1st of January 2014, Ken launched a personal experiment. Could he do something NEW that he had never done before, every day, for a year? 365 new experiences encouraging play, risk, laughter, mischief and learning. Instead of taking what was given to him every day, could he ‘bend time’ by challenging the routine?

This talk is a highly entertaining, humour-filled tour through this experiment and what it taught him.  Above all, it is a motivational talk on how to stretch the personal time and resources we have and to use it to look at our world in different ways. The central message is that by rewiring yourself to look for opportunity, by stepping up and out on a daily basis, creativity and success follow. How do you expect to be creative or succeed if you do the same things every day? Do more, be more.

The central message is that by rewiring yourself to look for opportunity, on a daily basis, creativity surely follows. How do you expect to be creative if you do the same things every day?

testimonials

  • Ken’s talk at our TEDx event simply blew the room away. His passion, energy and charisma as a speaker really inspired delegates, while his message on our need to approach everything differently, with a fresh perspective, energised everyone. The speech was perfectly balanced in terms of entertainment and provocative ideas, and those who witnessed it first hand were really inspired and motivated

  • Inspirational is a word that is too often overused, none more so than in relation to speakers, many of whom are very good but not truly inspirational i.e. inspire people to think or act in a different way. I had high expectations based on your Ted Talk and feedback I had received from a couple of people who had seen you live previously, and I am delighted to say that you surpassed them all.Thank you for a truly inspirational session!
