CIO Experience Lunch: Creativity for Breakfast – Breeding a Creative Culture

Peter Drucker’s famous quote “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” has never been more true – and needed – than today. Finding innovative ways to be nimble and creative in the midst of one of the most turbulent periods in modern history, (social unrest, political strife, a pandemic) will not only inform which companies will survive, but those that will thrive. The creative revolution has been democratized. The leaders' role to mine and nurture creativity within their organizations have never been more critical than today. In this talk, Mick will teach executive leaders the way of the “hacker-maker” and the gift of positive failure. Mick will empower leaders' resourcefulness and remind them that the business landscape has never been more primed for breakthrough innovations… and quite possibly with the help of some zip ties and duct tape.
