Do you find your strategic thinking or problem solving limited by experience, time and the information readily at hand?  Are you looking for new ways to understand and address challenges in your organization?  Do you see others in your marketplace applying new creativity or innovative approaches you’ve not tried? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, this session is for you. 

No lectures tonight!  Chris LaVictoire Mahai, Managing Partner of Aveus, and her team of creativity guides will be using tools from the published work of mind stretching thought leaders:

- Bryan Mattimore, master of applied creativity and ideation

- Roger von Oech, check out his ‘Creative Whack Pack’ app for your iPhone

- Andy Puddicombe, who demystifies meditation in ten minutes or less, and others.

During this fun, interactive exchange, you will have the opportunity to test out several mind stretching possibilities such as polarities, mind mapping, filtering for cognitive bias, meditation and other ideas for finding more creative ideas.

We all want to define and execute winning strategies. This session is designed to help you ‘exercise your mind’ and provide some simple techniques you can use to solve problems and unlock potential.
