About the Event:

Creativity is a hot topic. Never before has it been such a valuable, sought after asset in business; but why? What's the point of creativity? In this interactive session, Darren Dahl from the UBC Sauder School of Business will explore the power of creativity and what you can do to help your creative voice flourish, both personally and in the business challenges you face. Understand your own creative potential and how to make it work for you, in this practical and thought-provoking 1.5-hour session. In the last half hour, Darren will challenge you to think about what creativity roadblocks your organization is facing, and the floor will be open to an interactive discussion between top executives from 5-6 organizations.
