I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be the opening speaker at beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf, in May.
I have the greatest respect for Marc Thiele, the conference’s organiser, and I was honoured when he invited me to be a part of this year’s Düsseldorf lineup, alongside some wonderful speakers. (The moment Thiele asked me, I cleared my calendar.)
I’ll be speaking on the topic of Time + Creativity, exploring how time and creativity are bound together. As I put it on the conference web site:
Time and creativity are inextricably intertwined. The more time you make available to ‘prime the brain’, the greater the range of potential creative outcomes you’ll be sure to enjoy.
In short, time and creativity go hand-in-hand.
In my talk, I’ll explore strategies for maximising the time you have available to improve your creativity, by: embracing planned procrastination; shaving yaks; and allowing yourself the luxury of working on ‘distractions’, when you should really be focused on the task at hand. (Those ‘distractions’ are, of course, critical to your future creative success.)
I’ll explore strategies that can double or even triple your time, if you just let your hair down and let go a little. True to my – procrastinating – word, I’ll be working on my talk, right up until the moment I go on stage.
I very much hope to see you there and if you’re attending please do introduce yourself and say, “Hello!”
