If you agree with Steve Job’s definition of creativity ‘just connecting things’ then my philosophy is you’ve got to get out there and find plenty of dots to join. I love Alain De Botton’s School of Life and they’re running a ‘Business Wise’ conference next Thurs 4th June in central London.
Alain himself will be speaking and the line-up looks really good . The theme of the session is bang-on the zeitgeist asking: ‘How many businesses today really help their customers and staff live more meaningful or fulfilled lives?’
Speakers include Wired’s David Baker on creativity and Leo Burnett’s Chief Strategy Officer on how today’s consumers are increasingly asking big questions about what the good life looks like — and are expecting businesses to have some helpful answers that go beyond the ad copy. Sounds like a useful way to spend a Thursday afternoon to us.
We’ve devised creativity training courses for business for the School of Life in London (see our courses in the creativity section of the brochure below) and they’ve generously given us a ticket worth £295 for one lucky friend of Now Go Create to the conference! All you have to do is FOLLOW @nowgocreate and tweet us! Any retweet or mention that includes our username (@nowgocreate) will enter you in the random draw. There are no limits to the amount of times you can enter.
The winner will be notified by Twitter and will need to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize by midday Weds 3rd June.
If you win and would like to write a guest blog for Now Go Create on what you find out then we’d love to have you!
