Creative Trespassing: how to sneak more imagination into your work and get more done.

After years of smuggling creativity into the corporate sector without getting busted, Tania has learned that we don’t need to be in a job that is distinctly creative in order to be distinctly creative in our job. In fact, no matter how tedious the task, or how buttoned-up the office environment, we can all learn to conjure imagination anywhere, anytime.

How? By choosing to stand out rather than fit in.

Full of hilarious stories, wacky, battle-tested exercises for flexing your creative muscles and PowerPoint slides like “Fire Hierarchy,” and “Transform the Norm,” you will leave this talk with tools and strategies for taking more creative risks, leading with more imagination, facing fears and embracing obstacles as an opportunity to accelerate growth, and the ability to find inspiration where others see only limitations.
