I free people's thinking so they can create new futures. New ideas, new decisions, new actions, new outcomes. When I founded World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21 (WCID) in 2001 I had this question in mind: “Wouldn't it be nice if people felt welcome and able to use their creativity to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too?” WCID became a passion project, and now people in over 50 countries take part. In 2017 the United Nations made it a Day of Observance in support of meeting the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Professionally I help leaders and teams over hurdles to transforming and adapting their organizations with the future in mind. I want to include climate issues as decision making factors moving forward. My education: BA in Cultural Anthropology from SUNY Buffalo and an M.Sc. in Creativity and Change Leadership the International Center for Studies in Creativity. Grew up in Toronto, travelled a bit, and now live in Canmore, AB. Love it.
