The next thing now is back on October 21st with Tom Kelley and Pam Henderson!
IDEO'S TOM KELLEY
What do you get when you put smart speakers with smart ideas in front of a smart audience? You get the Next Thing Now, and it's coming (back) to Wilmington on October 21, 2013 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. Few people have Tom Kelley’s depth of experience managing innovation and design. Working with his brother, IDEO founder David Kelley, Tom has helped manage the firm as it has grown from 20 designers to a staff of more than 500. IDEO has proven over and over that everyone can contribute creatively to a project, and that innovation can be made a cultural way of life in an organization. Tom has mastered the methods for bringing about this kind of change.
About Tom's new book, Creative Confidence:
Too often, companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation are the domain of the "creative types." But two of the leading experts in innovation, design, and creativity on the planet, David and Tom Kelley shows us that each and every one of us is creative. In an incredibly entertaining and inspiring narrative that draws on countless stories from their work at IDEO, the Stanford d.school, and with many of the world's top companies, the Kelley brothers identify the principles and strategies that will allow us to tap into our creative potential in our work lives, and in our personal lives, and allow us to innovate in terms of how we approach and solve problems. It is a book that will help each of us be more productive and successful in our lives and in our careers. You can buy tickets for the Next Thing Now by clicking this link...
