The Greater Des Moines Partnership (formerly the Des Moines Chamber of Commerce) on September 21st will offer a Carnival of Creativity. This three-hour workshop is designed to unleash the creative spirit within your organization. The event will feature breakout sessions that focus on creative opportunities in branding, leadership, learning and communication. Charlie and Maria Girsch of Creativity Central will deliver the keynote address on the A.C.T. (attitude, commitment and tools) program.Webster: in it's second definition, defines carnival as
a : an instance of merrymaking, feasting, or masquerading b : an instance of riotous excess
Being of German heritage I grew up in a world of "if you ain't suffering, you're not getting anywhere". This was later fortified by a variety of coaches who railed, "Girsch, no pain, no gain".
Well folks, PAIN isn't the only way to GAIN. I married a Bohemian Princess who challenged my Teutonic ways while teaching me how to play in a very PRODUCTIVE manner. AND indeed we did quite well as professional toy inventors.
Carnival of Creativity honors that reality in offering a fun filled morning of "speed learning" in an inventive creative manner - we call our brand of Creativity Inventivity. So it is that we will convene at the ball park and with the help of our Partners in Creativity:
- Mike Sansone - Communications
- Mike Wagner - Branding
- Victor Aspengren - Leadership
- Frank Bell - Learning
And wait for the legendary call "PLAY Ball!!"
BTW: I know the keynoters and might be able secure a few "special" tickets if that would help your decision to join us.
