The ability to think creatively is the one core human truth that will remain relevant in the coming era of 5G and artiﬁcial intelligence. Duncan Wardle believes everyone has the power to be creative. Even though the world may be doing its best to inhibit our creative expression, our childhood creativity does not dissipate — it just lies dormant, waiting to be brought back to life.
Leaning on 25 years working with the Walt Disney Company, most recently as head of Innovation and Creativity, Duncan will present you with an “Innovation Toolkit”; a unique set of creative behaviors and innovation tools that will enable you to engage in revolutionary thinking and drive results at work, school, and in any organizations of which you are a part.
