"Brilliantly written and delivered. Funny, insightful, eye-opening, and profound. Such a deep and meaningful message wrapped up in humor and fantastic story telling."
Good Morning Folks,
Since the centerpiece of FSO's value proposition is (re)IMAGINE!, I'd thought you'd benefit from watching Multiple Emmy® award winning executive producer Bill Stainton reveal the truth about creativity.
Creativity is born when two or more ideas collide! Bill Stainton delivers an empowering TEDx Talk about looking beyond our own limitations and collaborating with people that are different than us. What an amazing message for all of us to embrace!
What do Johnny Depp, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and a little old lady from Russia have to do with being more creative? More important, how can they help you tap into your own creative genius?
Bill Stainton believes that when we isolate ourselves from ideas, experiences, and people that are “different,” we are robbing ourselves, our businesses, our communities, and our world of the creative ideas that are essential to solving our biggest challenges. Only by becoming less isolationist—by “cracking our cocoon” and embracing people and experiences that may at first seem “weird”—will we discover the connections that can lead to breakthrough ideas.
Have a look:
Bill Stainton, you had me at HELLO with that awesome opening line, and I was riveted throughout. Brilliant, such a simple and powerful idea to connect different ideas and with different people. My fondest wish is that this talk is shared generously so others around the world can be inspired to connect the dots and make new connections that inspire creativity and make a fabulous impact.
Thank you for delivering it with such flair and passion.
Have a GREAT day,
Mitchell D. Weiner
Chief Happiness Officer
