Update.2: I’m forced to postpone the lecture. Sorry to do this but unavoidable for personal reasons. The Town folks are cool and we’ll reschedule.
Updated: Only a few days to go – Hope to see you there. Leave a comment – I’ll be buying drinks for a pre-show party. Venue tbd.
For all you locals, I have some great news. It’s been hard to find big public venues to speak at here in Seattle, but I finally scored a big one.
On Wed March 9th, 7:30pm, I’ll be speaking at Town Hall Seattle on Creativity and Innovation. It’s going to be fun, and I’ll be working on new material for the talk. First 50 people who show up will get a free copy of the paperback edition of The Myths of Innovation.
Leave a comment if you’re a fan and you’re coming. I might set up a pre-show happy hour, with drinks on me.
How do creativity and innovation happen?
How do you know if a new idea will succeed or fail? It’s easy (even for experts) to get it wrong, relying too much on wishful thinking and a romanticized understanding of history. Based on the new edition of his bestselling book, The Myths of Innovation, creativity expert Scott Berkun will dissect misguided notions of creativity and provide simple lessons from masters like Picasso, Da Vinci, and Edison, with crossover insights from the latest in art and technology. The first 50 people to attend will get a free copy of The Myths of Innovation. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
