7:15 am - 3:30 pm / Multiple Breakout Sessions

Many conferences, symposia, and training programs have been designed with a goal to improve a person’s own creativity, workplace innovation, or entrepreneurship. This one-day conference focuses on cutting edge advice from research and practice for leaders, managers, and consultants who desire to help others be more creative in their work. Attendees will learn tools that all managers can use to improve and facilitate creativity in their employees across jobs and workplace contexts.
