Why: In a 2010 IBM report 60% of CEO’s listed “Creativity” as their  
number one leadership skill. Creativity drives business and adds value to  
both customers and the bottom line. Everyone agrees on the importance of  
having creative thinkers in their organizations. However most people don’t  
know what to do with or how to fully utilize these talented people once they  
have their team together. The real challenge comes in knowing how to lead  
creative people. How do you harness their talents and keep them on track with  
the goals of the company? How can you foster the right environment that  
encourages new ideas? Join us for an interesting and informative evening  
exploring these questions.
