Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem and Make the Best Decisions Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem and Make the Best Decisions

Presenter: Mike Roberto

Many leaders claim that creativity is a top priority today because they desperately seek growth and renewal for their enterprises. However, creative individuals working in organizations often encounter resistance to new ideas, much as the path-breaking artists, scientists, and inventors have experienced throughout history. These firms do not lack talented people with original ideas. They lack an environment in which these people can flourish. Best-selling author and scholar Michael Roberto presents a thorough investigation of organizational obstacles to creative thought. Highly relevant to the growth crises many enterprises face in today's economic landscape, this session examines how to break barriers to spark creativity and foster new ideas.

Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World

Presenter: Cal Newport

Most of us are rapidly becoming digital maximalists due to our inability to untether ourselves from the heavy use of devices such as smartphones. Cal Newport, associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University and the author of five books, including Deep Work, will introduce the concept of digital minimalism, a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives. Cal will explain how common-sense tips such as turning off notifications or occasional rituals like observing a digital sabbath don't go far enough in helping us take back control of our technological lives while the demands of family, friends and work complicate attempts to unplug completely.
