The Cultivation of Creativity
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
EXPO Stage, Expo Hall, Level 1
Description: Recent studies show that 75 percent of us think we are not living up to our creative potential. So what would happen in retail if we were encouraged to be more creative, cultivated creativity and actually made more time for it? Products we sell might look different, production costs might be lower, and companies could be more forward-thinking and resilient as a result. Join us as our experts lead us to what our collective creativity might realize and achieve if nurtured and encouraged, fed and watered.
