Two days in Hasselt….Two days out of this world.
An amazing setting, good production, fantastic people and great line-up would round-up this Creativity World Congress 2011 in Hasselt. The people of FlandersDC did a great job of programming great speakers, and nice break-out work shops. But after this 2 days everything should be placed in perspective….so a brief round-up on with I heard and more so what I will remember of this World Creativity Forum 2011.
This round-up is a get together of quotes and a summary of great speakers as Jimmy Wales (@Jimmy_Wales), Peter Hinssen (@hinssen), Alexander Osterwalder (@business_design), Keith Sawyer, Malcolm Gladwell, Scott Belsky (@scottbelsky), Jamie Anderson, Garr Reynolds (@presentationzen) and Oliver Stone.
- Failure is necessary
failure is the key to a creative success. If you never fail, you can never be creative.
- Collaboration drives creativity
Working in a team gives a more creative outcome then working alone.
- Tweak instead of invent
Don’t be the first on the market. It’s better to learn from other ones mistakes and make them better….be creative with existing stuff.
- Organisation is necessary for creativity
Organise yourself, your work environment to be creative…bring structure into your creative process.
Surround yourself with creative inputs/actions
- Disconnect to create
Log off, go analog and disconnect from the online world so you can create in real-time (f.i. with pen and paper, post-its, …).
Log on in a second phase of the process
- Keep it simple and visualize it!
Next years Creativity World Forum will be hosted in Rio De Janeiro (Brazil)…see if I can get tickets for this as well!
