Shanghai, China

The cities I spoke in during October 2012 are as different as the clients that I had.

Nike Foundation, Keppel Group, Stoli, Pacific Basin, IKEA and Wikborg, Rein & Co.

In one month I got to learn about how Nike is supporting girls in Africa, how a off shore company is reshaping its training, what the future of premium vodka looks like, how the shipping industry is handling its crises, how a furniture company is trying to work differently with its suppliers and how a foreign law firm looks at the future of China.

The great thing with being a speaker is not only that you get to inspire people to be more creative, you also BECOME more creative and inspired by learning from so many different industries.

(Picture from a former school in Portland that had been rebuilt to a conference hotel and where NIKE had put their conference that I was speaking at.)

Guest Book: One way to use The Idea Book

Albert, a fan of The Idea Book, wrote and told us about how he is using The Idea Book as guest book in his home where visitors are invited to write something creative on the white pages. Great Idea.
