Everybody Can Be Creative
- When 18 Mar - 18 Mar 2020
2 Angel Pl, Sydney NSW 2000
6.30PM - 7.30PM
Does creativity come naturally to you? Or do you struggle to think in new and different ways?
Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are not magical qualities of the lucky few; nor are they inborn traits such as eye and hair colour. Instead they are skills that can be learned and honed.
In her book, Creativity Rules: Get Ideas Out of Your Head and into The World, Stanford University professor and bestselling author Tina Seelig describes a four-step process she calls “the invention cycle”. From imagination to innovation, Seelig postulates that in learning to unlock this pathway, any one of us can gain the power of creativity.
Tina Seelig is a prolific teacher and mentor. She is a leader at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, delivers pubic lectures around the world, including some of the most popular TED talks, and hosts a podcast helping young entrepreneurs launch their careers.
Seelig advocates that creativity can be taught just like any other skill and with her proven track record doing just that, this talk will equip you with the tools to transform an idea into something extraordinary.
This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas in partnership with the Australia Council and UNSW Art & Design as a part of the event series, The Art and Science of Creativity. Tina Seelig is presented by arrangement with the Menzies Foundation.
Tina Seelig is Professor of the Practice in Stanford University’s Department of Management Science and Engineering, and is a faculty director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. She teaches courses at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design and leads three fellowship programs in the School of Engineering that are focused on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Dr Seelig earned her PhD in Neuroscience at Stanford Medical School, and has been a management consultant, entrepreneur, and is author of 17 books. She is the recipient of the Gordon Prize from the United States National Academy of Engineering, the Olympus Innovation Award, and the Silicon Valley Visionary Award.
