Keynote Speaker Announced: “The Creative Mindset: GPS to the Future,” presented by Rick Kantor

We will kick off the conference by hearing from someone that will help us open our creative minds! Creativity and Innovation Professor Rick Kantor will dispel many myths of creativity that have dampened our naturally creative spirits and unique abilities to innovate. As educators in an age of fast changing customer preferences, needs and directions, how can we keep one step ahead, to build new quality programs and to increase student populations of all ages? The skills, not talents, of creativity and innovation hold the key.

Speaker Brief Bio: Rick brings a lifetime of creative entrepreneurial ventures to his current work teaching creativity and innovation to university students, organizations, and individuals. In his varied roles as an adjunct professor of Creativity in the Workplace at Drexel University Online, and as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator, and consultant, Rick strives to be a catalyst for unlocking the creative potential that lies uniquely within every individual,

strengthening the creative skills that allow each of us to adapt to rapidly changing realities. Rick was awarded the Champion of Creativity Award in 2017 and he currently serves as Secretary of The American Creativity Association.  Speaker Full Biography
