The Art of Inspiring Creativity with Michael Fanuele

As a creative business, we spend an awful lot of time trying to persuade each other — and especially our clients — to do the bravest and boldest work.   It just doesn’t work.

Logic and bullet points and reasons-to-believe stick us in a strategy trap. Instead, the greatest work happens when we’re inspired.

In this webinar, Michael Fanuele will teach you how to be inspiring, how to move your team, your clients, and ultimately, your consumers to do the big, brave things they should. Based on his hit new book — Stop Making Sense: The Art of Inspiring Anybody — Michael will share the “6 Skills of Inspiration” that will help you cut through the clutter of over-thinking and make your audience move.

Key takeaways:

– How to short-circuit the over-thinking that gets in the way of everything good

– How to pitch in a way that inspires bravery

– How to show-up as your most authentic self.

Who should attend:

– Creatives whose ambition is greater than their clients’ courage

– Account people who need to lead tricky teams

– Strategists who need to inspire “seen-it-all” creatives
