Cummins, August 2017
Alex provided a three-day training on Creating a Culture of Creative Presence to over 35 engineers. How do we create a culture of creative presence? How do we find creative employees? These questions stump executives. They know creative thinking is a “secret sauce” in hypercompetitive business world.

It consists of three integrated themes: Creativity foundations, creativity killers and enhancers, and application. Each theme is based on creativity literature, and is infused with experiential activities, short videos, podcasts, and visual aids.
