Capitalizing on Creativity: Thinking Wrong, Doing Right featuring John Bielenberg

In Person
During GEW

Creative solutions are not found by thinking in the same old ways that created the problem. John Bielenberg founded Project M on the premise of “Thinking Wrong” as a means of making the world a better place through design. One of their projects, Alabamboo is a growing movement dedicated to strengthening the economic and social fabric of the rural south through re-imagining local agricultural enterprise. By introducing bamboo as a regional agricultural product, Alabamboofosters job creation, localizes production, and sustains clean air and water in the region.
“Thinking Wrong” is all about challenging our own orthodoxies or learned behaviors that inhibit true innovation and creative exploration. It is about generating a lot of possibilities before doing the much more analytical process of selection and execution. What John Bielenberg does best is help companies and their people find the courage and the sense of humor to consider whole new, wrong ways of bringing their stories, ideas, and innovations out into the world. Join us for an interesting and informative evening of “Wrong Thinking” and learn how to unlock the ingenuity in yourself and your employees.
