Inside the Box:  The Systematic Inventive Thinking Method

Systematic Inventive Thinking allows you to harness patterns mankind has used for thousands of years. In this hands-on experience, Drew leads participants to their “innovation epiphany” so they know what it feels like to innovate in a systematic way. Includes case studies from over 11 years of experience with the method.

Innovation for Leaders: New Behaviors To Simulate Growth

Leaders need a new set of behaviors to create the right environment for innovation. In this program, leaders learn the skills of innovation and how those skills translate to behaviors that foster growth. Includes case studies from global companies.

The Innovation Landscape: What Really Works Out There?

Brainstorming? Open Innovation? SIT?  The landscape is full of methodologies promising to take your organization to new heights. But what does the data say? This provocative keynote reveals the truth behind the innovation industry and shares how to evaluate the plethora of creativity methods.

Innovation in Social Media: Getting to the Next Level

Social media has become the norm.  To get to the next level, organizations need to innovate new social media applications or discover new ways to use existing media.  This program teaches digital professionals how to apply Systematic Inventive Thinkingto social media applications.

The Next Gen: How to Teach Our Children to Be Creative

Many believe that children have an innate creative advantage over adults.  Not so.  Children need to be taught the cognitive skills of creativity like anyone else.  Parents often “outsource” this to schools that are ill prepared to teach.  In this keynote, Drew shares a framework that any parent or teacher can use to prepare children to be more creative.
