Lunch / Keynote - Kyle Scheele: Believe in Crazy Ideas
If there’s one belief that is holding you back from getting the most out of your team, it’s this one: some people are creative, and some people aren’t. In the same way that we teach employees how to track expenses, process invoices, and jiggle the lock just right to get into the supply closet, we can teach them how to be more creative, how to have better ideas, and how to build a culture where innovation is a natural byproduct. Kyle Scheele's finely-tuned blend of humor and heart will inspire your willingness to tap into your team's innate creativity and chase your own crazy ideas.
