Ahoy, shipmates! Returning to sea, Bill Olsen is honored to again serve aboard as our emcee, the “Master of Creative Ceremonies”. In the 2011 inaugural Creativity Cruise, he christened all attendees as “Plankowners”, a time-honored and salty tradition reserved only for the first crew. As emcee, he interwove sea stories, traditions, and creativity. He navigated our conference, charting our course ahead… to the future cruise of 2012. Now, he will navigate and engineer us landlubbers into a team, which in maritime lore means “shipmates” and “crew”.
Bill Olsen is a former US Navy Commander, who navigated, engineered and maintained Navy warships all over the world. Back then, he integrated crews into teams and ship systems into operational warships. Now a professional Facilitator, Trainer and Speaker, he navigates, engineers and maintains creativity and innovation all over the world. As President of Olsen Innovations and principal associate in three consulting companies, he specializes in creative facilitation. He has a reputation for delivering dynamic offsites, impactful training and fast-forward change, in achieving strong consensus and transforming shipmates into high-performing crews.
So, set sail and uncork your creativity. Bill’s mission is clear… to accelerate yours.
“Integrated Journeys; Creating more-impactful, integrated journeys”
Presented by Bill Olsen
Consider a stand-alone training class, workshop or creative problem solving session. Perhaps it’s a retreat, a college course, a vacation, a child’s year in school, a book, or the next stage in your life. Is it stove-piped with chunks of information? Is it really, just one day at a time? Is it just one activity, after another, all unrelated… or is it integrated?
Integrated journeys are complex, intriguing and rich. They drip with anticipation to the next suddenly unveiled, yet related moment. It’s, well… complicated. It has layers of stories inside the story, with Ahas that are indelibly burnt deeply into our memory.
Creating and designing a project to be integrated is, well… complicated. But results are much more impactful. Deeper learning. Greater Aha’s! Stronger ownership & buy-in.
We’ll share an integration of several sources from Ship Navigation to Rock Climbing, from the CPS process to Psychometrics, and from the presenter’s recent discoveries in his integrated work with the Walt Disney Corp. PWC, NFCU and many other major clients. Explore this journey, apply these principles, to design, and ultimately navigate your next project to be more integrated, more memorable and more impactful.
