Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How could an event that happened over 70 years ago teach you valuable lessons about creativity and innovation for today’s unpredictable world? To thrive in the coming years you must prepare for an unknown future using skills and technology not yet developed to meet challenges not yet defined. Sound impossible? History, however, is full of people doing the impossible. 

Using the Allied invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944 as an example, this workshop will explore specific stories from D-Day and the lessons you can apply in your own life. Through this historical event you will discover a dynamic roadmap to navigate the world today.  You are invited to explore a specific challenge you are currently facing so as to stimulate creative thinking and innovation. Discover how the liberation of Europe can also be a source for your personal liberation.  

Weaving storytelling with interactive discussions, drawing & quiet reflection, this will be a dynamic workshop in which each participant will gain new perspective on current personal challenges.
