Chad J. Willett is an international speaker, author, and creative expert who will inspire your organization to not only think outside the box... But SMASH it! Your audience will have a one of a kind experience that is funny, engaging, interactive, and value driven. Once the "Box" is smashed your audience will:

- Develop a "Yes And" mindset at the workplace
- Become idea generators where they come up with new ideas, inventions, and services for your organization
- Create a culture of innovation where all voices are heard, judgment is suspended, and collaboration is front and center
- Generate a creative plan that goes along with your business plan to put creative ideas into actions

***KEYNOTE ADDRESSES INCLUDE***

"SMASH THE BOX" (Keynote address) by thinking different! Acting different! And developing a creative mindset! Groups that “Smash the Box” generate game changing ideas that gives them a creative advantage over their competition. Game changing ideas, unplanned collaborations, and creative mindsets lie outside the box… Are you ready to take thinking outside the box to the next level?

"Rip Off the Rearview Mirror" (Keynote address) will give you a hands on experience to live for the only minute you can control which is now. Living in the past creates depression, while, living in the future creates anxiety. We only have this moment to discover our “Through Line” in life by defining our short term objectives and our super objective and when in unison the line is created.

Additional keynote addresses and workshops can be found on Chad's website.

***TEDx TALK***
Discover the "Yes And" mindset which will all your organization to think and act different than your competition. And your ability to think different is what will give you the creative advantage over them. (Talk can be seen on Gigmasters' videos or Chad's website.)

***EVENTS***

Bring a "Live Event" to your organization. Events include the power of "Now."

“Now” is all about living in the present moment. You won't be stuck in the past thinking about what could have been or should have been, or waiting anxiously for the future and what might happen. Rather, you will be in the present moment creating your future one second at a time. Make the most of your talents and abilities by living in the “Now.”

Chad took the time to learn more about us and tailored his presentation just for our group. Chad is professional, talented and accommodating. We held our team retreat outdoors on an unseasonably hot and humid day. This is not the norm for Chad, who usually works indoors. But Chad is a trooper. He not only came out to speak with our group on that warm day, but he arrived early and totally prepared. I would highly recommend Chad.
