Chad J. Willett is an international speaker, author, and artist who will inspire your organization to not only think outside the box... But SMASH it! The "Box" is our mindset and once you take on a new mindset your creative energies will be unleashed. Your audience will have a one of a kind experience that is funny, engaging, interactive, and value driven.
"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.
The audience experience includes:
Thinking & Acting Different: Groups that generate game changing ideas and execute on them will have a creative advantage over their competition
Transformation: By saying “Yes And” organizations will transform their culture into one of innovation
Entertainment: Storytelling, audience interaction, and watching short clips from TV Shows/ Films that re-enforce the vision and message of “Smash the Box”
