Join Keri Miller, international award-wining Partner & Chief Creative Strategist of e=mc² events and Reid Hubick, Experience Producer at e=mc² events in this power-packed interactive and inspiring session that will have you thinking differently about your next projects!
We are all creative, we all have the abilities and skills to develop great ideas and as individuals, we all have a unique perspective that can set us apart from everyone else in the world. In our technology-driven world we are at a critical point of losing our natural ability to dream, create, and develop our own ideas. The “see more like this” movement is killing our creativity, slowly, one pin, one search, and one insta-worthy image at a time.
In 2014 at TSE Keri revealed her Pink Poodle Theory and shared with event profs the Aha! moment that founded it. In 2017 at TSE the inspiring “What Would Vogue Do” sessions sparked a movement of old school creative thinking and trend setting in events.
Pink Poodle 3.0 (a reimagined version of the original Pink Poodle presentation) combines those sessions in an interactive workshop will reset how you think about curating inspiration, and will give you tactical tools to discover emerging trends from your creative mind. It will challenge you to really see what is in front of you, around you and to find inspiration in new ways. Come prepared to clear your mind and find some simple inspiration to fuel your creative juices as YOU dream up your next big event idea!
