Howdy! Long time no blog. Apologies for that but with all the CNY preparations and work, I hardly have time to well…write. =x
Anyways…here are a couple of talks you should attend if you’re serious about your craft. =3
Turning Good Ideas Into Great Business
@ Multi Purpose Room, B1, National Library, 7pm on 4 Mar 10
Most writers on creativity do not practice what they preach, as the books they publish tell others to be different in order to succeed yet they do not dare to break the mould. Listen to expert author and speaker Fredrik Härén speak on how he doesn’t just write about creativity – but also uses his own creativity techniques. Fredrik Härén is one of the most talked-about names in the field of creativity. He has delivered over 1,000 speeches, lectures and workshops about business creativity, and idea generation to hundreds of organisations in over 25 countries. Fredrik is the founder of Interesting.org, and the author and publisher of the international bestseller The Idea Book.
