Michael’s performances are an ideal compliment to a wide range of event types and themes, but are especially suited for events that have themes surrounding creativity, innovation, and focus.

Creativity (Skill, Risk, Focus, Journey)

An interactive and inspiring discussion about creativity and the creative process.

Michael’s program is a perfect keynote option for business audiences from any industry background, and audience members regularly find Michael’s talk to be life-changing and eye-opening beyond expectation. Michael integrates his own innovative and award-winning performance segments into his keynote address to provide dynamic examples of his own journey and creative process.

Michael begins his discussion by exploring the process of learning, and how we continue to learn throughout our entire lives. But as one’s life expands, new individual experiences and changes in environmental factors shape the context of how we learn and affect our learning processes. To continue to be effective learners throughout life, we must continue to acquire new skills. Whatever the subject matter at hand may be, we can only truly learn and achieve personal growth by continuing to develop and implement new skills to guide the learning process.

Michael’s discussion approaches the question of what is skill from many different perspectives, dissecting and analyzing skill in various forms and contexts. What does skill liberate in individuals? What are the boundaries of skill?

Michael works with audiences to identify the individual preconceptions, limitations, and fears that many people feel when undertaking a creative process. For any creative endeavor to be successful, individuals must develop an honest approach to the risks inherent in creativity. Before we make the leap into the unknown, we must come to terms with self-imposed perceptual frames. Any well-intentioned creative effort will become labored and unsatisfying unless we can reveal, clearly define, and then embrace our own personal sense of risk. Creativity starts with the desire to question, the courage to play, and a belief in the unknown.
