  • Roger von Oech, Creative Think, Menlo Park, California, USA
  • One of the chief things that prevent most of us from being more creative is that we become "prisoners of familiarity.” The more often we do something in the same way again and again, the more difficult it is to think about doing it in any other way. We get locked into how we are already doing it. Thus, sometimes we need a good jolt to our mental apparatus — "a whack on the side of the head" — to force us out of routine patterns and to look for fresh approaches. Roger has found that successful creative thinkers adopt different type of thinking at different stages of the creative process. He recommends thinking like an Explorer, Artist, Judge and Warrior. The Explorer is your role for looking for new information. As an Artist, you play with the idea to create something new. As a Judge, you decide if the idea is worth implementing. And, as a Warrior, you carry your idea out into the world and make it happen. The session will be fun, upbeat and interactive. Some of the main points include: "Look for the Second Right Answer," "Change Your Question," "Borrow from Other Industries," "Shift Perspectives," "Challenge the Rules," "Solve the Right Problem," "Ask a Fool," "Be Dissatisfied" and "Get Rid of Excuses.” There will also be a final exam at the end of the session. Roger van Oech is an internationally recognized leader in stimulating creativity, and his seminars have enriched the creativity of many millions around the world. He has worked with such organizations as AT&T, Apple, CBS, Coca Cola, GE, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, MTV, Mattell, Microsoft, NASA, National Geographic, Nestle, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, SONY and the Unites States Olympic Swimming Team. In addition, he is the author of best-selling creativity classics, such as A Whack on the Side of the Head, A Kick in the Seat of the Pants and Expect the Unexpected.

  • The purpose of this session is to share how the QRCA Task Force undertook the deliberations that led to our fi nal recommendation: that in the best interest of members and the association, this is not the time for QRCA to pursue the credentialing process. Instead, QRCA can achieve more for us and for our industry by concentrating on other objectives.
  • Members deserve to know, fi nally, why and how — through an intense year of study, analysis, reasoning and extended deliberation — this Task Force reached its conclusion through consensus.

  • We will address several common technology-related issues, such as staying connected on the road, what to do before your hard drive crashes, how to turn your talk into text, adding still images to your reports, and once you have those beautiful huge multi-media reports, how to get them to your client. We will also review the latest and greatest technologies to help you in the fi eld, in the offi ce and on the road.
  • For each tool or technology, we will cover what it does, why you should care, considerations if you decide to purchase it and how much it generally costs. Where practical, we will provide a live demonstration of the technologies and include time at the end for members to show and tell their favorite technology.

  • Join this session to learn about getting yourself a seat in the room, analyzing what you see and hear and turning all this grassroots discussion into unique insights for your clients and into a revenue stream for yourself. We will share our experience in conducting “Web scans” (the technical term for sitting down in this digital focus group) for clients. We will answer questions around why to propose this, what to outsource and what to do yourself, how to fi nd content online and how to conduct an analysis, and what to consider on whether to insert yourself into the discussions or merely lurk behind the mirror.
