I have a question for you.

Would you agree with this statement?

One of the most important things to continuing growing (in business and in life) is to always be learning.

I would bet that you are thinking “YES!” to yourself.

And you would be right.

After all, new knowledge and new insights form the basis of all the greatest breakthrough ideas.

Nowhere is this more important when it comes to innovation and creativity.

If you have been following my work, you know that I place immense value on the proven insights from other innovation and creativity experts on what is working in their research and with their clients.

It drives me to continue improving and helping others enhance their capabilities to develop and execute on their ideas.

In fact, I went out of my way recently to find 50 of the world’s top experts on innovation and creativity research and methods.

Me (Nick Skillicorn) in front of some of the experts I interviewed for you.

And then I interviewed them, asking them to share their secrets on what really makes a difference in making the most of your ideas and executing your innovations.

The real golden nugget secrets.

The ones learned from years of experience, as well as the most up to date research from psychology, neuroscience and innovation management.

The ones which scandalously had been lost behind years and decades of academic journal paywalls, corporate non-disclosure agreements and lack of a public voice.

What they revealed to me was astonishing.

I learned things which I would never have had access to otherwise.

Or been able to learn in the world’s best universities.

And here is the good news:

And that’s when I started to run the numbers:

The video interviews took over 27 hours.

(That is ignoring the hundreds of additional hours organising them)

The experts I interviewed have written over 123 books on innovation and creativity research, many of them bestsellers.

Those books contained more than 37,475 pages.

At the average rate a person reads (which is about 20 pages per hour), these would take you around 1,873 hours to read.

If you were to read for 8 hours per day, this would take you around 235 days.

And considering that there are only up to 260 working days in a year, this shows the scale of knowledge I managed to gain in such a short time.

Now, there is this one thing I need to ask of you.

Only register for this event IF you are actually enthusiastic about taking action to build your innovation and creativity capabilities to the next level.

Some of the insights shared are pretty advanced and will be wasted if you are just looking for some motivational speech saying you can achieve your dreams with zero effort.

Real innovation and creativity comes from executing on your ideas.

And these insights will give you the edge in achieving that.
