Scott Berkun should be no stranger to IxDA Waterloo attendees, as he gave a talk on The Myths of Innovation at our February 2009 event. Actually, “gave a talk” does him a disservice. Scott’s presentation was entirely based on questions from the audience, and the event was an entertaining dialogue in which Scott shared his thoughts with a thoroughly engaged audience. And the event has a special place in our hearts here at IxDA Waterloo, as a photo that Scott took of his audience found its way into his 2009 book Confessions of a Public Speaker.
For Scott's March 2 visit, the theme is creative thinking hacks, and Scott has again suggested that the event be driven by questions from the audience. To that end, if you have any theme-related questions that you’d like Scott to answer, please feel free to add them into a comment on this post or bring them to the event. In fact, bring your lunch to the event too.
We have a couple of organizations to thank for their parts in making this event happen.
First, our friends at Communitech are bringing Scott to town for their Tech Leadership conference on March 2, and we appreciate their help in bringing Scott to this special uxWaterloo event.
Second, our friends at Quarry Integrated Communications generously offered to host the event at their lovely riverside offices in St. Jacobs. There’s plenty of parking there, and the atmosphere in the recently renovated space is quite suitable for the “creativity hacks” theme of the event.
