About the Event
The Art of Having No Idea - An interactive talk
A creative take on life and work that will leave you relaxed, curious and excited
In this difficult and transformative time, our careers, our businesses and the world we live in have never been more in need of fresh thinking. What motivates us? When do we have our moments of genius? How could this all be easier? Laurence has spent much of his life asking these questions. His conclusion: Using the thoughts you already have to create a new world is like hoping the same old puzzle pieces will make an entirely new picture. Instead we go into the ‘no idea space’, what David Lynch calls ‘catching the big fish'.
A guide to life, the universe and everything wrapped up as a workshop on creativity - and a provocation to look at the world of work in a completely new way.
