Creativity Council


The Creativity Council provides thought leadership and best practices on the value of creativity – its many dimensions and how to nurture it – including best practices for agency and in-house creative professionals, the move to visual expression, creative technologies, the art of motivating, testing and optimizing creatively, and how creativity is viewed from the C-suite. The group may also address issues related to resources and operations, sector growth, planning and innovation.
