In his over 25-year career at the world’s most innovative organization – The Walt Disney Company – creativity speaker Duncan Wardle learned many important things about building a profitable business and winning creative culture. The most important? If you want to be different, you have to think different.

As one of the most impactful creativity speakers, Duncan leans on his experiences as the Head of Innovation & Creativity at Disney to take audiences on a journey. Throughout Think Different, they’ll be given a unique set of Innovation Tools and Techniques – the same ones Duncan used with teams inside the Disney organization. These include the breakthrough “What If” creative thinking tool, made famous by Walt Disney himself, who used it to pivot his company from simply an animation house to an entertainment and theme park pioneer.

After this immersive crash course from the acclaimed creativity speaker, your organization’s ability to mine for creativity and innovation will be drastically improved. In the end, your audience will leave with an actionable set of steps they can take to immediately start reshaping your company’s culture, creating a space where innovation thrives, and teams are encouraged and rewarded when they think different.

Business as Unusual

Lessons from a Virtual Keynote Speaker

Now more than ever we all need to innovate.

Everyone talks about Innovation. Take Risks! Be Brave! But few actually know HOW to innovate. So what if there was a set of tools that made innovation accessible to all by making the process easy, tangible and fun.

Built on 25 years with Disney, most recently as Head of Innovation and Creativity, helping Pixar, Lucas Films, Marvel and Disney Parks create incredible new products and services, the innovation toolkit I have created is designed to take the theory out of innovation and put it into practice, by creating a tangible tool kit that everyone can use on challenges big and small.
