Edward de Bono confirmed as keynote at the Learning Technologies / Skills Conference 2012

The Godfather of Creativity - Dr Edward de Bono

Indigo is thrilled to partner with the thirteenth annual Learning Technologies Conference on 25 January Creativity expert and author, Dr Edward de Bono, will open with a keynote speech on one of the fundamental issues facing business: how we think!

The Learning Technologies Conference attracts the L&D sector’s foremost speakers: fifty different speakers will present at the forthcoming event in January. The conference will opened by Dr Edward de Bono who will deliver a keynote speech, ‘Meeting the L&D challenge with smart, creative and innovative thinking,’ challenging L&D professionals to assess how they think and how to tap their creativity to improve business performance.

Conference Chair Donald Taylor, looking ahead to the opening keynote by de Bono, said: “With economies in turmoil and companies bewildered, the world is realising that it can no longer look to the past to predict the future. There has never been a stronger need for a different approach to business and this opening keynote by Dr Edward de Bono get’s to the core human skill that makes all the difference: Thinking!”

Indigo’s Managing Director Robert Fisher, commented on the partnership and this unique conference: “The Learning & Skills Conference provides a wonderful opportunity for learning professionals from all aspects of the industry to review and assess new changes and think about the way forward for Learning and Development.  We are particularly thrilled to work in partnership with the conference this year, making Dr de Bono available for this keynote, and exhibiting too.”

Dr Edward de Bono is one of the very few people in history who can be said to have had a major impact on the way we think. In many ways he could be said to be the best known thinker internationally. For many thousands, indeed millions, of people world-wide, Edward de Bono’s name has become a symbol of creativity and new thinking. He has written numerous books with translations into 34 languages and has been invited to lecture in 52 countries around the world. Edward de Bono’s special contribution has been to take the mystical subject of creativity and, for the first time in history, to put the subject on a solid basis.
