KEYNOTE: The Power of Bad Ideas
Steve Portigal (Founder of Portigal Consulting)
In business and in life, we pursue the good stuff and champion people who are known for their good ideas. But when we place too strong an emphasis on just the good, we may neglect to consider the bad ones. Instead, Steve Portigal talks about how deliberately seeking out bad ideas is a powerful way to unlock creativity.
