Trainer and External Combustor
Meet Brian. He believes everyone should have a creative license.
With 20 years of experience in advertising, he has devoted his professional career to big ideas based on true human insights. As a Creative Director, Copywriter, and Strategic Planning Director, Brian has produced award-winning work for globally recognized brands at agencies such as DDB New York and Ogilvy. He has worked on everything from Diet Pepsi to Overactive bladder medications – but swears the two are not related.
And since the day that Leslie first trained him several years ago, Brian has taken his creativity VERY seriously. He’s now a trained facilitator in both Creative Problem Solving and LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, teaches at the Creative Problem Solving Institute, and is the go-to guy for productive ideation sessions, guiding teams through the process to arrive at outcomes including: positioning, competitive analysis and simulations, tactic and campaign creation, and team building. (Of course, since every session comes with bowls of candy, we know the real reason he is so passionate about this stuff.)
In the three seconds left over, Brian is gamely pursuing a Master’s Degree at the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State. What a loser.
