  • Tim Hurson

    Sales

    Sales

    Throughout his career, Tim has helped Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 organizations in the US, Canada, and the UK create innovation, marketing, new product and workplace transformation programs. In the process, he’s seen how barriers to creative and productive thinking are also barriers to success — for individuals and for groups. He speaks regularly about how to use the principles of productive thinking and creative leadership to manage change rather than be swamped by it. He shows how organizations can foster a creative working environment, stable enough to provide cultural continuity and flexible enough to adjust to rapid changes in technologies, markets, and mandates. He has written numerous articles on enhancing creative intelligence in the workplace, and is a periodic contributor to Creativity in Action, the journal of the Creative Education Foundation. He’s a faculty member of the Creative Education Foundation, a founding director of Facilitators Without Borders, Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Lessing Institute and one of the founders of Mindcamp. Tim’s books Think Better: An Innovator’s Guide to Productive Thinking (McGraw Hill 2007) and Never Be Closing: How to Sell Better Without Screwing Your Clients, Your Colleagues, or Yourself (Portfolio 2013) are available in bookstores everywhere. Tim thinks the phrase “out of the box thinking” should be put back in the box and buried in a deep hole.
