Leslie McGuirk is a leader in the world of innovation and creativity. For over a decade, her workshop entitled THE QUEST FOR INSPIRATION has been changing people’s concepts about what creativity is.
Her belief is that creativity lies in how you see the world, and not whether you can draw or write. The process she uses to “take a blank page and make something out of nothing” is of immense value to others, no matter what their profession. She has developed a series of unusual exercises, which entice her students to see everything in new ways. An engaging speaker, Leslie’s goal is to increate ones’s sense of wonder, and get adults out of the “numb zone” where modern life leads most of us. It is only then that inspired thoughts can appear. She is one of very few artists who have taken ideas about raw creativity into the corporate world.
Clients include: The Golden Door Spa, Rancho Le Puerta Spa, Red Mountain Spa, Wachovia Bank, M Financial Group, Staff Development for Educators, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Wilmington Trust, and many others.
