Dear Colleagues,

We welcome you to join us at Virginia International University for our third session this fall of the Voices from the Field Speaker Series!

Our guest speaker, Dr. Chuck Cadle, will be giving a talk titled "Imagination, Creativity, and Ego-Strength".

*        Date: Thursday, November 6, 2014

*        Time: 2:00-3:00pm

*        Location: Waples Mill Conference Room, 11200 Waples Mill Road, Fairfax, VA 22030
What does the research say about the importance of ego-strength? Einstein said that imagination was more important than knowledge. President Obama said that ideas power our economy. This presentation will discuss why pressuring students to have a highly conventional behavior is inversely proportional to creativity and innovation. Attendees will learn how Destination Imagination Programs foster ego-strength leading to innovation and leadership.  This presentation is applicable to education, business, and any field that requires 21st century skills.

Our guest speaker, Dr. Chuck Cadle, is the Chief Operating Officer for Destination Imagination.
