Tim Hurson
Tim Hurson is an author, speaker, and creativity theorist living in Toronto, Canada. 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 Problem Solving Institute (CPSI) (USA), a faculty member of CREA Conference (Creativity European Association), one of the founders of Mindcamp (Toronto), and a founding director of Facilitators Without Borders.

Tim thinks the phrase "out of the box thinking" should be put back in the box and buried in a deep hole.

Tim's book Think Better: An Innovator's Guide to Productive Thinking (McGraw Hill, NY) is available in bookstores everywhere.
