2012 Bronze Beacon Awards Event
June 6: 2012 Beacon awards
with guest speaker: Steve Gehlen
”Creativity is Child’s Play: Ten Lessons from Top Creatives”
Join us as we recognize the top communications campaigns of 2012-plus a presentation on the nature of creativity from Steve Gehlen, chairman of the Portland Creative Conference and co-founder of Oregon Creative Industries, a new trade association.
Through his work with the Portland Creative Conference, Gehlen has met and listened to countless high-profile creative professionals over the years including screenwriters, actors, advertising executives, visual and recording artists, and has learned about creativity from such greats as Matt Groening, Dan Weiden, Gus Van Sant and many others.
“The lessons I’ve learned about igniting one’s creativity and the creative process,” said Gehlen, “have been gleaned from years of attending the Portland Creative Conference. I really look forward to sharing some of my key take-aways over the years. It takes courage and risk to tap one’s creativity. Kids understand this intuitively, so I’ll explore that connection in my talk.”
Bronze Beacon Awards recognize excellence in business communication and are awarded to professionals who have proven their communication programs effectively furthered the goals of their organization – boosting revenue, saving money, rallying employees or otherwise contributing to a successful outcome.
