2018 Session Description

Writing Freely

For adults (teens welcome) • 45 minutes
Category: Creating
7:00am daily • Court 5
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

Maybe you like to write, or you want to write more. Perhaps you feel the need to reflect on all the things that you’re experiencing at Mindcamp, to collect them and make sense of them. Or you just want to explore your creative potential using words and language.

These are all good reasons to join us mornings for random free-writing. We’ll use prompts and images and writing exercises to unleash the words in you. No need to attend every time, just drop in whenever you feel the urge to write.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Access your natural fluidity in order to write spontaneously
  • Generate a first draft (of whatever you want to write) without effort or angst
  • Defer judgment on yourself and fully enjoy the process of writing
Tim Hurson
Toronto, ON

Throughout his career, Tim has helped global corporations solve problems and seize opportunities. He spent 15 years as a founding partner of Manifest Communications, where he discovered the unique synergy to be had by combining the principles of creative thinking, marketing, and sales.

The result of his experience in both marketing/sales and strategic innovation is the basis for the principles and tools in his books: Think Better and Never Be Closing (co-written with Tim Dunne). He is currently working on a new project: Do it Better.

Tim speaks around the world about how to develop creative leadership to manage change rather than be swamped by it, and has guest lectured in business schools in the US, Canada, UK, Mexico, Chile, and Australia. He is a founding director of several no-for-profit organizations, including Mindcamp.

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