Creativity and innovation seminar

Creativity Plus is a unique creativity and innovation seminar experience.

Your Trainer 

Alexander Van Buren is the president and senior trainer at Skill Builder Seminars LLC. 

His first behavioral modeling project was conducted over 19 years ago.

Determined to elicit the structure of creativity in detail, he read Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks every day for two years, while reverse engineering Walt Disney’s creative process in detail.

The project loosed a flood of creative ideas and led to 18 years of formal behavioral modeling projects, over 200 original models and dozens of therapeutic interventions.

His original interventions have been published in Anchorpoint magazine, The Sourcebook of Magic, (Crown House Publishing) and the Big Book of NLP.

Van Buren has been a featured presenter at the Stanford Executive Program Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.

This training includes his original mind map and a process called The Disney Creativity Diamond™ – a step by step method for generating, evaluating, planning and implementing new ideas and innovative strategies.
