Hi, Marci Segal here. Welcome to my blog.
My purpose is to free people's thinking so they can create exciting new futures. I accomplish this through blogging, consulting, speaking and writing.
I'm a creativity professional, since 1984. My areas of expertise include creativity, innovation and psychological type with specific focus on people, methods, processes and environments that encourage openness to new ideas and new decisions.
I'm a graduate of the International Center for Studies in Creativity (MS in Creative Studies), have written books on creativity and personality type and have received numerous international awards.
In 2001, together with other Canadian creativity colleagues, I co-founded World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15 - 21 which is celebrated every year, now, in more than 40 countries. It's intention: To encourage and engage people all over the world to use their creativity to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too, without causing harm.
