John Cleese– Waking Us Up!

I thought I’d share the closing video that we used at the end of our ECIS 2009 keynote. It’s John Cleese doing a presentation at a Creativity Conference:

There are several things I find fascinating about this presentation. First, much of the advice and even examples he gives are exactly what I taught to college students 17 years ago. Second, he rightly highlights the independent importance of the human creativity process that may best flourish entirely separately from technology and interruptions. Finally, he closes with a statement about how creativity can be seen as a threat, especially by leaders who are themselves very poor at creative thought and appreciating the creative process. Cool stuff.
