Ford Saeks Speaker Videos Back to top

Demo Video


In his demo video, Ford Saeks begins by discussing things that block creativity, including perceptions and stereotyping, emotions like fear and risk, cultural belief systems and environmental factors. He encourages the audience to adjust their environment for better creativity. “What’s your environment like now?” he asks. “Is there anything that helps you fidget? Do you have any toys or anything on your desk that you can sit and play with? …If it helps you be more productive, or helps you get to the results you want, it shouldn’t matter if you have toys on your desk… I don’t know what’s going to work best for you, but get yourself something… Surround yourself with an environment to shake that up.”

Ford goes on to discuss the two halves of the brain: the right brain and the left brain. “The key to creativity is focusing on being creative when you’re being creative, and not editing,” he says. “When you’re in the creative process, when you’re a power thinker—and we’re all power thinkers… being a power thinker means being able to turn the creativity on like that.” He continues by providing tools to help the audience discover their inner “power thinker” and turn on their creativity.
