Cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion in spot­light as speaker ad­dresses joint gath­er­ing

The Oban Times - - News -

MEM­BERS of Lochaber Ro­tary Club, Fort Wil­liam Town Team and Lochaber Cham­ber of Com­merce gath­ered last Wed­nes­day to hear a pre­sen­ta­tion by in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence speaker James Tay­lor.

Mr Tay­lor is an au­thor, coach and con­sul­tant on cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion.

He be­lieves in the power of good ideas. Ac­cord­ing to his web­site, he has been teach­ing a va­ri­ety of pro­fes­sion­als, from en­trepreneurs to cor­po­rate lead­ers to rock stars, how to ‘ build innovative or­gan­i­sa­tions and de­sign the cre­ative life they de­sire’ for more than 20 years.

He is the founder of C- School and host of The Cre­ative Life Pod­cast and tele­vi­sion show.

Ro­tary club mem­ber David An­der­son de­scribed the talk as ‘fas­ci­nat­ing’, say­ing Mr Tay­lor told them how cre­ativ­ity his­tor­i­cally flour­ished in cities which were open to the im­port of goods, as ideas were also im­ported this way.

At ques­tion time, there were dis­cus­sions about how his prinic­ples could be ap­plied to Lochaber.

Past ro­tary pres­i­dent David Mee thanked Mr Tay­lor, say­ing the talk was ‘truly in­spi­ra­tional’.

Mr Mee also thanked Fort Wil­liam Town Team and Lochaber Cham­ber of Com­merce for the work they do lo­cally and said he hoped there would be many more joint meet­ings and ven­tures be­tween the three or­gan­i­sa­tions.
