I’m Alicia Arnold and I started this blog as a way to share my creative energy, passion for innovation, and musings on raising creative kids. When I first started to blog, I set a goal of writing 5 articles a week with the exception of federal holidays, which I take off. LOL. I’ve slowed down since then!
What I enjoy most about blogging is getting to meet people with similar interests, sharing learning, and contributing to the body of knowledge around creativity and innovation. I hope you enjoy reading each post. Please take the time to share and comment. Oh, and if you want to connect, I invite you to subscribe and follow me!
In case you’re wondering what brought me to the field of creativity and innovation, I hold a Master of Science in Creative Studies from the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State College and an M.B.A in Marketing from Bentley University. I am a certified facilitator of the Osborn-Parnes Creative Problem Solving process and an invited speaker at the annual Creative Problem Solving Institute. I am published on the topic of creativity with Bloomberg Businessweek, The National Association of Gifted Children, and iMedia Connection.
By day, I am an award-winning, digital marketer and use my passion for creativity and innovation to train teams on creativity techniques, develop breakthrough digital experiences and facilitate Creative Problem Solving (CPS) workshops. I am also an author, a mom of two wonderful boys, and someone who loves ideas, learning and collaborating with curious, thought provoking people.
In August 2011, I published my first book, Creatively Ever After: A Path to Innovation.
