Pekka Salokannel and CHANGE

Our this months speaker, Pekka Salokannel, is not only an amazing 3D pioneer but also a regular attendee of CreativeMornings/Helsinki.

Having inhabited the richly varied worlds or industrial design, education and the broader ‘maker’ community our clever speaker Pekka Salokannel knows a thing or two about these perpetually shifting sands. He opens interesting doors to us about the exponential nature of growth in this digital age and how change polarises populations. 

Come to Design Museum on Friday the 18th and hear Pekka explain why the only real constant we know is change. Maybe he’ll even share some tools to help us plot the ‘path to now’. It will be all about CHANGE. Welcome! 

Our global community keeps on growing

We at CreativeMornings/Helsinki are so proud to be part of the growing CreativeMornings family! 

Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome. 


This month’s theme is ETHICS and our speaker has founded a company called Ethica - a bit of an obvious choice, you may think. Anne Raudaskoski’s path however isn’t obvious at all: she is a modern dancer turned sustainability consultant. How did that happen?

Come and listen how she challenges us to be ethical not only at work but also off duty. At 8.30AM on 26th of February at Design Museum. 



The second theme of this year is ETHICS. Who will talk to us about ethics? That will be shared later during this month.

The event begins at 8.30AM on February 26th at Design Museum.

We are stoked to tell that in our this year’s first CreativeMornings/Helsinki we will have SIGNMARK talking about LANGUAGE.

Signmark, Marko Vuoriheimo, fell in love with music when he was 8 years old and started translating Metallica, Bon Jovi and New Kids On The Block into sign language. Today he is the first deaf musician to sign a record deal with a major music label. But Signmark isn’t just about music. It’s an idea, a cause, to make the world a better and more accessible place for those deaf or hard of hearing.

Come and listen to the story behind Signmark January 29th 8.30-10.00AM at Design Museum.


This January’s CreativeMornings/Helsinki starts at 8.30AM on Janaury 29th at Design Museum. We’re excited to announce the speaker very soon!


The theme of this month, Language, was illustrated by Ryan Hamrick and chosen by our fellow CreativeMornings people at Pittsburgh. The global sponsor of the month is MailChimp.


Our last event of 2015 is spent with Janne Kareinen, who will talk about our month’s theme, TIME.

Janne’s advice to all of us is:“You have to divide responsibility and power. You really have to hand it over to others and not try and control. When individual groups do stuff they enjoy things actually move forward and people don’t end up burned out and bitter.”Come and hear more tips from him on Friday the 18th of Dec 8.30am at the Design Museum.

Time flies as we are already celebrating the last theme of 2015 – TIME.

NEXT #CMhel event on the 18th of December at the Design Museum, 8.30am. Speaker will be announced soon ;)

November: WORK with Heidi Gutekunst

This week Friday, the 27th of November, we will hear a talk about our month’s theme WORK from Heidi Gutekunst.Register for the event here.

Changing WORK means changing the world.

Only 57% of employees in Europe are engaged in their work. Heidi Gutekunst sees a huge potential in changing it. In order to make a change, both changing outdated structures and developing better leadership capacities play a big role.

When Heidi Gutekunst worked as a CEO she did not have any formal leadership education. Her decisions were made by listening into the moments and acting out of intuition. Years later she heard about transforming leadership and found a framework for her thinking.

This inspired her to found a social enterprise, Amara Collaboration, together with three other people, from Lithuania, the UK and USA. Their vision is to double the amount of leaders with transformational capacity worldwide in 25 years.
