Next New York speaker
December 7, 8:30am • 501 Union • part of a series on Context
AUDIENCE TAKES THE STAGE
To celebrate the end of another fantastic CreativeMornings year, we would like to once again turn the mic to our audience. We’re inviting anyone interested to apply to be a speaker at our December New York event.
Our theme for December is EDUCATION, so we’re looking for people to speak about anything related to the topic—what you’ve learned, why you teach, or your philosophy around education.
To apply, record a short video and submit it via this form. We’re looking for something raw, think “speaking into the web cam” feel. Your video should be on why you think you would make a good speaker and what you would speak about (this should be related somehow to Education). From these submissions, a few will be chosen to give a five minute talk on Friday December 5th at CreativeMornings/NYC.
The application deadline is November 17th, 5pm EST, and we will announce the chosen speakers on November 24th.
The stage is calling…
We’re excited to announce that Steve Larosiliere will be our speaker this Friday. He’ll be speaking on November’s global theme of CHANCE, as in how he is able to give folks a chance through STOKED. You can learn more about the initiative here and watch his Do Lectures talk here.
Also, we’re in Manhattan this month! We’re thrilled to be hosting this Friday’s event at the beautiful home of Bloomberg LP. They’re located at 731 Lexington Avenue (between 58th and 59th Streets), 7E Multipurpose Room in New York. See you there!
We’re excited to announce that Ben Pieratt will be our speaker this August. Check back here for more information and mark your calendars for August 22nd!
"Busy is a way of organizing your priorities."
— Debbie Millman. Watch her talk.
Calling our NYC community! We just teamed up with the awesome folks at Switchboard HQ to bring a switchboard to our local community. After Mara spoke at CreativeMornings/Portland, we fell in love with the story and sentiment behind the platform and wanted to try it out with our chapter.

Up for hosting an international CreativeMornings Volunteer?
At our last event, Tina mentioned that October 2-3, we’ll be inviting all of our hosts from around the world to come together in one room for the very first time, and well, in the spirit of CreativeMornings, we thought we’d ask our local community if they would be willing to host some of these amazing individuals.
Have a spare couch or room? Let us know!
What if you were only known for the worst thing you’ve ever done in your life? Catherine Hoke asked the CreativeMornings/NewYork audience this at her talk last year. She runs an organization called Defy Ventures that helps ex-convicts get back on their feet and turn over a new leaf.
We’re excited to be having David Kelley, founder of IDEO and the d.school at Stanford as May’s speaker for FREEDOM. What matters most to him is unlocking the creative confidence of people and organizations so they can innovate routinely.
