About the speaker
Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, Stuart has called Omaha home since 2004. Formerly a London lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, since 2016 he has focused his time and efforts to Squishtalks, a conversation social practice he founded in 2010. Promoting the art of conversation in the belief that conversation helps us to live well and work better, one significant community project was “a couple of 830 mile long conversations.” In an RV, Stuart adventured for four weeks along side roads and among small towns to talk with Nebraskans, discovering the lives, cultures and stories of people he met.
Stuart’s conversational endeavors include Lives Radio Show on Mind & Soul 101.3FM, a talk show and podcast. Stuart also collaborates with creativity expert Dan Gilbert using design thinking to help individuals and organizations creatively realize their best futures. Stuart’s poetry and other writing has appeared in several literary journals. Although frightened of the open ocean, Stuart did become a qualified skydiver.
Dedicated creatives and members of the Greater Omaha Chamber have partnered together to bring CreativeMornings to the Omaha community. We are committed to building a connected, supportive community where all are welcome to learn and be inspired!
The Art Center includes the three anchor Hot Shops, 50 art studios, four art galleries, and many exhibition spaces.
The studio spaces, which occupy the entire building, are available for artists of all disciplines. A place where artists can work and interact establishes an atmosphere for creative art discourse. This will not only be an energizing influence on development of art, it will ultimately create relationships with other artists fostering a sense of community.
The world is filled with sights and sounds. Midwest Sound & Lighting helps people take control of these senses. Whether you’re having a one-on-one conversation or presenting a speech, music or visual art to a crowd, we can help.
