For the sixtieth year, creative catalysts will gather at the Creative Problem Solving Institute's annual conference. For the second year running, KILN is proud to be a sponsor.
KILN's Chief Solver Gregg Fraley has attended CPSI for over 25 years. Before he moved to the UK (2007-2012) he was a board member of the Creative Education Foundation, the organisation the powers the conference year and after year. When he returned full-time to the USA he returned to CPSI was one of the lead trainers in the CPS foundation course. This year, he's proud to return.
Joining Gregg for her first ever CPSI experience is KILN's Chief Storyteller Kate Hammer. A newbie to the American conference, Kate is an experienced creative problem-solver after years collaborating closely with Gregg on the creation of KILN and a handful of other projects. She has taught the Osborn-Parnes method at European universities including Cambridge University's Judge School of Business and Austrian Marketing University of Applied Sciences.
