Our best teaching is by example

1,000 pairs of paper with post-it notes were assembled in this fashion, making it easy to place in the conference facility at every chair. Here are 2 of 7 piles…never gonna fit unless it’s drastically changed.
There were seven giant piles of carefully stacked pairs (like the upper left pile) of card stock with 2 post-it notes on each.
Had to undo all the tedious and careful assembly that took hours. The only way the suitcase could fit 7 piles was to collapse the stacks (see 3 stacks now).

Our best teaching is by example.

The Madrid Disney Creativity Keynote speech will be more impactful because the speaker will only be preaching what he practices.

Many will get the reality that the speech is actually applying, in real time, the fundamental content insights the speaker is sharing.

Simplicity is preached as necessary, inspiring, and practical.

The speech is necessary, inspiring, and practical.

Disney creativity has no choice but to flourish

Disney Keynote Speaker
By the time (noon) i got to setting up the trophies on the desk (client request) the lighting wasn’t great.
Disney Keynote Speaker
Got creative to adjust the light and background. Pushed the desk away from the office window and climbed onto the porch roof and shot the photo looking in from the open office window.
Disney Keynote Speaker
Zooming in a bit, from outside on the porch roof.

Disney creativity has no choice but to flourish.

The best kept secret about Disney creativity is our over-focusing on collaboration.

We involve people in ways that would make outsider’s heads spin.

It reminds me how in yesterday’s stories, what was really happening subconsciously with me, is i was involving the event owner in a creative solution.

The easy answer was, “No, if you record anything, i can’t speak.”

But i spent days trying to NOT use the easy answer because i thought together we could “dream, create, and inspire” something remarkable.

Son, you’ve suggested i give others too much benefit of the doubt. Yes, it’s a Disney trait. When you always behave this way, you never have to look back and regret that you weren’t fair and patient enough.

Just a moment in time yesterday. Almost there.

Knowing how i got here and why i was here – surreal.

 

Disney Keynote Speakers
The best way to travel with two backpacks.

 

bicycle locked to bamboo pole
First time securing a bicycle to a bamboo pole. Couldn’t find a bike rack to save my life.

Wasn’t expecting this, but wasn’t surprised either – as soon as i walked inside.

For posterity.

First time showing up for a speech in cutoff jeans and a sweat-soaked tee-shirt.

 

Only preach what you practice.

Not gonna lie, there was a moment of nervous uncertainty when the client and i met for the first time yesterday morning.

So many firsts (risks).

Many of us are hard to impress.

But what went down yesterday…i impressed myself.

Pretty rare.

And cool.
