Hosted by the Creative Education Foundation (CEF), CPSI focuses on deliberate creativity, innovation and change leadership. CPSI (“SIP-see”) teaches practical creativity skills and tools in an inspiring learning environment.

The CPSI 2018 program will be announced in a few weeks – and includes a new human-centered design workshop from Tulane’s Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, and an Immersion program from the innovation lab at the US Office of Personnel Management. And we will be joined by many returning presenters such as Bob Eckert, Sari Gluckin, Alexandre Eisenchteter, Dorte Nielsen, Jane Fischer, JoAnna Mendl Shaw, Donna Luther … and many more to be come! In the meantime, check out the CPSI 2017 Program Guide for a sample of the types of programs and sessions you can expect (and check out our video above, too!).

“CPSI serves as a haven for business leaders, educators, researchers and consultants who yearn to stretch the limits of their understanding and practice of creative behavior.”
– Teresa Amabile, Professor and Director of Research, Harvard Business School
