Breakfast Epiphany with Alpesh Bhatt

Join Alpesh Bhatt of The Center for Leadership Studies at The Grove for a rousing discussion over breakfast. The topic will be putting your artistic side to work in a Creative Economy.

A lead consultant to Facebook, Siemens, Wildlife Conservation Society and a multitude of other organizations, Al Bhatt invites you to redefine what it means to be creative in a Creative Economy. Organizations expect designers, writers, illustrators, photographers and other creative professionals to naturally put their imagination into play during the 9–to–5.

But, is this always possible? And, what does a robust Creative Economy look like when people show up at work ready to play?

This conversation requires a mix of creative professionals and those who do not categorize themselves as the “artistic type.” Al invites you to explore the notion that we all have something to offer, whether you have been groomed as an artist or not. Appropriately, the conversation will take place at The Grove, New Haven's Coworking Space. The Grove provides a creative, idea-rich environment for independents servicing businesses whose primary mission is to produce some benefit for people and our planet.

Al Bhatt is a Principal of The Center for Leadership Studies, and Managing Director of its Advisory Services & Dialogue Bureau divisions. Al's work is based on the principle that expertise, rigorous methodology and clear problem-solving are not enough to address the needs of the 21st century business environment. He plays the djembe loudly and drinks enough Formosa Oolong to keep three tea farms in Taiwan in business.
