AlanS.Morrison ASM Media & PR:
Alan S. Morrison spent 23 years as a photojournalist, sub-editor, editor, picture editor, broadcaster and web editor in broadcasting and newspaper journalism before taking his storytelling skills over to ‘the dark side’ of PR in 2011 and starting his company ASM Media & PR a year later.
He started his Open University Business School MBA out of intellectual boredom in 1999. 12 years later it, and the ideas it introduced him to, become his ‘golden parachute’ when his role in newspapers disappeared in a restructure.
The most life-changing part was the elective course he took in Creativity, Innovation & Change. This talk will introduce you to some of the ideas he learned on it and how to use them to leverage your creativity and that of those you work with.
