Session Description:

Communication today is sprinkled with new terms like connectivity creep, screenagers, technological abuse, The Influencers, and digital detox. In a world where letter have become antiques, phone calls archaic and screen time is up to 11 hours each day, it’s time to encourage an unusual model of personal and professional interaction to bring more “real” time to our relationships. For over 30 years, I have assigned Creative Dates and have watched as memories were forged and paradigms of the typical “date” were reshaped. Using lessons from the Creative Date model, contemplation, creativity and meaningful connections can result in improved personal and professional relationships.
