Click here for Interview: Austin Hill Shaw, Creativity Instigator
In June of this year, I was interviewed by Silicon Valley based professional, speech writer, and National Speakers Association member, Ian Griffin. We talked about the thrust of my speaking as a creativity expert, how I got involved in speaking about creativity, and my participation in Protrack, a year long program geared to teach professional speakers on the in’s and out’s of the business.
We also talked about my forthcoming book, The Shoreline of Wonder: On Being Creative, which is undergoing its final edits and is due out this October.
Ian also said that I was the spitting image of Ken Wilbur, whom, I’m pleased to say, has had a profound influence on me through his many books on consciousness, including A Brief History of Everything.
Thank you Ian for supporting myself and other members of the Protract class of 2012. I’ve been moved to have received so much support!
