Lead by Design: Gaining the Confidence to Inspire & Influence Creative Minds
Join Johnathon Vaughn Strebly at Creative Pulse on Thursday, Nov 29
How do you go from being a passionate creative practitioner—to becoming a recognized leader in your industry or company?
Johnathon Vaughn Strebly is a leader and an advocate for creatives in Vancouver and around the world. His titles include Director of Creative Services at HCMA, President Elect of the International Council of Design, and the Past President of The Graphic Designers of Canada—to name a few.
But early in his career, Johnathon struggled to make the impact he felt he was capable of. When he stopped trying to make a dollar and started trying to make a difference, everything shifted.
Johnathon realized that he wanted to maximize his impact on any creative initiative, he had to start asking for help from the right people. This allowed him to discover tried-and-tested strategies for acquiring the skills and confidence needed to inspire clients, peers, and stakeholders.
On Nov 29, Johnathon will share some of the strategies that have helped him in his career.
Creative professionals and agency leaders can attend this Talk + Social to discover:
- How to set and achieve audacious milestones (even when you don’t feel ready)
- A cautionary tale from Ancient Greece that will flip your perspective on leadership
- Johnathon’s unique approach to long-term career planning in a rapidly changing industry
Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza—and discover your path to becoming a recognized creative leader.
