Seattle Breakfast Event
Wednesday, October 28, 2009
7:00 - 8:30 am
Seattle Pacific University (Gwinn Commons)
“Creativity in the Crunch”
Times of economic hardship can cause us to stop focusing on the next new idea, to become extremely cautious and overcome by circumstance. But Paul Graves believes that as a person made in the image of God and invited into God’s creative work, this is no time to ignore that call. His talk will focus on creativity in tough times, and he will offer not only illustrations but some key points to take away.
Principal and Strategist
A strategic thinker, creative director and business value innovator, Paul was born and educated in the United Kingdom, but has lived and worked in the Seattle area for the past eleven years.
Paul passionately believes in his stewardship role through the God given vehicle of design to advance the Kingdom of God in business. He views his role as that of marketplace ‘prophet’, seeing the unseen and breathing brand identity into organizations – as well as marketplace ‘pastor’, walking with clients through the process of design delivery and change.
Paul has more than 20 years advertising, brand, and design agency experience, working for some of the world's most recognized brands. His primary focus centers on the strategic role of design in building integrated, experience-based programs that deliver measurable internal organizational change and external competitive advantage and customer value.
Paul holds a specialist MBA in Brand Strategy/Design Management from University of London/Westminster. As well as lecturing on brand and experience design at a variety of academic institutions, he provides brand counsel, training and mentorship to client corporations and senior executives alike.
Paul has been married to his wife Annie for 21 years and they have one son, Isaac. As a family, they have a collective vision for the market place; their family vision is to be a bridge in connecting people to the fullness of God’s plan for their lives.
