Taming Your Inner Critic
Are you constantly nagging or berating yourself for what you should do, or what you haven’t done? It just might be your inner critic! We all have one, but it can sometimes be hard to recognize it… much less make it work for you instead of against you. This session will provide strategies you can use to identify your critical inner voice and turn it from your enemy to your creative ally. After this session, you’ll be able to:
"Work-Life Balance" is Bogus! What to Strive For Instead?
While there are tons of self-help books about it, Cami explains why true work-life balance is actually impossible. "Work-life balance" implies not only that work and life are separate, but that both parts are always equal and need to be in stasis. This couldn't be farther from the truth! Audiences will learn…

Love Your Talent—How to Get What You Need from Your Creatives
Creatives share three traits. They like doing things their way, they prefer to produce ideas on their own, and they stubbornly go against the grain.

Put Down the Shovel! How to Pull Yourself Out of a Creative Rut
The first step in getting out of a rut is to put down the shovel and notice that your creative groove has become too predictable. You’ve dug yourself into not just a rut but a trench too high to see out of. What will you do? Keep on digging, or put down the shovel and get the heck out? Every creative gets stuck in ruts and Cami has been in her share of trenches in her 25+ years in the design industry. In this hilarious talk she will share how quantum physics, caterpillars and cilantro can help you get your groove back.
Workshop: DIY Branding for (Scrappy) Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs' focus is rightly on the product or service they’re offering, not their brand as a whole. When it comes to branding, they don’t know what they don’t know. This workshop gives entrepreneurs a massive leg-up with a checklist of all the things their brand includes and an awareness of how each can impact their overall success. Attendees walk away with a checklist they can work through themselves—if they're truly scrappy. If they can’t do it all themselves (and I don't recommend they do), they’ll have an industry contact who can help them find the experts they need for a successful, well-developed brand.
