Explore the Creative Side of Problem Solving Using an Artist’s Perspective

“Richard skillfully stretches people’s perceptions to see new possibilities and experience how their own imagination works.”

An innovative organization is built on finding better solutions to emerging opportunities.  In our current overactive society – where grand new hurdles seem to produce the same tired solutions – creative thinking is more a requirement than ever before.  And it’s about more than choreographing new dances, writing a novel or composing an original work of music or innovation for profit.  Creative thinking requires a different level of observation – to take a broader and more imaginative approach to analyzing and solving the everyday challenges we all face.  Be that in the office or at home.

It doesn’t matter if you are a Nobel prize wining writer, a school student, or a Fortune 500 CEO; you traverse the same stages of thought to close the gap between turning good ideas into great results.  The best way to do so is by using creative problem solving.

This keynote is designed to reawaken your audience to become a more creative thinkers, so they can:

  • develop and fully develop new answers to problems that once seemed unsolvable
  • become more persuasive in the presentation and marketing of their ideas
  • avoid over used solutions in favor of novel ones that set the stage for even greater success
  • strengthen their leadership abilities and organizational skills, and
  • attain new levels of fulfillment in daily life – personal transformation
  • create strategies for turning change into opportunity

Whether your is in need of inspiration, or to re-evaluate their career with a fresh perspective, solve a complex business problem, introduce a new idea to the marketplace, or figure out the best way to resolve a tense situation, this keynote will present everything needed so that when peers are dodging life’s challenges, you’re uncovering the potentially successful opportunities that were missed by others.

Applied Imagination 

Leading from an Artist’s Perspective

Turning raw ideas into powerful results…applied imagination…it isn’t really about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen.  When inspiration strikes, ideas flow freely.  But, seeing those ideas through to completion is the hardest part – idea execution!  This keynote shares insights from leaders and peak performers on how to push great ideas forward, create incredible art, build amazing business and effective leaders.

Find New Perspective

Embrace Uncertainty

Take Risks

Apply Discipline


Overcoming the obstacles between vision and reality distinguishes leaders from the rest of the pack.  To shift the focus from idea generation to idea execution, so ideas are brought to life.  This is a systematic approach for selecting and launching ideas that will best drive growth and innovation.  Gain the competitive edge by not competing; change the game, lead and not follow, rethinking the rules, redefining the roles and reinventing the game.

Teachers In-Service Presentation 

All teachers are not created equal.  It’s a fact of which we are all aware.  Outstanding teaching is an art form.  There are many really good teachers and then there are some truly gifted teachers.  The key to becoming the most outstanding teacher you possibly can be, is to find ways to engage your students on an entirely new level by using creative methods that elevate wonderment and examination.  Comprehending diverse teaching and learning styles is pivotal in turning everyday classroom time into the kind of memorable learning opportunities that last a lifetime and help shape students from that point on.

Richard Hight combines his experience as an award winning artist, art teacher and renowned speaker and storyteller to create Teacher In-Services that makes his audiences yearn to be the type of teachers that create masterpieces in their students on a daily basis.
