We’ve been led to believe that we’re less creative than what we actually are. We also know that most of us reduce our creative confidence as we grow older, given our fear of failure, fear of judgement or lack of emotional safety, to name a few. Instead of going over whose creative and who's not, in this workshop we will focus on how we can enhance the sparks that enable creativity's inputs to flow in a team, while reducing our blocks, thus allowing for more outputs to come to life. Creative confidence is a movement that needs fostering in order to create new solutions to the problems and challenges that the world so desperately needs.

Max Oliva, IE Professor, Co-Founder TEAMLABS/, Impact Hub Network & Impact Hub Madrid

Max is our most passionate international entrepreneur. He started his first entrepreneurial adventure more than 15 years ago, connecting youth from across the world with Nobel peace prize laureates, scientists, social entrepreneurs and more than 200 Heads of State in order to find solutions to the global challenges of the XXI Century. Since then, his passion for exploring and engaging in glocal projects has taken him from learning journeys to Antarctica, together with young entrepreneurs and scientists in order to experience firsthand and fight climate change; to co-founding five social enterprises, amongst them the largest high impact entrepreneurship network in the world, Impact Hub.
Born in Mexico, Max has lived in four countries and has traveled to more than 60, having developed projects, delivered classes, conferences and workshops in more than 20 countries with organizations such as Stanford d.school, Unreasonable Institute, Mondragon Team Academy, Aiesec, KaosPilot, St. Gallen University, among others.
