Creative Group, Inc., a performance improvement company, today announced that Courtney Spero, Marketing Communication Specialist, has been awarded a scholarship worth over $5,000 to attend the College of Extraordinary Experiences.
“As an organization with a mission to help people reach their full potential and thrive, it’s great to see employees take their passions and career aspirations into their own hands,” said Janet Traphagen, President, Creative Group. “Our goal is to create business-changing experiences using meetings, events and incentives. This event will provide the perfect opportunity to see what leading experience creators in the publishing, film and gaming industries are doing.”
Calling itself “a school unlike any other in the world”, the College of Extraordinary Experiences aims to create an unforgettable hands-on learning environment for the participants. Students come from different fields, including top executives, university luminaries, military instructors and more. Together, they will learn how to design and stage memorable experiences as an alternative thinking method to traditional business development.
Taking place from November 10-13, 2016, in the Czocha Castle in Poland, the College of Extraordinary Experiences can be considered an “unconference” for those familiar with trends in the meetings industry. Instead of being lectured to, participants will help create the content and outcome of this conference. The inaugural College has a long list of distinguished “Professors” in different fields. Among these is Mark Ordesky, executive producer, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Kim Wylie, global lead for change and transformation, Google; B. Joseph Pine II, author, The Experience Economy and Sara Thacher, creative lead, Walt Disney Imagineering R&D.
“We are happy to bring Courtney on board as a scholarship recipient due to her resolve and commitment to understand experience design,” says conference organizer, Paul Bulencea.
