Staying Relevant with
Creativity & Forward Thinking
The word courage may not be a word often associated with creativity, but think about it. To foresee change and anticipate its impact, and then embark upon the creative path less traveled, when others embrace the status quo, takes courage. No matter what the task at hand, creativity - to see what others don’t - is what drives great innovation. Carol Whitworth knows all about that.
The Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) is the premier professional organization for people who manage the creation, distribution and utilization of communications media for corporations, nonprofits, government agencies and educational institutions. CMMA’s core purpose is to promote professional development through the sharing of ideas, experience and media technology.
Carol Whitworth is the Founder and Inspiration & Innovation Director for HOME, an employee experience and internal communications agency based in London, UK. Carol brought her vision to life 30+ years ago when she saw a void in the market. She blends creativity, communications and fun to deliver relevant and meaningful communications for internal audiences. Finding this niche is a perfect example of courageous creativity and staying relevant in today’s world. We think you will agree too. So come join the conversation for what looks to be an interesting keynote indeed.

Come hear the professionals discuss trends like archival solutions and optical disc archives. This is surely something you won’t want to miss.
And finally, you won’t want to miss Curt Schwab, CEO of Blue Water, a digital ageny. Curt will present his ideas on digital convergence methodology.
