Our AAF-Dayton March Lunch Speaker is also the lunch speaker for SummitUp that day.  So, if you're not attending the full day conference, come for lunch and network with the SummitUp attendees.

Todd Henry, noted author, inspiring speaker and expert on managing creatives will be presenting "Herding Tigers".

Doing the work and leading the work are very different things. When you make the transition from maker to manager, you give ownership of projects to your team even though you could do them yourself better and faster. You're juggling expectations from your manager, who wants consistent, predictable output from an inherently unpredictable creative process. And you're managing the pushback from your team of brilliant, headstrong, and possibly overqualified creatives.

In this talk, Todd Henry will discuss the unique qualities that make leading creative work so challenging, the two primary things creative people need from their leader, how to earn and maintain the trust you need to lead, how to protect your team’s time and attention, and how to take care of yourself as a leader so that you are able to bring your best each day.

Todd Henry teaches leaders and organizations how to establish practices that lead to everyday brilliance. He is the author of four books (The Accidental Creative, Die Empty, Louder Than Words and Herding Tigers) which have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and he speaks and consults across dozens of industries on creativity, leadership, and passion for work.

His book Die Empty was named by Amazon.com as one of the best books of 2013. His book, Louder Than Words, is about how to develop an authentic voice that resonates and creates impact. Bestselling author Tom Rath called it “…one of the best guides to living a meaningful life I have ever read.” Herding Tigers: Be the Leader That Creative People Need (2018) has been called an “urgently needed manual for managers doing important work” by Seth Godin.
