WHY MARC WAS INTERVIEWED

Darren Robson a leadership and coaching  maverick  recommended Marc Winn to me.  Darren having been interviewed understood the project and who I was striving to include.  Marc is alternate, random, quirky and funny weird.  We are very supportive of each others efforts and regularly converse and share our ideas of changing the world.

HOW ARE CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION RELATED TO BEING A MAVERICK?

“Vulnerability is kind of the birthplace of creativity.  If you’re choosing you’re own way, you’re choosing to be vulnerable and go away from the crowd and that is the birth place of doing anything new and anything different; so those two things are inherently linked.  Innovation is about something new, something different, coming up with different stuff.  I suppose you could transpose the words innovator for maverick.”
