Your most important “product” is your creativity. Clients and employers expect innovative and creative solutions to their complex design problems and depend upon you to deliver results. It’s critical, therefore, to be good stewards of your most precious resources: your time, creativity, and energy. Learn how to cultivate inspiration and manage time wisely with a healthy work/life balance based on core values and a visionary outlook. 

Dutch-born, Liesbet Trappenburg has corporate experience in sales and management positions in Fortune 500 companies such as Irving Trust and Eastman Kodak. Since 1995, she’s inspired real changes for professionals through her keynote speeches, seminars, and corporate retreats on work/life balance, intuitive leadership, and authentic branding.
