Connect the Dots: Creativity and Workplace Investigations
There is no such thing as “one-size fits all” when it comes to life or workplace investigations. Indeed, true success in each and every investigation hinges on “creativity.” From planning the investigation, digging through documents, and interviewing witnesses, to unlocking those annoying “stuck” moments everyone encounters when writing a report, the ability to be “creative” is critical every step of the way.
Bill Stainton. Bill is a 29-time Emmy Award winning Executive Producer. He is a regular contributor to Seattle Business magazine, and his expertise has been cited by Forbes and The Wall Street Journal. Bill has also authored nine business training video programs used by many organizations, from IBM and Boeing to Paramount Pictures and the CIA. (And yes, the fact that the CIA is actually using Bill’s training materials is a cause for worry!)
For fifteen years, Bill was the Executive Producer of Seattle’s legendary comedy TV show, Almost Live! (which also enjoyed a two and a half year run in national syndication on Comedy Central). Bill led his team to more than 100 EMMY AWARDS AND 10 STRAIGHT YEARS OF #1 RATINGS. Along the way, Bill became a sought after Innovation Driver, working with companies such as Nike, Microsoft’s Small Business Summit, Godiva and Harley-Davidson. Bill’s leadership gave birth to such personal success stories as Joel McHale, star of NBC’s Community and E’s The Soup; Academy Award nominee Bob Nelson; and Bill Nye the Science Guy.
Today Bill blends the business smarts he learned from twenty years in corporate management with the show biz sparks he gleaned from working alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Jay Leno. This combination of experience creates riveting presentations enjoyed by audiences around the world. Not to be missed,
