“Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.”


From Franklin Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address, 1933

Roosevelt is often misinterpreted to say that there is no such thing as fear. That is not what Roosevelt was saying – rather, he was saying that eventually fear itself can become a paralyzing force. Fear is real. Fear must be evaluated and acted upon. But what we cannot do, is allow fear to paralyze us.


Right now, there is opportunity. Opportunity for new ideas, new solutions and new connections. We live in an era with unprecedented advantages. Technology has connected us. We can more than survive these days: we can thrive. But to do this, we must be intentional.


Available now, I am offering my keynote “Wonder – How to Overcome Fear and Unlock Creativity”,through online webinar connection for select groups and businesses. Meeting via the Zoom online platform, we will connect your people to an entertaining, thoughtful and insightful discourse on how to unlock your creativity as persons and as a team.


Derek will also perform amazing magic to engage your playful nature, and will share his insight on how to be successfully creative, named The Creative CycleTM. This conversation will illuminate meaningful steps you and your team can take to come through this delicate time with increased potential.

 “Right now, we have a responsibility, and an opportunity. The opportunity is to be really intentional about unlocking our creativity; and the responsibility is to deal properly with fear – both personally, and within our teams.”
