If you have not decided to register for Tête-à-Tête on January 29th, this may help make your decision for you.

The Ottawa-Gatineau Chapter is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with our Professional Development Partners Ottawa Tourism and the Shaw Centre, that David Usher will be the Breakfast Keynote Speaker for the upcoming tradeshow - in the tradition of providing quality presentations at the show, and in celebration of Tête-à-Tête's 25th anniversary.

David Usher is a creative tour de force. As the front man of the internationally acclaimed rock band Moist, and as a solo artist, David has sold more than 1.4 million albums, won countless awards--including five Junos--and performed at sold-out venues around the world. Believing that creativity and creative success is a learnable skill that anyone can master, his unique and dynamic presentations employ music and video to show audiences the steps they can take to stimulate the creative process at home and at work.

When David is not making music, he is equally passionate about using technology to build new and interesting businesses. His company, Cloudid Creativity Labs,works on a vast range of innovative projects, from building web platforms to creative consulting for clients like Cirque du Soleil, Deloitte, and the Toronto International Film Festival.

David sits on the advisory board of McGill University's Institute for the Public Life of Art and Ideas and is is the founding director of Amnesty International's Artists for Amnesty.

David has a degree in political science from Simon Fraser University and has lived and traveled all over the world. When he's not on the road, he can be found in front of a computer dreaming up something new to create. His new book on creativity and the creative process is due in spring 2015, while his upcoming album will be released in September 2015.
