OKLAHOMA CITY – Innovators and businesses across the globe traveled to central Oklahoma to share ideas about making ‘work’ better.

Suzy Amis Cameron, a speaker at the State of Creativity World Forum, spoke about an idea for an environmentally friendly school.

Other speakers addressed the need for more creativity in the workplace.

“So not just in what we make, but in terms of the processes, the problem solving all throughout the organization,” Jamie Gallagher, CEO of office supply company Faber-Castell, said.

It is something Gallagher thinks more companies need.

“Oklahoma’s way ahead of the curve and it’s really much more evolved,” Gallagher said. “There’s always more work to do, but that acknowledgment and awareness of creativity is higher here than almost anywhere else in the country.”

Whether it’s the latest in design technology, building from the basics or forward-thinking fashion, some will say Oklahoma can be a great incubator for ideas.

Creative Oklahoma has several educational programs.
