The Creativity Consortium is a seminar, promotions, publication company with an emphasis on life issues of performance, personal growth and creativity.

The purpose of the Creativity Consortium is to form a network of like-minded people who have a message, a product, or ideas that seek a platform to deliver their message and promote their products.
Members of the Creativity Consortium are entrepreneurs, artists, small business owners, anybody who has a marketable message for personal growth and seeks a larger audience. This includes instructors, trainers, facilitators, therapists, and psychologists, as well as fitness trainers, dance instructors, business and life coaches.

How is the Creativity Consortium different from a speaker's bureau or an event planning company?
The Creativity Consortium is dedicated to the limited membership and caters to the cultivated customer list in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. We will promote ourselves through monthly mailings, networking, and word of mouth. This will be a grass root effort focused on a select clientele and limited to a specific regional market.

The mission is to create seminars and products that promote personal growth, performance enhancement and spiritual health.
