Virtual Campfire: Jen Guillemin and Wendy Swart Grossman, "Uniting Business and the Arts.
"The time has come for us to stop pretending that we can live in a world that's devoid of our expressive selves. We've teased businesses apart from what it means to be human." – Jen Guillemin
One of my recent favorite episodes of The Virtual Campfire is my interview with a dynamic duo Jen Guillemin and Wendy Swart Grossman, "Uniting Business and the Arts." What do capitalism and the arts have in common? Some might say nothing, but Jen and Wendy have a different answer. They recognize that business needs art and art needs business, and their mission is to bring the two together to create a powerful and balanced world for both. An arts advocate and a creative practitioner, Jen and Wendy are the co-founders of Creative Re/Frame.
They joined me to talk about what it is they do and why it's important. We talk about the importance of combining talent, finding your inner artist, the importance of the creative arts in the business world, leadership, and much more.
"Don't be afraid of people who are different, because that's where the conversation gets fascinating." – Wendy Swart Grossman
