Blair's gift for facilitation and teambuilding grew from his early years as a classroom teacher and Outward Bound instructor. Those experiences inspired him to pursue a Master’s of Science degree in Creativity, Innovation and Change Leadership from the State University of New York. Today, the business that bears his name considers both the head and the heart when approaching innovation and the enrichment of both the workplaces and bottom lines of clients. Over the course of more than two decades, Blair has served numerous Fortune 500 companies, including Aegon, Avon, Cadbury Schweppes, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Coca-Cola, Dupont, Deloitte, Kodak, Kraft, MeadWestvaco, NutraSweet, Pfizer and SC Johnson.
When not consulting with clients or delivering programs, Blair is a husband and father who likely can be found at the family’s home in Evanston, Illinois learning creativity concepts from his three kids.
Our group found Blair Miller to be an exceptional facilitator. He was dynamic, active and was able to take a group of cynical and somewhat jaded surgeons and move them forward to directions that were very constructive and positive.
