The Insider: Elizabeth Gilbert


Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the New York Times #1 Best Seller Eat, Pray, Love, debuts as a keynote speaker at the Global Creative Economy Convergence Summit on October 5, 2009 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Ms. Gilbert’s speech on “Creativity without Drama” will challenge the idea that creative people must suffer for their artistry in order to be taken seriously, and will emphasize the importance of teaching and practicing creativity without embracing distracting dramas along the way.
“We are so pleased to announce Elizabeth Gilbert as a keynote speaker, and are thrilled to have her speech open the Summit,” said Innovation Philadelphia President and CEO Kelly Lee. “She has tremendous insight when it comes to discovering your creative abilities and we know our attendees will learn a lot from her about embracing the creative process.”
