Today, i enjoy helping teams share knowledge and deliberately apply their creativity to uncover deeper insights and generate fresher thinking. i am energized by new motivations uncovered and momentum generated through our process. And, yes, i still enjoy being a Creative Director now and then, too. dan@gpscreative.com 312-909-7309 Jeff GreenBerGer, Chief Strategy officer i’ve had a rich professional life, starting as a real estate investment lawyer, migrating to a long career at one of the leading global real estate services firms, Jones Lang LaSalle, and more recently as a consultant and entrepreneur. in my work with clients as diverse as Deutsche bank, Chicago Symphony and the british Department of Social Security, i have developed a rational approach to bringing clarity and results to complex problems. However, my “left-brain” approach has been deeply enriched by the introduction of “right-brain” creativity and GPS process and tools. jeff@gpscreative.com 773-540-2247 © 2010 DAnieL S.
