This month, we are thrilled to introduce Christian Kilpatrick from Brick6 Creative as our featured member. We asked Christian a few questions about himself and what it's like using a childhood favorite toy as a unique business development workshop. Here's what he had to say:
What is your favorite film?
What is the best book you've read recently?
“Experts of Our Potential” by Brian Fretwell
What sport do you enjoy watching most?
What is your favorite hobby or thing to do during the weekend?
Favorite Idaho escape?
Favorite place in Boise to take a visitor?
Downtown Boise. We have the best downtown by far.
What is the most important trend in your business or industry?
In my business, the most important trend is to focus on the people of the organization and extract what matters most from them and use that to help the business.
What is the best advice you've received?
Be authentic and genuine about everything you do.
Who is a local business or business person you admire?
What is the number one reason to do business with your company or organization?
We use a unique, non-traditional method that focuses on the people of the organization, rather than just the systems and processes.
What do you enjoy most about your company or organization?
I enjoy knowing that our methods to problem-solving are completely unique and that as an organization, we truly believe in questioning everything. We challenge the status quo and look to push the boundaries of what it means to be a successful business.
Additionally, fun and purposeful play is the name of the game in everything we do. We make sure to consciously do those two things in every workshop and everyday business.
Tell us about a current or upcoming project or company-wide initiative.
We are working on creating a continuous event where new or aspiring entrepreneurs or small business owners can "build a business" in a week. Typically, something like that might take weeks or months, but we believe if we can get everything out in the open and unlock knowledge, skills, insights, and ideas in a week long workshop, a business can be "built". This is definitely a work in progress, but we believe we can pull it off in the next few months or so. Stay tuned!
