A Twisted Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

A Speaking Event Presentation by Leigh Rubin of Rubes® Cartoons

What if you lived in a world where your livelihood depended on being creative every day, 365 days a year, and writer’s block is not an option? Cartoonist Leigh Rubin, creator of the internationally syndicated comic strip Rubes, has lived in that world for over 35 years. How does he do it, and more importantly, how can he inspire your own creativity?

Twisted Mind Speaking Event

Through his hilarious and inspirational presentations, “sit-down comic” and professional daydreamer, Leigh Rubin emphasizes the rewards of persistence and the fun of problem-solving while celebrating the joy of creativity.

Leigh’s fast-paced and fun-filled presentations have gained a reputation for inspiring those who attend, to add a little creativity to their own lives. Leigh’s goal is to inspire people to take a break from their normal routine of looking at things, and to think, outside the box, even though he himself has to draw inside a box.

Let Leigh inspire your group or organization to find the humor by looking at the world in a slightly twisted way!

What types of events does Leigh do?

Leigh explores fresh perspectives and creative problem-solving, and inspires ways to look at any situation from different viewpoints. Just as there’s more than one way for a chicken to cross the road, there is more than one way to solve a problem.

Leigh has presented to groups of all sizes, from six to six hundred! From low-tech to high-tech, whether it’s a conference, corporate event or educational event, luncheons and dinner banquets too! Whatever the event you are planning, no group is too large or too small and Leigh will leave you feeling inspired and smiling!
