“…I attended a seminar presented by David on The Creative Process; as an artist the subject seemed obviously interesting but also just obvious. Yet I was refreshed and surprised by his honest, better yet— starkly naked practical approach to a process that often feels too allusive and/or mystical to actually employ in any kind of real way.  David really brought the basics back to life for me in a way that feels present and tangible. He reminded me that there is urgency in creation and value in the process. Great presenters don’t just ‘inform’ or ‘educate’ their audiences—they ‘motivate and inspire’ them. That is exactly what David did for me…”

“…perhaps the best endorsement of David Intrator’s Make a Mess seminar is that long after the presentation my team continues to put his creative principles to good use, invoking “Make a Mess/Clean Up Your Mess” when solving challenging strategic problems…”

“…David Intrator is our go-to guy for all things creative. Intrator is a monumental talent, he saws through the hackneyed and trite expressions of today’s advertising dreck  and spits out smart, hard working concepts that always blow the lid off the competition. We’ve never lost a pitch with David and I think that says it all.  Not only is David a great thinker and creative director, his film work is equally beautiful and inspiring.  He’s one of the original Mad Men and I’m glad he’s around to bail us out when we’ve lost our way…”
