The Crazy One

The Crazy One podcast gives you actionable insights to be more creative, become a better leader, create more innovative work, build better relationships with your clients, grow a stronger career and more.
Creative people can now affect businesses in ways we haven’t seen since the Industrial Revolution, but most of us have no idea about how to take advantage of these opportunities. The Crazy One is created out of the real experiences and insights that host and award-winning creative director Stephen Gates has learned from leading global in-house and agency creative teams, building multiple Fortune 100 brands, and working with some the world’s most innovative companies like Apple, Google, and more. It teaches anyone foundational creative approaches and methodologies to some of the more difficult and less discussed areas of being a creative person in any industry.
