For over 30 years, Chic Thompson has helped thousands of organizations and countless individuals to think creatively through workshops, training, speaking engagements, books, and videos.


In 2001, Harvard Business School wrote a case study on Chic's speaking career and entitled it What a Great Idea! 


WAGI became the abbreviation for What a Great Idea!" and our mascot Wagi was born. As Wagi grew, Chic developed the WagiLabs to encourage and expand kid's natural curiosity, empathy, and dogged persistence. 


Chic also wrote a book for adults, published by HarperCollins, using the same empowering phrase. It became the main selection of the Executive Book of the Month Club.
