ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — The spring semester brings new chances for Winthrop University and the surrounding community to talk about creativity, community, entrepreneurship, engagement and innovation.

The next round of the Innovate, Create, Engage (ICE) program’s lecture series begins Monday, Feb. 22, when David Horth, a senior fellow and senior designer with the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, will be speaking on “How Arts Inform Leadership and Leadership Development.” The free lecture begins at 7 p.m. in Dina’s Place. A reception will follow in the lobby of the DiGiorgio Campus Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Horth is an expert in leadership development and product innovation. He is the co-author of the award-winning book “The Leader’s Edge: Six Creative Competencies for Navigating Complex Challenges.” He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Surrey in England and an M.B.A. with a specialization in innovation from Tulane University.

The ICE program is modeled after Microsoft’s popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talks, in which experts from multiple fields share their ideas through brief powerful talks. Funding for the project was secured through a grant from the S.C. Department of Commerce for the Knowledge Park Innovation Center, submitted by the city of Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation in conjunction with Winthrop, York Technical College, Comporium, the city and other partners.
