People tend to categorize themselves by a multitude of different characteristics: height, ethnicity, humor, hometown, what they majored in, what instrument they play, how big their family is, and so on.

On Nov. 6, PINC—which stands for people, ideas, nature and creativity—comes to Sarasota, the first time the gathering will be held outside the Netherlands. Nelleke co-founded PINC with her husband, Peter, who died almost two years ago, and continues their vision to extend PINC’s reach.

I have just returned from a most remarkable conference. Pinc (People, Ideas, Nature and Creativity, www.pinc.nl ) is about creativity: living it, talking about it and inspiring it. The concept is sheer genius.
For most of us, the word ‘conference’ conjures mental images of yet another suit and tie, up on stage, clicking away at a PowerPoint presentation with about as much excitement and enthusiasm as a patient headed in for back-to-back root canals. But, the PINC Conference, man oh man oh man, the PINC Conference is anything but. Suit and ties, yeah…they’re there. Projected presentations? Yup, loads of them. But imagine barrel fulls of excitement and enthusiasm, from both the audience and the speakers themselves. And by barrels, I mean entire oceans.
