Recent praise for the event:

" I feel totally enlightened and definitely more creative!" - Jenny J. HR Business Partner, Banking

"Very interesting tools, I can't wait to start using them." - Andrew W. HR Director, Logistics Group


Here we explore the structured tools of creative thinking that allows just about everyone to become and feel more 'creative'. 

We review what it takes to instill those principles in any organisation and the barriers to developing a real creative and innovative culture.

In an era of immense change, creativity is everything.

Do you think you're creative? Often our limited thinking stops us in our tracks. We think, therefore we are.

However creativity and innovation isn't what you think it is...phrases like 'think outside the box' are common misnomers that lead people to think creativity is a zany whacky eureka moment.
Quite the opposite.
