Event description
Dive into the world of the best innovative and creative thinkers, as you use cutting-edge creative thinking tools to solve your business pro

About this Event

It's well known that children are amazingly creative thinkers, but that over time, through the influence of school, further education, and experiences in the workplace, that creativity is stifled and "educated out". We're taught to conform, and for that reason, many of us really struggle to be creative and innovative.

This is a huge problem for businesses, because when a problem rears its head, the natural reaction is to think "how did we solve the last problem" and then tweak that for the new situation. But as the famous quote goes...

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got."

- Albert Einstein (quite a clever chap)

We've not only forgotten how to innovate - even if we have a go, we're concerned that the ideas are too far outside the box and won't work anyway.

In this totally immersive workshop, you'll learn and use cutting-edge tools which are designed to enable even the most traditional thinker, to jump outside their box and solve business problems in a manner of which Einstein would be proud!
