About Creative Thinking Torbay

Creative Thinking Torbay (C.T.T.) are a group of idea driven Torbay people that meet once a month to think creatively with a guest not-for-profit organisation. The hope is the ideas from that session will help inspire and make a difference to the guest organisation.


Most CTT members are past students of Peter Redstone’s inspiring ‘Creative Thinking Workshops’, where they learnt practical creative thinking tools to solve problems and generate new ideas. However, the group is open to anyone that would like to practice their problem solving techniques.

It is free to join and each meeting costs just £5.
