As an educator and creative entrepreneur, Maria Simonelli recognises the enormous reach we have as the creative brain has no limits. She builds creative capacity and problem solving skills across non-profits, business, governments and community, that result in real and positive change.
With an intriguing range of creative tools, she draws on years of experience and qualifications in education, science, research and visual arts. She combines these in a unique approach to develop creative skillsets and core competencies, by identifying and creating the conditions that enhance creativity.
Maria is the founder of The Creative Catalyst and author of two books, The Creative Advantage: How the intersection of science and creativity is revealing life’s ultimate advantage, due for release in early 2021 and Sweet Spot Careers: A practical and creative guide to a successful midlife career transition.
