First of all, I tell you the conclusion: the truth about creativity, so you save your time. Creativity is "How you connect things". Second of all, you don't want to learn from people talking just theories. This is a proven method. I have proven that my method works by demonstrating it. I even expose my calligraphy art at the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy and gave a speech at La Central in the Reina Sofia Art Center where you can see Pablo Picasso's Guernica.
You do not have to join conferences to be creative, to learn design to be creative, and to go to school paying tons of money to be creative. You can be creative from this moment, right now, in the present. It is just about how you connect things that you already known and experienced. However, because of the education system and common sense, the way you connect them is directed to a specific direction. You have been made think in a certain way.
My mission is making the humanity awake.
The importance of Creativity has been increasing dramatically. Adobe said CREATIVITY drives business success. IBM reported that CREATIVITY is Selected as Most Crucial Factor for Future Success. Deloitte mentioned 'Digital know-how', 'management' and CREATIVITY are the skills London businesses increasingly need. There is no doubt Creativity is the key to survive in the 21st century and enjoy your potential.

This course is for・・・
This course is for those who wish to have their creative minds freed and expanded. It is for those who have a true passion to be creative. I do not wish to dictate what you do, but simply open your eyes to your own creative visions and possibilities. If you commit yourself to the suggestions in the course, you will change your viewpoints and develop a much higher sense of the creativity within yourself. Being creative is not just academia but rather changing one's way of viewing, thinking about and interpreting the world around us. Are you ready to develop creativity for your own sake? What you learn here is not a formula for differentiating yourself from others but a way of thinking that will transform the present you to a more creative you.
The basic flow of the course
1. Essence of Creativity
2. Structuring creative Mindset
3. Verbal approach to enhance your creativity
4. Non-verbal approach to enhance your creativity
5. Progressive Thinking ~to Think Differently
6. Third Vision ~to have completely new perspective~
You will learn about what is this course about and the introduction to being a creative person.
People often would like to discuss about some new way of enhancing your creativity. It is often the case that those new methods last only a couple of days. Interestingly, we rarely talk about "Why we have not been able to make the most of creativity". By learning this point, you would be able to have better understanding about creativity.
When you talk about stimulating your creativity, it is mainly about having an unique office and classroom or increasing the number of ideas you can come up with. These things are surface of creativity focused too much on the output. What we need to learn to be creative is the essence. What is the new definition of creativity?
What is difference between creative people and non-creative people? It is extremely important to understand how creative people think instead of learning techniques and skills that creative people have. Understanding the essence of creativity allows you to open the door to be creative.
Why some people are incredibly creative and others are not? Everybody says "I want to be creative" but what happens is that only a small number of people actually enjoy their creativity. In this session, you will learn what determines your level of creativity.
