  • This course is for those who desire to boost their creativity and want to commit to it. This course will bring about a paradigm shift in your creativity

Do you want to be an international level artist, author, speaker, businessman, coach, athlete? 

This course is the solution for you. I've realised everything mentioned above. It's not because I am genius but because I know how to flourish creativity. Everybody can be way more creative than now. 

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. There are so many classes and subjects but no one shares with you “How to think" to make the most of them creatively.

Your will learn “HOW TO THINK" to be creative. By taking this course, you would experience a paradigm shift in your way of thinking and be able to CONNECT THINGS DIFFERENTLY as Steve Jobs said that creativity is about connecting dots.

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.

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.

Why people could not have been creative? The truth of 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?

The essence of creativity 1

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.

The essence of creativity 2

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.
