You'll be learning the design thinking innovation process.

Fulled by needs and values, you'll understand how to take a deeper look at what your audience are really after and generate ideas and solutions that are ultimately going to be more fulfilling.

Instead of taking things for granted or repeating solutions that have been seen or done before, a design thinking mindset empowers you to question- "how can this be made better?" and "how can I deliver a better experience?"

Once you can do that, you can start to achieve innovative breakthroughs that people are going to really get behind.

Set aside 20 mins or so and learn to be a great designer.

Creativity trainer, communicator and consultant

I enable people to unlock more of their creative potential, think more effectively and generate better ideas.

I also design communications that provoke thought and change behaviour.

I've always had an ability to see things in different ways and a passion to help others break free from restrictive thinking.

I now run a creative agency but was formally a big-business consultant specialising in strategy, growth, innovation and change. It's this mix of inventive thinking and real world experience that enables me to achieve success when working with others.
