TAUGHT BY
  • Simon Jack 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.

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.

    Inspirational

    This course, for those interested in getting motivated about design, is a good starting place for the novice. Simon Jack talks about the basic outline of Design Thinking. There is a little bit of reading supplemented with video and a graphic. The links he suggest can eat up a lot of time if you are focused on immersion into the examples.

    DESIGNED TO BE AMAZING!

    This course was highly informative, educational, inspiring and full of insights and resources - both to source online and to download free of charge. It establishes a solid foundation of design principles, which through examples and content, give rise to motivate and challenge the student to think creatively. I found myself taking crazy notes and stopping and starting and replaying portions because I found it so inspirational. Absolutely great presentation. Thank you. Bravo!
