Instructor Biography

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.
