What is innovation? And how do you get into the right mindset to do it?

This online masterclass will give you the thinking frameworks and practical tools to do just that! Weโ€™ll start by asking the right questions to allow you to work out what innovation means for you. Next, we will explore the behaviours which help people to be creative and to encourage a culture of innovation.

Finally, we will use a creative thinking framework, and a set of tools with which, during the session, you can work on a key issue/opportunity for you, emerging with some exciting and innovative new ways to approach it!

Learning outcomes

By the end of the event you will have:

  • Developed the mindset and behaviours that encourage innovation
  • Built a toolkit for getting creative with your team
  • Formulated some fresh ideas to solve a tricky problem

โ€œClaireโ€™s session was energising โ€“ I got more than I expected!โ€


Who should attend?

This will appeal to people at all levels of an organisation โ€“ to anyone who likes to have fun with their work, challenge received wisdom and bring fresh thinking and vitality to themselves and to their colleagues! Innovation happens everywhere!

Come along ready to get into your โ€˜right brainโ€™ and play with your innate creative thinking abilities.
