Companies don’t innovate, people do. 

Unless you have a strategy for unlocking the creative potential of your people and can foster a culture of innovation, it simply won’t happen.

Too many organisations fail to recognise and nurture the creative abilities of their employees and it’s robbing them of possibility, progress and profit. 

I help people like you and organisations like yours transform their relationship to innovation and build cultures that thrive on creativity and change. 


Through keynote presentations, offsite facilitation or individual / group mentoring I introduce a new framework to unlock your personal creativity and help you implement practices to cultivate an organisational culture of innovation. 

 

innovation

artisan thinking

A renaissance approach to Innovation.
To survive our complex and ambiguous economic climate, we need to integrate our approach and transcend current innovation mindsets. We need to think, design and build like an Artisan.

culture

Cultural Architecture

 Designing the conditions for Creativity.
Workplace Culture has never been so important and yet so misunderstood. To sculpt Atmospheric Landscapes that activate and amplify the potential of our people is only the beginning.

Just do 5omething

'A handbook for turning dreamers into makers'

Creative work can be a dangerous place. Fraught with fear and self-sabotage. To make art means to not only touch but to reveal the most vulnerable parts of ourselves to an often cold and indifferent world. 

Too many would be business artisans, makers and innovators fall victim to the blasphemy of self doubt that surround their self expression. Every time a vision goes unfinished the creator, the company and the cause are robbed of beauty, possibility and profit.
