What people are saying

Ross C.

United Kingdom

Gives a really good full spectrum view of the creative process - including things like how to give and receive feedback, as well as different approaches to individual idea generation or brainstorm-based idea generation. The variety of examples also means that you'll feel both entertained and inspired as you work through the course.

Johanna A.

United Kingdom

On my eighth course now and this is one of the best. As English is not my first language, I like that it’s easy to read and the stories are great. Had to really think about some of my answers this time so more challenging but that’s a good thing. 😀

Peter D.

Excellent course to help think through the concept and practical steps to increase creativity.

Awesome case studies. Some great videos and top notch stories. Loved the one from Rory Sutherland about Red Bull vs. Coke. So true but never thought about it that way before! Some helpful practical tools for boosting creative thinking which is handy. Overall, a great xourse.

Natasha C.

A lot more fun than I expected. Some e-learning I’ve done in the past kind of sucked but this was different. Actually enjoyed doing it and picked up loads of helpful tips. Useful if you’re thinking about starting you’re own business I’d say...

Something a bit different. Makes a good case for why creativity is essential in business especially these days when the pace or innovation seems to keep accelerating. As a partner in my company, it’s given me some ideas of ways to improve our creativity as well as a reminder of its importance. Highly recommended.
