Interactive business creativity workshops are designed for each business or organisation to find creative solutions to innovation, marketing and business growth by combining creativity and business. This creativity training is designed for senior executives and managers.
David delivers and facilitates in-house Creativity Workshops to generate ideas within companies and teach creativity techniques to participants. For example he worked with the Abudawood Group in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to run an in-house training workshop for business leaders on creativity techniques to bring about profitable change. He has also worked with Independent Container Lines (ICL Ltd) to help this shipping company generate new profitable ideas.
“The Creativity Workshop was insightful. I enjoyed the various techniques how to encourage creative ‘out of the box’ thinking. I will definitely use Pre-Mortem and B2F daily. David was interesting, clear and concise. He listened to us and was expert in his field.. As a result of the workshop I have noted several action points and will definitely employ some of the methods learned.”

In his business creativity workshops, David helps clients to find innovative, imaginative and ingenious solutions by using both ‘a-Creativity’ and ‘i-Creativity’, as explained in this video from TEDx Napoli.
There is artistic creativity (“a-Creativity”) and a more general kind of creativity (“i-Creativity”) that could also be called Ingenuity, Innovation, Lateral Thinking, ‘Thinking Outside the Box’, or simply Problem-Solving. Read David’s article on ‘a-Creativity’ and ‘i-Creativity’, based on his TEDx talk at TEDx Napoli.
David knows that creativity can be used both in the studio and in the office, in other words, we can use a-Creativity in devising creative products or services, and we can use i-Creativity in our business systems – in marketing, in raising finance, in change management, in commercialising intellectual property, leading people, customer relations, partnerships, organisational structures, market research, project management and in other areas of business growth. David is an expert in creative business models. His creativity consulting and business creativity workshops are relevant to all aspects of business in a wide range of business sectors.
He has helped hundreds of businesses and organisations in more than 60 countries world-wide in his capacity as a training workshop leader and speaker.
