Accessing Creativity Program


Business leaders are operating in environments of significant change where problems are increasingly complex, the tempo faster, the markets more volatile, and the consequences of making a mistake are greater. Today's business leaders need to become more innovative, entrepreneurial and agile in responding to real-time business and market feedback.

A number of generative innovation approaches for navigating accelerating workplace complexity are emerging – strategic foresight, design thinking, generative narrative, collaborative creativity, ‘agile’, and rapid prototyping, just to name a few.

Here Is What Our Previous Participants Say About The Program:

"Eye opening and jaw dropping to see what is possible when people create together to a common goal."


"People might not see themselves as creative or innovative but this program dispels that myth by showcasing some tools for generation of ideas." 

Debra Smith, Performance Coach, Claims, CGU Insurance

"Accessing Creativity is a great way to unlock a new set of skills and mindset to solve problems with co-created barrier pushing solutions."

Joe Noone, State Library of South Australia

"The biggest barrier to creativity is yourself. The program aided in identifying why good ideas rarely make it and how you as a leader can change that." 

Shaun Kennedy, General Manager Planning , Strategy & Compliance, City of Playford
