Releasing and realising new ideas
A busy and intensive day that offers individuals a range of techniques to energise their teams, generate new ideas and put them into practice.
Participants learn several key creativity techniques including how to maximise creativity in groups, ensuring everyone is engaged and removing the mindset traps that hold back creativity.
Using =mc’s innovation value chain model, participants explore the more formal process of innovation at an organisational level – taking ideas from a basic concept through a reality check to practical, quantifiable results. They also discover how to support a culture of creativity and innovation.
Yes, and also face to face (as soon as it is safe to do so). It's equally suitable for both options.

If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.
- your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
- tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
- self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online
