Creativity online - Using Edward de Bono's thinking skills

Is there one accepted definition of creativity? The pandemic and our response to it has shown otherwise. What we seek is a new way of thinking about thinking. In this workshop, we will use the remote medium to explore how our workplaces and homes can become more creative using Edward de Bono’s creative thinking tools and techniques.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • why do we need to think and learn about creativity?
  • how can the work of Edward de Bono help us form structures to promote creativity?
  • how can we apply creativity techniques to commonplace activities such as meetings, problem-solving, new product ideas or any sphere of human activity?

 

Intended for adults who are 

  • young executives
  • aspiring future leaders
  • homemakers 
  • students and 
  • anyone who would like to explore these skills.

Day: Saturday
Date: 26 June

Time: 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.
