Some of the best inventions and business ideas have been developed by one person looking at a problem in a new way and coming up with a better solution.

Over the past couple of months we have all been going through some forced change at some level and out of change comes either problems or opportunities.

Creative problem solving is an innovation framework focused around better ideation and brainstorming sessions. This methodology helps you get outside your own mind to unlock new solutions to problems or challenges. This workshop will teach you the basics of this innovation methodology and help you implement it effectively into your own work. Discover creative solutions you never would’ve found before by looking at the problem/challenge or idea through a new lens. Through our creative problem solving workshop, you can practice this innovation framework and build on skills and tools to leverage for future use.


Start-up or established businesses. The workshop has been developed for people looking to solve problems and innovate, adapt their mindset to look through a new lens and solve challenges creatively.
