Our most popular workshops

These workshops help our clients build stronger, more innovative teams, get clarity on how they want to innovate their business models, develop powerful, customer focused marketing plans and bring creativity into every step of their business processes.

Team Building and Organisational Change

This workshop helps your people focus on the positive and constructive behaviours that lead to high performing teams. We use the Basadur Innovation System to help individuals and teams understand how they approach innovation. And the Lego Serious Play methodology to open up communication, eliminate hierarchies and generate ideas through ‘building’ and storytelling. These workshops typically run from three hours to a whole day.

Map, change or innovate your Business Model

Using the Business Canvas, in this one day workshop you will map your organisation’s current business model and rapidly prototype innovations to the current model. This practical, fast paced workshop will benefit everyone from start-ups to established businesses who are looking to keep their business relevant in the eyes of their customers.

Transform your business with creative problem solving techniques

Do you have a gnawing issue that you just haven’t been able to resolve? We use tried and tested methodologies including Basadur’s Simplexity Thinking and the Creative Education Foundation’s CPS Learner’s Model, to lend a different perspective and help you derive a creative solution for your problem that works for your business.

Design Thinking to put your customer at the centre of your business

In increasingly complex times, innovation and collaboration skills are becoming vital to businesses, and both principles are essential in Design Thinking. This workshop will explore how human-centered design can help develop innovative solutions for the most complex challenges.

Design a powerful vision and mission for your organisation

Using a range of creative problem solving and idea generating techniques we will help you develop a powerful vision and mission for your business. We will help you bring this to life for your people and integrate it into the heart of your business.

Brand Positioning workshop

In this workshop we look at how your brand is currently positioned in the mind of your customers and how it fits within the competitive landscape. We then look at where you need to be positioned to achieve your business aims and develop an action plan to help you get there.

It has a wide range of applications and is particularly compelling in the following three areas: team building, innovation and strategy.



Have a question on how best to grow your business? How to kickstart a project? How to energise an event? How to get a team working together better? What product or service to launch next?
