I have had the pleasure of working/collaborating with (Dr) Barbara Doran with clients over the last few years and her work is ALWAYS the highlight. She connects the latest research and science with a call to embrace the creativity that we all have and that the world the world desperately needs. Importantly, she creates a space for people to explore the new, go beyond self-imposed boundaries of what we think is possible and most importantly. be comfortable in that space at the same time. This is at the heart of innovation and big, meaningful change. Simon Banks, Creativity, Innovation, & Design Specialist
