Creative Thinking / Brainstorming

Yvonne believes everyone has unlimited ability to think creatively about everyday challenges, and she is on a mission to show people how to unleash those hidden talents. She calls it a 'friendly poke in the eye'. Every conference or gathering aims to stimulate, educate and inspire new ways of thinking. So why not harness this energy by holding an Ideas Summit at your event? In this fun and practical think tank, Yvonne will facilitate a powerful idea-sparking process, using the participant's actual business challenges to help them generate mountains of ideas. What follows is a practical system for evaluating the best ideas, then creating a one-page implementation process to ensure the ideas are swiftly brought to life back at the office. This is a great way to ensure that all the inspiration you have worked hard to create at your event is captured, also that the best ideas are discovered and acted upon.
