Achieve Business Goals Through Creativity
Learn how to use anticonventional thinking (ACT) and other creative techniques to develop, test and implement ground-breaking ideas that enable your business to innovate more profitably.
Would you like to learn how you can effectively use creativity and collaboration to achieve business goals of all kinds? If so, perhaps I can help you!
Over the past decade, I have been helping companies and government bodies use creativity to be more innovative. I have helped teams develop new product ideas, new ways of packaging existing products and ways to revive mature products. I have helped government bodies come up with plans to revive sagging economic regions and promote new initiatives. I have helped European projects develop creative ways to achieve international goals
Over the past two years, I have developed a new approach to creative thinking, anticonventional thinking (ACT) which is modelled after the way artists, writers and composers collaborate on creative projects and takes into account the fundamental weaknesses of brainstorming (if you've ever wondered why your brainstorms result in a lot of mediocre ideas and little action -- don't worry, the problem is not in you, it is in the process).
These days, in addition to writing, I hold a few ACT workshops and talks. Recently, I've done workshops and talks with Genentech, TE, Afton Chemicals, Philip Morris International, the government of Dubai, the Algarve Region in Portugal, Apgico and others.
Here are my main workshop models. If you have something else in mind, let me know. I may be able to help!

Creative Ideas Workshops
These workshops introduce ACT or use ACT to enable you and your team to generate creative ideas to achieve business goals.
Innovation is about implementing creative ideas in order to generate value. Creativity without implementation is useless as far as innovation goes. These workshops use creative thinking to help you innovate better.
