Monday 15 May
4:00pm5:30pmUK time

In this fast-paced and energising session led by Saboteur creative director Nick, we'll try out a variety of tools and techniques to build our creative muscles — both solo, and among our teams.

This session is about trying out new techniques for idea generation, and getting into habits that will enable us to keep our thinking fresh and ideas flowing.

Our session leader is Nick Eagleton — former creative director of The Partners and Superunion — and now co-founder of Saboteur. Through many years guiding creative teams towards impactful and effective and ideas, Nick has honed an ample toolbox — loaded with ways to unearth and sharpen thinking.

With some real creative challenges front of mind, we'll work through ways to identify opportunities, generate starting points, connect and develop what's ripe and leave behind what's not. Nick will also share helpful ways to facilitate and combine the imagination of those in our teams.

You'll leave the sessions with a whole load of new approaches to take away, share and try out daily.

What we'll cover:

• 'Yes and' thinking
• The art of reframing
• Team tools for idea generation
• The right questions and when to ask them
• The power of what and who
• The art of making connections

How the session will be structured:

Led by Nick, we'll rapidly work through a number of new tools and approaches — testing them out together on real-world challenges.

Who the session's for:

Anyone looking to continually fuel their idea generation skills among an imaginative group of peers.
