"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way." — Edward de Bono

Wednesday 25 November
4:00pm5:30pm UK 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 idea generation, and embracing new ways of thinking about thinking itself.

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.

His belief is that when it comes to the currency of ideas — to begin with it's the more the merrier, and that getting our ideas abundantly down is as important as then knowing how to filter and refine

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.

Expect an immersive and interactive experience, among a supportive group of peers.

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
