Innovating with Style ®

This dynamic programme is based on the principle that we all have the capacity to be creative, yet we approach creative thinking in different ways. Your accredited trainer will take you through your personalised Innovation Styles® profile, giving you a better understanding of how you prefer to be creative and innovative.

Your profile will highlight your preferences among the four different approaches to creative thinking. You will use this as a guide for self-reflection during the workshop and as you continue innovating back in the workplace.
