Jeffrey leading creativity workshop in Faro, Portugal

Workshop: Creativity Tips, Tricks and Techniques

This workshop teaches you how to think more creatively as individuals and teams. It can be delivered to teams that want to improve their collaborative creative thinking potential as well as to mixed groups with a greater focus on individual creative thinking.

In this workshop, participants will learn...

  • How the brain builds creative ideas.
  • Why you need to understand a situation before you start looking for ideas.
  • How to analyse and explore a situation so that creative ideas come easily.
  • Why traditional business creativity tools, such as brainstorming, are not very creative.
  • Several creative thinking techniques that really work.

To get maximum value from this workshop, I recommend we apply the tips, tricks and techniques to actual challenges from your organisation. This makes the workshop more relevant and means participants will leave the workshop with viable ideas that they can develop and implement.

Coaching Follow Up

After the workshop, I can coach you and/or your colleagues through the potentially challenging process of taking an exciting, big, creative idea from the workshop on through development and implementation.


The workshop will combine lectures and demonstrations of creative thinking techniques followed by exercises in which you and your team apply the techniques. The workshop will be hands-on, highly interactive and fun.

Workshop Options

This workshop is ideally delivered as a one day workshop. However, it can be reduced to a half day if your time is tight. A half day workshop will involve learning fewer techniques and less practice than a full day workshop.

"I could not be more pleased with the final result. In spite of the fact that the workshop participants were people who, I think, would never try to participate in an event devoted to creativity - company and university top managers - Jeffrey made them enjoy creative thinking and produce a result that, if implemented, will give origin to many improvements in the Algarve region."
