Creative play can help us innovate, facilitate effective meetings and produce our best work. Join our special guest speaker Jenny Leonard, a London based artist who believes we are all innately creative to find out how.
Jenny will share her story of moving into a full time creative, freelance role and taking the leap into a challenging, competitive field. You'll learn from her experience, tips and tricks and will have a chance to ask questions.
We'll also explore our own creativity through a few short exercises designed to help us play and harness our creative energy. We'll then reflect on this experience and discuss how we can use similar processes in our workplaces - whether they're viewed as creative spaces or not. Creative play can help us innovate, facilitate effective meetings and produce our best work. Join us and learn how.
Join us on Wednesday 5 February, 6pm-8pm
