Intuit. Imagine. Invent.

Inspired visual thinking techniques for STEM leaders and decision makers

Innovate is a workshop designed to facilitate revolutionary imagination and visualisation skills, powered by the Engine of Creativity.

Create the future

Innovation requires insight, ingenuity and imagination to question conventional beliefs around 'what is' and 'what works', in order to provide new solutions for established problems.

Learn to see differently

Imagine the world as it could be

Throughout history, visual artists have developed unique non-verbal, analogic and intuitive visual thinking processes that have heightened their sense of wonder at what they saw, alongside their ability to record it.

Visual thinking advantages

Through curiously exploring and visualising the world as they saw it, they simultaneously enhanced their ability to imagine the world as it could be. Innovate will teach you to utilise these creative visual thinking processes to ideate, iterate and implement with clarity and purpose.

Visual thinking processes

Non-verbal

Develop a heightened awareness of things, with a minimal connection to words.

  • Employ this to help you create a clear vision, define the strategy to achieve it and create an action plan to clarify it for your organisation.

Analogic

Learn to see more complex likenesses between things, to help you develop a more sophisticated understanding of metaphoric relationships.

  • Make use of this to better visualise your process, in order to improve understanding and execution.

Intuitive

Make broader leaps of insight, often based on incomplete patterns, hunches, feelings and visual images.

  • Utilise this to more effectively approach your most strategic problems from a different perspective, so that you can accelerate results that stick.

Learn your way

Innovate is designed to help you make the mental shift to this unique mode of seeing. Transforming HOW you see will give you two distinct advantages:

Both of these benefits will enhance your own innate creative imagination and capacity for innovative breakthroughs.

No two Innovate workshops are the same. Designed from the ground up to address your specific needs, Innovate is based around my proprietary approach to teaching creative visual thinking.

Its fluid, modular framework means I can adapt its delivery to efficiently suit your preferred learning style, while contextualising the core principles of each workshop session to most effectively deliver your required outcomes.

From topical to timeless

Innovate is based on proven creative visual media practises

The exercises you will undertake have been carefully developed to encourage development of the abstract, visual mode of processing that artists have employed for centuries.

Discover the extraordinary

Across a decade of teaching creative media professionals, I gained a unique insight into the benefits afforded to these visual storytellers whose profession helped them develop a more sophisticated visual imagination.

Incorporating these findings into my Engine of Creativity framework, I have developed Innovate expressly to help STEM professionals utilise these extraordinary benefits to their advantage. Innovate will help you unlock your latent creative imagination with tasks which develop the artistic mode of seeing and processing.

Innovate will teach you to process non-verbal, visual information in the unique manner utilised by artists.

Outcomes

Learn to perceive problems, identify ideas and seek solutions differently

If innovation is all about looking forward and discovering new solutions to familiar problems, STEM leaders can facilitate these breakthroughs by employing the practises and processes visionary visual artists have used throughout history.

These unconventional visual creators devoted their lives to uncovering the laws of their medium, as well as their own growth and vision. This creative process heightened their ability to relate these two discrete outcomes, enabling them to transcend their craft by creating a timeless object imbued with a life of its own.

Visionary visual artists process in new ways the visual information available to us all. They instinctively see possibilities for transforming the ordinary sensory data at hand into a new creation, transcendent over the raw materials.
