The Engine of Creativity is my proprietary approach to facilitating ingenious creative practises. More than simply expert-led instruction, the Engine of Creativity is a personalised, student-centred learning framework for delivering breakthrough training and enriching STEM organisations and workflows with transformative visual thinking processes.
When it comes to developing a clear vision, many organisations are simply iterating topically.
In order to drive innovation, decision makers need to diverge away from employing established conventions that are only relevant to right now. Propel your organisation forward by applying the creative visual thinking techniques that visionary artists have practised for centuries.Learn more about Innovate →
Conventional STEM learning provides conclusions through facts, answers, knowledge and the truth.
For enterprising practitioners to truly thrive, they need to focus on uncovering unique questions rather than seeking established answers. Master your craft by incorporating the two distinct modes of operation that imaginative creatives have utilised for generations.Learn more about Thrive →

How my workshops can help you
Innovate and Thrive are not simply programs for learning mechanical, creative skills. They are modular, interconnected workflows for facilitating interdisciplinary, student-driven learning through authentic, real-world tasks.
I'll teach you how to utilise the cognitive skill of visualisation to form more concise mental images, and then demonstrate how you can use this process to guide future actions, problem-solving and, most importantly, problem-discovery.
Through a range of creative visual-spatial exercises, you'll learn how to apply a more sophisticated visual literacy to support, and enhance, established models of STEM thinking. This collaboration is vital, because every engineer who formulates a new innovations exhibits far more than simply tech, engineering and math excellence. They also need to practise design-thinking, creativity, communication and artistic skills to bring these innovations to fruition.Contact me to begin learning →
No two teams are alike. The most effective learning program is one that is designed to address your specific needs.
While the framework powering Innovate and Thrive is global, the content and outcomes are unique to your organisation. This encourages your team to transfer their learning to familiar experiences through assimilating and connecting knowledge from both unfamiliar sources and unexpected practises.
Most expert-led instruction often guides learners to target goal-specific outcomes in both professional and personal development.
Favouring a process-led approach, Innovate and Thrive intricately interweave both practise and principle, and their richness of methods and delivery strategies focus students first and foremost on systems to learn how to learn better.
Facilitate authentic, deeper learning and higher order thinking with Engine's learner-centred framework.
Innovate and Thrive are student-driven, presented in real time and have been designed from the ground up to be optimised for remote delivery. This encourages real and substantive conversations, increasing learner participation and engagement while promoting shared sense-making through collaboration, discourse and reflection.
