About the Event

Albert Einstein famously said ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them’.

Creative ideas and innovative solutions are key ingredients for business success. Businesses, no matter how large or small, who see & act upon the opportunities and possibilities for change will not only survive in an ever uncertain and complex world, but flourish.

Whether you work in the creative industries or not, this workshop will encourage you to reflect on how ideas are generated and developed, exploring what helps the process and what hinders.

Creativity is a mind-set that welcomes spontaneity and surprise. It’s a way of thinking that can easily be blocked by expectations and assumptions, familiarity and habit. And these blocks creep up on us. In this workshop we identify the blocks and find ways to remove them.

A first in Lincolnshire – Mandy Wheeler and Luke Sorba, both award winning writers and directors with many years experience teaching and coaching creative professionals, bring their unique workshop to the University of Lincoln.

Delegates will return to their workplace with an improved insight into how to create new ideas, products and services that will bring greater success and renewed energy to their business.

Are you eligible? – Places are free

This workshop is available for businesses, partnerships, sole traders, and registered charities, with a trading address located within Greater Lincolnshire (North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire & Lincolnshire).

To access this workshop, your business must complete an SME enrolment form in order to check the business’s eligibility against the funding criteria. (The form will be sent to you on completion of an Eventbrite booking - if one has not already been completed and on file).

Due to limited space all places are limited to one delegate from each business to ensure we can support as many businesses as possible at this workshop.

Through Eventbrite you are only requesting to book a place on a workshop/masterclass and this delegate place will be confirmed via email once the SME Form and eligibility have been checked.
