WE CREATE VALUE IN THREE WORLDS
We develop and deliver unique Innovation and Creativity trainings designed to cause rapid, impactful transformation for both businesses and individuals. Our trainings are practical and structured, developed over several years, tapping into the knowledge of dozens of international creativity experts. We’re doing the research so you don’t have to.
We generate content on the topics of Creativity, Innovation, Africa, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and collect and present other relevant content from the most cutting-edge sources worldwide. Yes, again – we do the curation, you get the benefits.
We empower people and organisations to be more creative by public speaking and participation in events, advisory positions, and partnerships and collaborations with other thought leaders in our industry. We’ve developed a special focus on Fourth Industrial Revolution issues and empowering youth.
Creative Thinking has been rated as the most important skill in the Fourth Industrial Revolution by the World Economic Forum, LinkedIn, Adobe, and many other sources. The First Industrial Revolution turned humans into robots. Now robotics and automation are turning us back into humans. And Innovation is the most human of all skills.
85% of CEOs agree that creativity is the key to driving economic growth. And Cleverism says that Creativity is THE must-have skill for entrepreneurs. Adobe reports that 88 percent of businesses agree that investing in Innovation makes them more competitive and have more satisfied customers and more productive employees.
The average sales of innovative companies are 6 times higher than average. Individuals who report as “creative” earn 17 percent more than “non-creators.” 82% of people surveyed agree that Creativity is valuable to society as a whole.
Regular creative thought lengthens life, boosts the immune system, and nearly halves the chance of mental disorders later in life. Merely watching someone else do creative work calms the mind and reduces stress.
Creative Thinking boosts the production of positivity neurotransmitters, making people who practice regular creative thought happier people. People who identify as “creative” are 20% more likely to report themselves as confident, and 15% happier.

Did You Know
WE ARE ALL BORN CREATIVE
Do you think you “just aren’t that creative”? Or that you are? Yet there is no Creativity gene. Creativity is an inborn skill of every human being. In fact, Creativity is at the heart of being human. It’s one of the things we excel most in.
WE ALL LOSE OUR CREATIVITY AS WE AGE
98% of five year olds scored at genius level in a famous study, while only 2% of adults scored at that same level. As Pablo Picasso said, the challenge is not to be creative, but to remain creative as we grow up. All of us have lost our Creativity as a result of our life experiences. People who are “more creative” than others today have just found ways to hold onto their natural Creativity. That’s all. It’s not your fault.
EVERYONE NEEDS MORE CREATIVITY
Many people confuse Creativity with art. That’s because artists know they need Creativity in their work. Really, though, Creativity is a critical skill in EVERY area of life. Maslow put Creativity at the top of the Hierarchy of Needs. Yet at the level of basic survival, finding food say, Creativity can save a person’s life. Having better ideas faster and easier means saving money, time, and stress. It makes people more productive, happier, and healthier. Who doesn’t want that?
CREATIVITY IS A SKILL, NOT AN ACCIDENT
We can recover our lost Creativity and even gain much more. Because Creativity is a Creation. A choice. A skill you learn and manage. And however Creative you are, you can benefit from implementing better techniques.
CREATIVITY MEANS MANAGING THE SUBCONSCIOUS
The full creative process includes critical thinking, problem solving, and so on. This process happens in a dialogue between the conscious and subconscious minds. But flashes of transformative creative insight come 100% from the subconscious. And most of us have no relationship at all between these two parts of our psyche. We are good at controlling our subconscious. We need to train ourselves to manage it. And building that practice is the basis of Create Your Creativity.
