(PGT) Creative Problem Solving student with laptop

  • Thursday 26th January 2017 @ 13:30 – 16:30

Despite what you might believe, there is no great secret to creativity. All it requires is a brain and some techniques. You bring your brain, and I’ll provide the techniques. I don’t promise you’ll be composing sonnets by the end of the session, but you will leave with some clear approaches to being more creative in your work.
