Our first Creative Conversation of 2015 will focus on lateral thinking and creative problem solving. We are very excited to welcome De Bono Instructor Geoffrey Seaman who will lead a 2 hour workshop exploring lateral thinking using some of the tools and exercises De Bono created. The workshop will be participative and engaging, offering the opportunity to consider new thinking about existing issues in school, community, work or at home by using two lateral thinking tools.
Edward De Bono is regarded by many to be the leading authority in the world in the field of creative thinking. He originated the term lateral thinking and is a proponent of the teaching of thinking as a subject in schools. Schools from over 20 countries have included De Bono’s thinking tools into their curriculum.
De Bono has written 57 books including Lateral Thinking: Creativity Step by Step; Six Thinking Hats; Serious Creativity: Using the Power of Lateral Thinking to Create New Ideas and How to Have A Beautiful Mind. He has held faculty appointments at the universities of Oxford, London Cambridge and Harvard and was one of the 27 Ambassadors for the European Year of Creativity and Innovation 2009
This workshop will be delivered by Geoffrey Seaman, a certified De Bono Instructor.
