Strong creative facilitation is a critical factor for successful innovation projects; to help define and drive the creative process, but in a way that inspires all the team. We run different Creative Facilitation training courses, including a 3-day "Hothouse Champions" program for 20-24 delegates who are given the tools and training to plan, prepare and facilitate the Innovation Hothouse process. Delegates are provided with an online tool-kit of different facilitation techniques plus full training with Zip-Zap Ideas®. Enjoy the movie to get a feel for how we run our courses.....and how we encourage delegates to "go into the danger zone". Enquire now »
