Delegates were extremely pleased by the presentation as it wasn’t just about fixing professional problems that sometimes seem insurmountable, but it was about how to tap into creativity in all activities of your week to be more grounded and resourceful. Then to tap into that creative resource pool when you need to do it at work.
