In Detail

Dave's mind is now focused on the benefits of applied thinking and demystifying creativity. His methodologies, frameworks and practical exercises help to accelerate innovation and idea generation for organisations worldwide. Dave's obsession with creativity: what is it, its role in history and place in our daily lives, and what makes some people more creative than others; it is at the core of everything he does. Dave is on a mission to destroy the mystique around the creative process and unlock as many organisations and people as possible, so that they come up with better, less obvious ideas. He empowers individuals and teams to harness the innate creative abilities that everyone possesses and thus, make them exponentially more valuable and successful.


Dave's keynotes, Master classes and Creativity Audits range from co-creating meaningful new ideas, to concepting education programmes for teams, and on through to product development and marketing sessions for some of the world's most curious companies and motivated leaders.
