Creativity is one of the most valuable skills we can bring to any field. It’s a basic ingredient for any organization that wants to survive and – even better – thrive in the uncertain conditions that surround us. Bottom lines can make it seem that our access to creativity is limited but it’s precisely when there are limitations that creativity can step in to save us. In teaching how to escape comfort zone behaviour and think in new ways, Christopher illustrates how anyone can boldly make steps into fresh creative terrain.
The best magicians are experts at connecting with their audience. Christopher’s entertaining workshops demonstrate essential skills of gifted communicators and share exercises to help delegates sharpen these skills to effectively communicate, connect with and persuade their audiences.
“Christopher was a blast of fresh air, delivering a powerful and thought-provoking workshop which not only challenged us to think in new and innovative ways, but also gave us plenty of tips and techniques to help us apply the lessons to our business and personal lives. All this, while keeping the group entranced and thoroughly entertained. One of the most effective, original and enjoyable sessions I have ever experienced.”
