When we seek new ideas, new and different ways to work, we are often limited by a need for certainty. Doing things differently requires curiosity, and a willingness to work with uncertainty, not fight it. Thinking and working like an artist enables our curiosity, and unlocks a willingness to do things differently. Art is subjective, and it lends itself to a multi faceted, open dialogue about how we can make work better together. The arts are an ideal lens through which to conduct an inquiry into our work, and in this context, I believe we are all artists.
I work with businesses who want to improve performance through smarter exploration and use of creativity, collaboration, and communication. I work with teams and organisations, frequently using the arts as a lens through which to learn and work. This creative approach helps cocreate and deliver improvements within a wide range of organisations throughout the UK, Europe, USA, The Middle East and Australia.
The people and teams I work with are often successful, curious, and at least a little adventurous. They display collaborative leadership qualities, regardless of their hierarchical position within their organisations, and are looking for ways to make good work even better.
Connecting different groups of people is a vital part of my work. I enjoy using a mix of conversational techniques, technology, and artistic methods to help make work better. People often hire me when they want to achieve something collaborative and creative, and they want to do this together. With each other, rather than to each other.
Each engagement I undertake is uniquely crafted and bespoke to meet your particular demands. When you need a broader range of specialist skills to help meet your needs, I work as a Partner and Artist In Residence with GameShift, to ensure we have the right depth and breadth of experience to meet your needs.
If you believe your work could be even better, and you are willing and interested in doing things differently, please get in touch. I’d love to work with you.
