“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them” –

Albert Einstein


Sometimes, traditional analytical thinking simply doesn’t produce the results you need. You end up using too many words. Things get too abstract. You stop understanding one another.


I can help you tap into your creative resources to bring clarity. All the ideas you need are almost certainly already present in your organisation. It’s all about unlocking, unleashing and connecting those ideas.


My sessions are tailor-made to tackle and resolve issues in your organization. The first step is for the client and myself to meet and discuss the best approach. I generally find that it’s most effective to work with groups of 5 to 10 people in series of 3 to 5 half-day sessions over a period of 1 to 2 months.

Design Thinking

Many of the techniques I use are rooted in Design Thinking, a method that has had a huge impact in recent decades. These ideas have shaped our contemporary lives, in the digital realm and elsewhere. For proof look no further than the West Coast of the United States. You are sure to be well acquainted with the results.

Visual Thinking

My approach involves more imagery than most Design Thinkers use. Images can activate other areas of our brain and directly address our feelings. Participants in my sessions loosen up and become more mentally flexible. The ideas start flowing and they gain a clearer view of what connects them as a group.

For vision seekers and innovators

You’re involved in a complex process. Are you developing the potential you need for decisive action?

  • Is your organisation engaged in a review or reorientation?
  • Do savings need to be made, and do you want to assess their impact before any decisions are taken?
  • Have you just reorganised, but your teams aren’t functioning as well as they could?


What’s going to be your next move? Are you going to defend the status quo or find a new common purpose?
