CREATIVITY IS A MUST!

…………………………………

In today’s world across government, non-profit and for-profit, those who do not weave creativity into the fabric of EVERYTHING they do will fall behind or will not survive.

…………………………………

There is erroneous thinking that because one is doing well it is ok to take one’s foot off of the creativity gas pedal. Or, because there is a crisis or tough times one immediately starts cutting, slashing and freezing spends for creative activities.

…………………………………

Through my personal and professional experiences and track record, it is my aim to assist organizations and individuals with ANY creative endeavour. For me, marketing is just merely ONE tool in an extensive toolkit of creativity.

…………………………………

My focus is not just on the things regularly defined as creative endeavours like the arts, entertainment, marketing communications, etc., but any plan, platform or outcome that requires that extra touch, that extra idea or someone at the wheel with lots of ideas!

…………………………………

The task is never too big or small. Seek me out to start a revolution, having dinner catered or something as simple as doing some stickman drawings! I am interested in ALL types of creative projects, but special interest areas at this time are the following:

…………………………………

Social entrepreneurship.

Talent development.

The recruiting, interviewing and job-seeking process.

NGO & non-profit foundation innovation.

Experiential events, happenings & promotions.

…………………………………
