In the business jungle the law is disrupt or be disrupted. The trouble is no-one ever teaches you how to do this kind of creative, disruptive thinking. And how do you think outside the box when you’ve hardly got time to think inside? Guy Browning’s “Box Breaking” session offers a range of powerful and stimulating tools to tackle everyday problems through fresh creative thinking without the need for strange haircuts, group drumming or expensive yoga retreats. This highly interactive and engaging seminar shows how people at any level can use their personal intelligence, insight and imagination to bring startling fresh thinking to any part of the business.
