Session: Unlocking Your Creativity: 3 Ways To Have Amazing Ideas

Shed is an expert in ideas and will share three techniques which he uses to unlock his own creativity, and believes can help make anyone’s ideas happen. Shed believes that "when an idea pops into your head, it can send you on amazing adventures - if you follow the idea through...".

He fervently believes in ‘failing upwards’ by trying to launch numerous ideas and learning from the amazing experiences they bring.

Three key takeaways from this session:

1. Renewed motivation to be ‘inspired inwards’ so you can be ‘inspiring outwards’

2. Concrete, practical techniques for coming up with amazing ideas that you can apply to their own businesses and lives 

3. The belief that you can be far more creative than you previously thought, and should take action on your ideas
