I am hitting the road covering more than 600 miles in 3 days to promote the cause of creativity and innovation in the South West of England.
I will be aiming to inspire local businesses in the South West region to be more creative and innovative with a series of Creativity Clinic Roadshow events in Truro, Exeter, Gloucester and Bristol along with ‘Pop-Up’ events en route – where companies can request a special creativity session at their workplace via Twitter – over two days on Wednesday April 2nd and Thursday April 3rd.
I will be touring in the ‘World’s Smallest Conference Centre’ – a 2 seater Smart car – and sharing a free ‘Innovation & Creativity Tool Kit’ to improve creative thinking skills.
Anyone interested in a Pop-Up event for 4 or more people at their workplace – for either a creativity talk or Creativity Clinic – just need to book via Twitter at @CIPR_SW
The tour is organised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) South-West Group as part of a bid to improve competitiveness in the region by improving creative thinking skills.

I have enabled the CIPR to pioneer creativity training. My book ‘Creativity in Public Relations’ was a world first on the subject and I also helped the CIPR to also lead the way in being the first in its sector to provide training courses on creative thinking skills.
The ‘CIPR Innovation and Creativity Toolkit’ provides a comprehensive set of tools to help anyone in business be more creative and innovative.
