Now he’s focused on demystifying creativity to help individuals learn new skills and to help companies use fresh thinking to achieve better results. His keynote talks and workshops not only debunk the myths, lies and misunderstandings surrounding creativity and innovation, but also present new methodologies, frameworks and practical exercises. They’re focused on helping companies weave creativity into their culture and show them how to apply it to solve real business problems. Dave’s approach is aimed at creating far greater levels of staff engagement, a more innovative culture, practical fresh ideas and a strong leadership vision. This can help any company differentiate themselves in a crowded marketplace by offering unique value to their customers. Dave’s energetic and entertaining talks are packed full of stories,

Dave’s energetic and entertaining talks are packed full of stories, case-studies and practical advice. He’s also known to involve the audience to illustrate some of his points. He always finishes with tangible take-aways and techniques that the audience can start applying to their own situation immediately. As a highly respected thinker in the field of creativity and innovation, Dave's opinions have been published in books, magazines and newspapers. He's the Founder and Editor of OpenForIdeas.org, an online magazine that shares practical skills and techniques to open up creativity for everyone, so that we can all get better at coming up with ideas. In 2012 he published “A User Guide to the Creative Mind” and he currently has several other books in the pipeline. In 2014 Dave wrote, directed and presented the television show “The Day before Tomorrow”. Audiences leave Dave’s sessions with new insights into creativity. Most importantly they come away understanding that creativity isn’t a mystical process, it's a practical skill that should be embedded in organisations and used to add real business value.
