About this Masterclass

Ideas are the currency of any customer experience, innovation, technology, people or transformation program. Yet most organisations and teams aren’t purposely set up to encourage creativity to flourish. Often their setup has the opposite effect, unintentionally killing creativity.

The masterclass provides a deep dive into the key barriers to individual and team creativity and how to overcome them. This includes how to design and facilitate the ideation phase and workshops, generate breakthrough ideas, harvest ideas for potential and turn these into experimentation briefs. In this interactive and experiential workshop, Nathan Baird shares his 20+ years of practicing, refining, honing, leading and training creative thinking and ideation on 100s of design and innovation projects and 1000s of workshops across multiple industries and continents.

10 out of 5. So well presented, so interactive, awesome learning environment created. Took my knowledge of innovation from 1% to wanting to be creative and innovative in every step I take!

I have been involved in a number of innovation training programmes and projects run by Nathan and his team. I have found their tools, techniques and the way in which they approach innovation and creativity to be both enlightening and effective. Nathan challenges your thinking and teaches you amazing techniques to unlock new insights and ideas.

Nathan supported our Foresight work at the ATO in 2020, including on the co-design and facilitation of the inaugural Strategic Foresight Program for the ATO. We simply could not have developed the program without Nathan’s insight and extensive experience in the innovation space!

It’s a rare person that’s not only able to generate innovative ideas based on genuine insight, but also to teach others how they can develop that ability in themselves. Nathan is one of those people and his energy and expertise is bound to help drive any organisation forward.
