Event description

Description

Does innovation training tantalize you but you’re not too sure what to expect? Check out this demo Creativity Gym workshop to warm up for a dedicated creativity training program. The workshop features sample creativity workouts that showcase the hands-on and collaborative activities that make Creativity Gym such a fun and impactful experience. In October’s iteration, participants will collaborate in teams and apply their ingenuity to resolve several problem-solving and art-based challenges. The teams that produce the most novel and original solutions score points; think pub night trivia meets impactful innovation training. Whether you’re interested in professional development, networking, or just a fun night out Creativity Gym satisfies.

Creativity Gym emphasizes coaching and practice. If you hit the weights, your muscles grow bigger; if you practice creative thinking, you become more skilled at applying creativity to solve problems, and imagine wonderfully new products and services. The demo workshop offers an opportunity for trainees to congregate, network, and practice their creative chops. If you’ve already attended a Creativity Gym workshop, join us this October to reunite with former classmates, meet some new people, and workout your innovation muscles.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, employee, or recent grad, businesses in the 21st century need highly creative, adaptable, and flexible thinkers. Innovative ideas fuel growth and those with proven creativity chops are in high demand. This is where Creativity Gym comes in: the accessible workouts teach intentional innovation. Instead of hoping for a great idea to spontaneously come along or trying to summon aloof muses, trainees learn processes they can rely upon to create many novel options on deadline.

All Creativity Gym workouts are designed by Dr. McFarlane, a creativity educator, researcher, and consultant. Dr. McFarlane serves as a Professor of Creativity and Creative Thinking at Sheridan where he teaches art, design, and business undergraduates the skills they need to thrive in the new economy. He earned his doctorate at the University of Toronto, where he researched the intersections between the creative economy and Canadian culture. A committed citybuilder, he serves on the Toronto Public Art Commission and teaches for Toronto Fringe’s Theatre Entrepreneurs’ Networking and Training (T.E.N.T.) program. Dr. McFarlane uses his expertise to separate science from bullshit so Creativity Gym trainees know their innovation workout will provide long-standing benefits.
