Head of Jumo Campus, Jumo World
"As a business owner, in an industry that is quite well established, I think that we have to be creative otherwise we are going to fall behind.

We’ve found definite ways of using what we’ve discovered today in our business to improve it."
CEO, Homecoming Revolution
"The course has made me want to use my creativity in spaces and situations that I thought I wouldn’t be able to. I’ve found more links between different areas of my life to increase creativity."

Portfolio Manager, Vunani Fund Managers
"Two weeks after the workshop, I have been applying the creativity tools at work, especially using different thinking. I’ve been approaching things more from a creative perspective than the normal numbers perspective. I’ve been looking at new markets and how we can penetrate them. I’ve also been using a number of tools in my personal life to great effect. I learned that creativity is open to everyone in so many different forms. You can awaken your creativity through amazing tools that I didn’t even know existed. I think that’s awesome."
