About Creative Ninjas

I was amazed at the results after the course. It has really increased my confidence for brainstorming sessions and how to think outside of the box. So fresh and eye opening.

ManagerPrêt A Manger

I think it was absolutely the best course ever I have attended. Claire’s techniques about creative thinking have changed my beliefs. I got so much valuable information and I don’t have doubt I will use it very often.

General ManagerPrêt A Manger

Professional and fun, a great experience for staff of all abilities. The Creative Ninjas course provided the team with a wealth of tools and tips that they now readily use on a daily basis within their current roles; perfectly orchestrated by the trainer and thoroughly enjoyed by the candidates, I look forward to booking another course soon!

We’re a fast moving business and rely on creative ideas to keep our competitive edge. As an in-house team we constantly need to revisit familiar challenges and find new ways to approach them. The creativity workshop was the best course I’ve ever attended. We got so much great information and as a team we have now adopted many of the techniques into our creative arsenal.

Eleanor ConroyPublic Relations Director Europe, InterContinental Hotels Group

I feel empowered – when a brief comes in that needs quick turnaround I have tools to use. Practical advice has been very helpful with an understanding of limitations back at the office – some courses are too ‘perfect world.’

Andrea CarterDirector, Consumer Award-winning PR agency Red

I was so inspired by Claire’s training on ‘How to be a Creative Ninja’ that we set up workshops for the whole agency. Claire is brilliant at demystifying the idea that ‘creativity’ is some kind of dark art or innate talent only possessed by few. Her training session was lively, engaging and, most importantly gave us practical tools that are proven to stimulate creativity and the confidence to believe that we can all be creative. What’s more, because the tools and techniques Claire gave us are simple and fun we are using them for creative sessions 2 years later.

Jo ChappelCreative Director, Fever PR

Very useful day. Feel like I have an ideas toolbox on demand now!

Social Media ManagerOgilvy PR

Nice and practical, no cheesy motivational crap.

Anil MistryCreative Director Experience Worldwide (experiential)

The whole agency recently went through the Creative Ninja’s course. I genuinely have heard nothing but positive comments and real excitement from the team since. It was a fantastic training day and I really believe it will help transform our approach to brainstorms and help elevate our approach to client briefs and possible creative solutions. It was honestly a pleasure to apply the techniques and see the seismic difference they gave in terms of our outputs and the whole experience of the brainstorm. Claire delivered it all in such a warm and knowledgeable way and kept everybody engaged all day long.

Caroline KinseyChairman, Cirkle

I loved it and learned more in half a day than I have on many longer courses. Good balance of theory and practical. 10/10!

Sara DochertyPR and Marketing Officer Lothian and Borders Police

Loved it, invaluable content, I’m certainly going to use the techniques to help me be more creative.

Joanna SimpsonCampaign Communications Office, Surrey County Council

“The Unleash Your Inner Creative course has proved incredibly popular with participants as far afield as Shanghai, Delhi and Sweden spanning public sector, consumer, corporate and healthcare companies as well as in-house teams. They all report the same benefits. Feedback includes regular scores of 90 and 100% satisfaction and “Very useful, the examples and particularly involvement was a great way to interact” and “I felt I could literally take what I learned straight into work – and I did!”

“The training provides practical, easy to understand creativity techniques that people can use the minute they finish the PRCA webinar. The course has proved so popular online that we have scheduled regular face to face sessions which are very well attended.”

Creative Ninjas was great! My expectations were exceeded. I found the theory interesting and loved learning new techniques. Overall the facilitation, relevance and pace were excellent.

Helena WiltshireHead of PRSave The Children

It was really enjoyable and useful, no ‘forced’ moments (as can sometimes be the case in training). I will use what we learnt in my day to day working and will share the techniques with my colleagues. I loved it! Overall 9/10.

Jo CampbellSenior PR Manager Corporate PartnershipsSave The Children

10/10! It was amazing to learn genuinely useful techniques we can apply at work. My personal objectives were exceeded.

Brainstorm facilitation is not just for Creative Directors it’s for anyone with the power to call a meeting.

Matt WrightCreative Director, Bite Global Communications

One of the best bits of training I’ve done in 12 years.

Loved every minute of it!

Alice Ter HaarCherry London

Claire is one of a kind – that rare breed of sound strategic thinker and creative genius. In a tight spot she’s always good to consult and get a new perspective – there’s always something new that you haven’t thought of that she’ll bring to the party. And another great skill lies in unlocking creativity in others. She’s skilled at structuring creative sessions that get you to where you want to be in a simple painless step, and in a way that makes everyone feel involved and needed. And – importantly – she’s a lovely person too.

Nik DoneFounderAward-winning PR agency Unity

Claire developed and facilitated an unforgettable global positioning workshop for Courvoisier. From helping refine the brief to exceeding our expectations on the delivery, she provided a diverse blend of elements – ranging from the conventional to the inspirational. The team left thoroughly engaged and excited about the way ahead – in no small part down to the insight, effort and passion brought to the table by Claire. I would not hesitate to recommend Claire, she is highly professional, creative and a real joy to work with, a sentiment echoed by all delegates of the workshop.

Incredibly valuable

Most people we work with understandably don’t want to share that information! But we do have many happy clients.

We have lots of ideas from you guys. I liked the fact just ‘got it’, you’re obviously creative PR pros and delivered exactly what I needed. You guys were fantastic and will use you again for definite. I wanted to get a few insights from people we trust and want to establish a relationship with and we got exactly that.

5 Steps To Strategy Heaven

Developing PR strategy is a core part of the job as you rise up the management ranks and great strategy is at the heart of all good campaigns. We worked with Now Go Create to develop the team’s skills in this area with impressive results. The team loved the practical, hands-on nature of the course: getting stuck into a live agency business challenge meant that no time was wasted and the outcomes of the day were immediately applicable to our client work. Our team of ADs and Associates universally loved it with one even saying it was the best course they’d ever been on! It has helped to harness great agency thinking and sharpen insight from the minute the training finished.

This course just made approaching briefs and pitches so much easier.

After six years of working with Claire, she continues to inspire and motivate me with her amazing ideas, energy and approach to both life and work. She is visionary, innovative and off the wall and yet she is commercially driven, results orientated and accountable in every aspect. Claire is a natural leader who delivers and inspires greatness.
