“At Mischief, we believe Creative is a culture and not a department. Claire and her team, get this. Their focus was on driving creative behaviours, we saw the difference immediately and continue to see the impact daily.”
I think it was absolutely the best course ever I have attended. The creative thinking techniques have changed my beliefs. I got so much valuable information and I am sure I will use it very often.
