What does it take to be creative in business? This is the question this new book In Your Creative Element sets out to address.
Claire Bridges, Founder of Now Go Create has written a new book – In Your Creative Element – the formula for creative success in business – to help readers identify a personal creativity formula for success. It provides personalised insights so that readers can develop their knowledge and skills and their own formula to unlock creativity and apply it in any context.
Backed up by academic research, as well as her own personal experiences from her 20 year career working in PR and communications for some of the world’s biggest brands, Claire has identifed 62 elements that affect creativity and created a unique ‘Periodic Table of Creative Elements’. This simple framework adds logic and science to the concept of creativity and can be explored by anyone to explore which creative elements are most important to them and to transform their approach to creativity in business and beyond.
