Mind Blowing Ideas
Mind Blowing Ideas—every time you need one.
A global recession, the economy slowing, money getting harder to find. What a time to be in business!
The challenge is not only to be in business but to grow your business. There are opportunities to grow even in a market like today’s. The secret is to know where to look.
Most businesses do not look. They are too concerned with such things as cost cutting, risk minimisation and protecting their customer base.
All of which are good and need to be done.
Where do you look for opportunities to grow your business?
This workshop shows you where to look and how to look. It gives you an opportunity to look at your business in a new and different way. It shows you how to use the IDEA process , the 12 mind blowing techniques and Whole Brain® Thinking and helps everyday people have extraordinary ideas.
