Chief thinker: international keynote speaker
Dave draws on neuroscience, psychology, biology and behavioural economics. He’s obsessed with creativity – what it is, where it comes from, its role in history, its place in our future, what makes some people more creative than others – and this obsession finds its way into almost everything he does. He’s on a mission to shatter the myths and destroy the mystique around the creative process. And on the way, enable more people to harness their untapped creative abilities and help organisations use it more effectively.
