How to have a creative idea

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Creativity isn't a magical bolt of inspiration from the gods. It's a process. This talk is based on Dave's book 'A User Guide to the Creative Mind'. It's not just for creatives in the industry - it's for anyone with an interest in creativity and great ideas.

Questions answered:

  • What is a creative idea?
  • How do you come up with one?
  • Can everyone be creative?
  • What is the secret of being a truly great creative?
  • What stops creativity?
  • What do you do when the ideas aren't coming?
