It doesn’t matter where and how you work. Right? Wrong!

Colour, texture, light, ambience, layout and furniture choice can help or hinder your innovative and agile thinking.  These symbolically represent the traditions, tales and values of your business.  If you were a visitor to your business what would it tell you about who you are?

In this session you will understand that colour, furniture and symbols not only help critical and creative thinking, but also help you to tell the story of your organisation.

Examples will be used from the educational setting where critical ad creative thinking matters.


Outline/Structure of the Talk

 In 45 minutes, I will use pictures in an educational setting to illustrate how to tell the story of your organisation through symbolic means.

There will be 3 x 5 minute breaks for a small thinking activity.

Learning Outcome

Participants will be able to reflect on their own learning environment and change one thing to connect to the ‘story’ they want to tell about their organisation.

Target Audience

People interested in work spaces
