Launch of the world’s smallest conference centre at the London Design Festival

06/Jan/2006

The world’s smallest conference centre – a two-seater car – is taking to the streets of London to boost the capital’s creativity on Thursday September 29th as part of the final drive of the London Design Festival.

The special ‘creativitymobile’ with creativity experts from creativity@work at the wheel offers free consultations including creative gym sessions working on anyone’s live problems, creativity clinics addressing how you can be a more creative person, and also ‘managed maverick’ reviews to think up completely new ways of doing.

 

The unusual conference facility is a new service being launched at the London Design Festival by consultancy creativity@work. It provides a range of flexible thinking training, idea facilitating, and conference events to help people use creativity to achieve more with less. The firm has worked for major blue chip companies including L’Oreal, Ford Motor Company and ASDA plc.

 

Typical problems dealt with include insufficient time, lack of support from colleagues, or too many projects competing for attention, lack of confidence in their own creative abilities or lacking the skills and techniques to effectively create, nurture and exploit new ideas.

 

The World’s smallest Conference Centre will be touring the Capital on Thursday September 27th including visits to the Royal College of Arts at Kensington Gore, London SW7 2EU between 10am and 12 noon and also at London Metropolitan University between 2pm and 4pm  at the Shoreditch building, 35, Kingsland Road, London E28AA.

 

The world’s smallest conference centre will later this year be visiting a number of major international innovation and creativity conferences including the Creative Clusters conference in Belfast and Refuel in Leeds. It is available for hire to companies and organisations, offering experienced creativity consultants who can enable anyone to come up with new ideas.

 

Commenting on the new vehicle for creativity Andy Green of creativity@work said: ““Everyone seems to face the same challenges of achieving more with less. They need to think differently to identify new ideas, new ways of doing, or how they can get more out of themselves. We can help Londoners create a better future at work, at home, or in their communities by joining us in this informal, intimate and unusual setting.”
