Ireland goes Green for creativity

09/Apr/2008

A leading UK creativty expert is doing a tour of Ireland to encourage creative thinking.

Andy Green, a partner with creativity@work will be visiting Dublin and Cork speaking at events organised by the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII), the professional body for the public relations industry in Ireland, and also lecturing to students at the Dublin Technology Institute.

 

The Wakefield-based creativity expert provides inspiration and training on unleashing individual creativity skills and how to manage the creative dimension at work. Andy has run training courses and lectured around the world from Shanghai to San Francisco.

 

Andy is the author of ‘Creativity in Public relations’, the world’s first book on the subject and also ‘Effective Personal Communication Skills’. Andy is the driving force behind the Wakefield Media Centre and also the world’s smallest conference centre – a two-seater car.

 

creativity@work 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. GREEN communications is one of Yorkshire’s leading branding and public relations agencies.

 

Commenting on the mini tour Andy said: ”It will be a great challenge – and great fun inspiring a nation renowned for its creativity.”

 

The role of the PRII is to enhance the professional reputation of its members and the PR industry in Ireland generally by promoting best practice and by raising awareness. It does this through training and education programmes developing skills and rewarding excellence, and by giving public relations an official voice nationally and internationally.

 

Founded in 1953, the Institute is affiliated to CERP - the European Public Relations Confederation. Members of the Institute subscribe to the Code of Lisbon, as well as to the Code of Athens.
