About This Event

Stuck in a rut, unable to see beyond your current job? Longing for a career that truly excites and fulfils you, but struggling to generate fresh ideas?


Join our interactive session where we'll dive into the art of idea generation for career change. Discover techniques to overcome the blockers, explore new possibilities, and uncover potential paths for your professional journey.


  • An understanding of what the phrase ‘I have no ideas’ really means (and a technique to harness it to your advantage)
  • Insight into the single biggest blocker that keeps career changers stuck when it comes to generating ideas (and how to get past it)
  • Practical idea-generation strategies from some of the greatest creative thinkers and innovators in history, that you can apply to your own situation
  • Options for habits and tactics you can build into your day to day life to generate ideas consistently and reliably
  • An understanding of the right (and wrong) time to discard ideas – and what to do before you strike something off your list
