connectify

Whilst a number of brilliant innovations have been produced in isolation by the lone innovator, in most cases the really good ideas come from groups of people.  It seems this connection of the creativity of many people refines and polishes the original idea. And, when it comes to collective creative thinking, it’s not just a connection but an electrifying connection and it turns a good idea into a great idea. We call it connectifying: the electrifying connection of ideas and creativity that produces outstanding innovations. Linda's painting connected is a vibrant expression of this level of creativity.

Rarely do you find such a unique set of skills where one foot is firmly in the corporate world and the other, earned and recognised in the art world. Linda has a successful career in marketing and advertising as a senior executive and is a recognised and well trained artist who has also become a teacher.  It was this combination of skills that led Telstra to contract Linda to bring to life a unique set of stories that needed telling and that we also able to drive a commercial outcome.

I share my partner Linda’s belief that all people have creative ability within them. I’ve seen this in my work in advertising agencies and also in large corporate organisations over the last 30 years. In both instances great creative ideas often came from the unlikeliest of places. It is also my firm belief that good leadership, creativity and innovation are inextricably intertwined in the DNA of successful companies and organisations. For that reason I believe the most important work of leaders is to encourage and support creativity wherever they find it. This is one area I work in helping people become effective leaders of creative and innovative teams. The other area I work in is with the teams themselves helping them build confidence and expertise in their creative abilities.

I believe that all individuals are creative and that our creativity can sometimes be simply dormant waiting for the right environment or the right mix of people to coax it to the surface.   Fostering creativity in a business environment, through team and stakeholder collaboration and engagement can be a powerful tool, and is an area in which I am particularly interested. As for my background, I have a mix of business, creative, teaching and mentoring skills developed over 25 years.   I am a visual artist, senior university lecturer and also have 20 years’ experience working in senior marketing and advertising roles.
