Prior to starting the business, I worked at Procter & Gamble for 17 years. For that entire time I worked remotely as I was based in Newcastle but the rest of the team was in London or Geneva. So I understand the challenges that virtual and hybrid working bring. I have experienced how easily mis-communication can cause disruption but I have also experienced how it is possible to build very strong working relationships with people you never meet.
I’m also passionate about using creativity to overcome challenges and I use pottery painting as a tool in my workshops. You don’t need to see pottery painting as art or requiring artistic ability: it’s a vehicle for facilitating creative thinking to overcome challenges, with the added benefit of being a rewarding and absorbing activity for everyone. It’s an ideal way to relax your mind and energise your thinking.
Combining my corporate experience with pottery painting means Vibrant Thinking offers a unique way to empower teams and transform the workplace.
