Why I created The Strategic Creativity System™
➤ People are the greatest assets in organizations, but many overlook the science that fuels their productivity and creativity.
➤ Many essential leadership skills can be learned and honed, but they are mistaken for soft skills and are undervalued or ignored.
➤ I use my experience leading innovation programs and scaling capabilities at Frog Design, Fahrenheit 212, and Capgemini to unify the most impactful techniques I know and make them accessible to anyone.

I have been committed to leading innovation, strategy, and design teams throughout my career. I gained valuable experience from working at top firms such as Frog Design, Fahrenheit 212, and Idea Couture. By scaling skills and capabilities to hundreds of professionals within Capgemini and for my clients, I have impacted cultures, leaders, and teams worldwide.
My experience spans all sectors, as I have worked with new product development teams and corporate innovation groups within many Fortune 500 companies. Some of my past clients include Samsung, Bloomberg, Marriott, IKEA, Coca-Cola, Target, GSK, Prudential, Mondelez, UBS, and Stanley Black & Decker, among others.
My passion is unlocking the full potential of people and teams.

Using carefully-selected and crafted frameworks, I help teams solve problems confidently, reliably, and effectively.
My ultimate goal is to help leaders and teams maximize their impact through strategic problem-solving and collaboration. With The Strategic Creativity System™ and this course, I am directly bringing some of my favorite and most impactful techniques to leaders.
