The Common Creative - But Never Ordinary A podcast series with Paul Fairweather and Chris Meredith
The worlds of business, home and play are all starved of creativity.  From an early age, we’re taught how to analyse, critique and simplify but the tools for exploring, ideating and creating are assumed to be instinctive.  The Common Creative is all about bringing creativity back into everyday life - understanding the essence of creativity and making creativity a common as a loaf of bread and as well understood as a common language.
Hosts Paul Fairweather and Chris Meredith are both creative thought-leaders and have been bonded by a common passion for creating and sharing something new and inspiring every day. Paul paints a watercolour of the household object and posts the image on IG “@everythink”, Chris photographs the same beach each and every day and posts the image on IG “@thisisbalmoral”
By day, Paul Fairweather is a Brisbane-based, speaker, author,  mentor,  architect and artist. Chris Meredith is a Sydney-based, business coach, innovation consultant, and award-winning photo-artist.
Each podcast explores a different aspect of creativity. Recent topics have included: Energy, Time, Constraints and even the Impact of Covid-19 (why not?!) 
The podcasts are ideal for anyone looking to get out of a rut and deliver stuff that goes beyond the norm.

    Episode 34 - Elvis Has Entered the Building

    "So who's Elvis around here?"

    This is the question that Bono used to ask when he turned up to big organisations to find out who to work with, who made things happen, and who was a little bit daring. It is also the question that inspired the name behind Upping Your Elvis, a creative leadership business which helps companies to understand and harness their creativity.

    Chris Baréz-Brown and Jim Lusty join us this week for a fantastic episode filled with insights such as how to make business fit you (and not the other way around), building a dynamic around a team rather than a company-wide culture, and how to overcome the fear of stepping outside of the norm.

Going dotty

Shane Hatton has me seeing dots. Not just connecting, I have been collecting, curating and contemplating them. I have realized I need to tell my clients not to conceal them!
Great episode.
