Great perspectives

Alex is a never-ending fountain of creativity, and this is a great way to hear him talk about what creativity means to other people, not just from advertising but from all kinds of creative endeavours. Useful for anyone wanting to flex a bit more creative muscle.

Power of creativity.

Really brilliant to see a pan-media approach to creativity. There really are so many ways creativity influences our daily lives. We could all do with a little more blood flow to the right side of the brain!
