Facilitator and design expert Anne Stieger will conduct a two-session seminar on Fostering Creativity and Effective Ideation in Halifax starting May 16.

The seminar, hosted by Digital Nova Scotia, will show participants how to increase and harness the creativity of their staffs with the goal of developing better innovation.

The organizers note that a recent Ipsos Canada found 88 percent of Canadian executives said empowering staff to be more creative was a crucial factor in creating a prosperous work environment.

“By using creativity techniques, playfulness, and good facilitation in everyday meetings, any team can increase their creativity, lead effective brainstorming sessions, and push the envelope with truly innovative solutions,” said the notice.

With a master’s degree in education, Stieger has worked as a facilitator and trainer in Nova Scotia and Europe and teaches at Acadia University. She has facilitated design thinking sessions for social innovation and led brainstorming sessions for creative projects at Cool Ideas Society Germany.

The DNS sessions comprise a training day from 9 am to 3:30 pm on May 16, and a check-in and feedback session from 1 to 3 pm on June 15.   

The cost to Digital Nova Scotia members is $118 per participant or $228 for a team of three co-workers. For non-DNS members, the price is $598. You can register here.
