Ep. 41: "Creative people... they're unbelievable" (Guest: Hywel Evans)
A refreshed and invigorated Sean and Mark return form their Summer break and dive straight in with creativity consultant, enterprise and innovation adviser and audio producer Hywel Evans.
In the episode they cover the myth of the uncreative person, how organisations kill ideas and where they go today and, in a sideways move, why it can be valuable to pretend you are a penguin. They also discuss making creativity a collaborative process, why you are better off paying for a bar tab than that expensive team-building away day and what to do when your ideas are met with a big fat no.
Plus lots more.
In the episode they Hywel references https://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_do_schools_kill_creativity (Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talk), the documentary https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13302848/ (Inside Pixar) and https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2MaADRnh8_k (the opening sequence of La La Land).
