Dave Birss is fascinated with how we come up with ideas – what makes some people better at it than others, what makes a good idea, how to get better at having them, how businesses can become more fertile environments for fresh thinking  – and this obsession finds its way into almost everything he does.

And has led to him helping some of the world’s biggest brands come up with ideas they wouldn’t normally have.


“This book is probably the best creativity manual in the world.”
“If you’re looking for a range of insights into the art & practice of creative thinking, then ‘How to Get to Great Ideas: A System for Smart, Extraordinary Thinking’ by Dave Birss is what you should read.”
“There are a lot of books written about creativity, with most (if not all) of them focused on the wrong things. Dave Birss hasn’t fallen down the same rabbit hole. “
“The best book I’ve read in some time”
“A great read that gives a unique and honest perspective of creativity and how to get the best out of you. A useful tool that I would recommend everyone read, regardless of what field you work in.”
“It’s well-written, informative and, despite my initial worries, about the most motivating book I’ve read in quite some time. I can thoroughly recommend it.”
“I’ve seen Dave Birss talk about creativity and the creative process at several conferences. I was hoping his book would be as stimulating, and thankfully it is. And then some.”
“If you want to have great ideas you need this book. Dave Birss’s books are one of the reasons I can still put supper on the table by having ideas.”
“An absolutely INCREDIBLE book that’s going to help and inspire so many people.”
“I highly recommend this to individuals and organisations that are wanting to learn more about developing new ideas and implementing those ideas on their journey of growth through business and life.”



Dave is a highly-rated, entertaining and energetic speaker. He travels all over the world speaking at conferences and events. Sometimes with the aid of his guitar. And he always leaves people with practical take-aways they can apply immediately.


In 2018 alone, Dave either wrote or contributed to seven books. Most have gone on to become best-sellers. And there are more in the pipeline right now. Make room on your bookshelf because Dave’s got plenty more to say.


Dave has worked with some of the world’s biggest brands, industry bodies and even governments. He helps them understand how to get to better ideas and how that’s good for business. Maybe he can help you too.
