A practical creative process
Dave has developed a simple process that can be used to solve any problem. It uses the mnemonic RIGHT, which stands for Research, Insight, Generate, Hone and Test. He trains organisations on how to use this to get better ideas from their workforce. And he covers it in many of his innovation and creativity talks.
During Dave’s career in advertising, he came up with ideas for many of the world’s biggest brands. Now he speaks to them about creativity and shows them how to come up with better ideas themselves.
He’s worked with the BBC, Sky Television, ESI Media, D&AD, The IPA, The Drum, Nestlé, Experian, Hilton, Movember, HSBC, Bilfinger, Hodder & Stoughton, Bauer, Communicorp, TJX Group and lots more.
