IDEAS FUEL THE BEST OUTCOMES.
By focusing on the meaning of an outcome (the Why) and the teamwork necessary to realise that meaning (the How) Ideation Design achieves radically better outcomes.

"Paul ably presented a thought provoking session at our Thought Leadership lunch. He explored the context for change, posing the question of just how smart do we need to be to meet the needs of an agile society. This elicited an engaged and interested response from the audience."
"Paul is an unusual design thinker, concerned equally with client success, design team process and product quality. He has a powerful grasp of how design can serve stakeholder needs, and has devoted himself to providing insightful client support."
"Paul has the extremely rare ability to captivate an audience while taking into quite challenging areas. Intelligent, incisive and inspirational, and with years of groundwork to back it all up."
