Course in Creativity Testimonials

“I have been meaning to write to Barbara Stennes to thank her for the wonderful introduction to Edward de Bono’s tools and techniques. Ever since I returned from the Course in Creativity, I have been practicing the techniques in every aspect of my life and work. The results have been amazing. I’ve used it for conflict resolution, meeting facilitation to design a new product and to evaluate new proposals and ideas. I’ve given my manager an overview of the training and I hope more people on my team can take advantage of the techniques.” – Technical Analyst, Premera Blue Cross
