Creative Futures: Track 1

Featuring: Video Video

Is creativity a mindset or can it be developed? How much influence does organisational culture have on creativity in the workplace? And is there space for innovation within all business environments? Managing a successful business is never simple, especially when it’s necessary to navigate a company through a changing landscape. Featuring a series of interviews on topics such as flexible working, the role of leadership and creating under constraint, this collection also takes a closer look at fear, bias and intuition and the role they play on shaping creative environments. It examines approaches used by both private and public sectors and gives an insight into how they use different aspects of creativity to run their organisations. Martin Miller of independent music label Beggars Banquet talks about managing change, while NHS Chief Exec Samantha Jones talks about managing creativity when faced with the pressures of running NHS trust. Also featuring contributions from Microsoft, Cloud Reach, Morgan Lovell, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and Milton Keynes Dons football manager, Karl Robinson.
