AN IDEAS WORKSHOP THAT DELIVERS RESULTS TO YOUR BOTTOM LINE

As his talk is both entertaining and informative, it is also suitable for lighter occasions.

"I invited Shed to come and visit the Unilever UK & Ireland communications team in April 2009 to share with us some of the thought processes and "tricks of the trade" he uses to come up with great ideas. The session he delivered was dazzlingly good - full of energy, insights, inspiration and positivity. If you want to take an alternative, off-the-wall look at how you can inject some creativity into your team or business, then Shed's your man."
Paul Matthews, Press Officer, Unilever UK & Ireland
“Our commercial team spent a highly amusing and thought provoking evening listening to some of Shed’s real life journeys from mad idea to commercial product. This has caused a real buzz in the team and got our buyers thinking ‘there’s another way of doing this’”
Andy Wiggins, Group Innovation Director, B&Q
“Shed. I’ve never met a character like him. He pitched up in a shiny satin suit and made us squirm, blush and whaddyaknow, think! His can-do attitude and tenacity is an example to us all, even if our own work is quite far removed from Designer Beavers and Pubix Cubes. He’s also incredibly enthusiastic, getting involved with every stage of the event from planning it to judging the competition. We weren’t quite sure what our clients would make of it all but they were thoroughly entertained and, like Shed’s products, the evening has certainly proved to be a talking point.”
Elmwood Elliot Wilson, MD, Elmwood
"‘Less talk and more action’ is the name of Shed’s game, as he goes through countless number of practical tips on idea generation, and how to execute them as well. There are thousands of ideas practically staring you in the face, all you need is a bit of ‘Shed inspiration’ to be the catalyst and kick it all off!"
Desigan Chinniah, eBay UK
“Over and above my own expectations and desires from Shed’s presentation, the feedback from the business has been a huge amount of respect for Shed having the passion and tenacity to see an idea through to its natural completion rather than most who would have dropped it by the wayside.
If you’re a business which wants to continue the same well worn path, Shed is not for you. If you want to reinvent yourself or change the way you and your people think, he is an absolute must.”
Paul Alexander, CEO, Beyond Analysis
