Pioneering creative thinkers
The latest research into creativity reveals that the richer one’s experiences and the more cultural exposure they have had the more creative they are. This may explain why Andrew and Gaia Grant have been recognized by their peers as creative thinking pioneers. Drawing from a wide range of personal, professional and cultural experiences, they bring a unique contemporary perspective to the field of innovative thinking and problem solving.
Originally from Sydney, Andrew and Gaia travelled the world with their young family contributing to development projects in education in a wide range of countries and contexts before settling down in Indonesia for fourteen years. In Indonesia they made the ‘seachange’ move that most only dream of. They soon found themselves working with some of the top companies and executives in the world.
On their journeys they have encountered Hollywood celebrities, world champion sports stars, CEOs, tireless aid workers, politicians, freedom fighters and terrorist groups – all of which has given them a unique perspective on people and how they can impact positive organizational transformation.
For the last 15 years they have successfully focused on developing leaders and teams in the corporate sector. Believing in proactive innovation for bringing real change to the world Andrew and Gaia designed one of Australia‘s the first ‘students at risk’ wilderness programs and a full values-based personal development curriculum before expanding to bring these same approaches and values to other cultures and contexts.
In 2012 they launched their book "Who Killed Creativity?". Andrew and Gaia’s backgrounds in Education and Psychology as well as their experiences in the dramatic arts have ensured they know how to design interactive sessions that fully engage and entertain audiences, blending fascinating personal stories and exercises with the latest research and case studies. The end result is intelligent customised sessions with solid personal and business outcomes.
As a couple or individually, Andrew & Gaia Grant add real value and depth to any meeting or conference.
