Two’s Company: Creative Cultures

Published by

On Wednesday 8th July our Founder spoke at the YCN, Two's company event where they explored ideas, techniques and approaches that can foster creativity within workplaces along with James Allen.

Whether it’s lunch roulettes at Warby Parker or Google’s 20 per cent time, more companies are seeking to create working environments that are conducive to creativity. But barriers to success abound, and are compounded by the busying creep of technology and inherent challenges of growth. Our best ideas come through when we're relaxed and at ease – but where do businesses begin when it comes to culture change? On July 8th, we invited two entrepreneurs well-versed in this field to share their learnings and insights with YCN Members, all keen to examine and evaluate new ideas and opportunities.

Emma Sexton is a creative thinker, design consultant and regular speaker on the subjects of 'redesigning business as usual’ and rethinking the way we work. She is the founder and creative director of Make Your Words Work — a design studio specialising in crafting meaningful communication — and in addition has set up projects such as A Hetero Approach and A Herd to Run With. Joining her was James Allen, founder of Creative Huddle, an organisation that develops learning programmes and workshops to help businesses – such as Tesco, Excel London and the Barbican – to build creative capacity and culture.

The evening was moderated by YCN’s Jennie Webber, with the audience invited to join the conversation with their own questions, experiences and observations.
