WHY INNOVATORSBOX EXISTS

The journey of InnovatorsBox® began while I was in my dream career, yet I felt utterly stuck. The lack of creativity in nuclear non-proliferation had made me risk-averse. I couldn’t remember the last time I created something on my own simply because I wanted to.

It wasn’t until I integrated creativity into my daily routine that things started to transform. My productivity skyrocketed. I got promoted. My insights and perspectives changed. I started thinking differently and began sharing fresh outlooks with top clients. And on a personal level, I was less stressed, more confident, and eager to attack what life threw at me.

When I realized that 87% of all professionals do not feel very creative, and that I was not alone in feeling this way, I decided to gather my diverse expertise to create a space for everyone to rediscover their creativity. That’s what led me to start InnovatorsBox®.

Leon Wang Community Catalyst

taking a new idea and bringing it to life

Being creative means expressing yourself and once a person realizes the uniqueness of themselves, their creativity unleashes naturally. So, by encouraging people to rethink the structure of their work and life, we are encouraging people to embrace themselves. And in my opinion, that's a solid reason to work at InnovatorsBox.

Creativity is the courage to try new things

Creativity is the courage to try new things, as Einstein said 'A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.' Sometimes people need some help with that courage, that's where InnovatorsBox comes in.

Julie Smith Coach and Facilitator

InnovatorsBox has pushed me to tackle my own creative limits

When I was in first grade I told my teacher I was going to be a writer. Being creative has always been a part of who I am, and what I do. However, working with InnovatorsBox has pushed me to tackle my own creative limits, approach my work from a global perspective, and strengthen my innovation skills.

We need to teach the next generation how to thrive in this ambiguity

We need to teach the next generation how to thrive in this ambiguity and uncertainty and not just to merely survive.

Andrew Ngui Innovation Coach

Serious work can be fun -- and fun work can be serious

I believe that productively channeled fun is an underappreciated aspect of creativity. Serious work can be fun -- and fun work can be serious, and InnovatorsBox brings these concepts to life in ways that transform people, workplaces, and organizational cultures.
