InnovatorsBox

About Us

OUR MISSION IS TO UNLOCK CREATIVITY FOR ALL

Through creative educational workshops, consulting, facilitation, and tools, we help all professionals hone their creativity to solve problems in the face of change and complexity.

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®.

Meet Our Creative Companions

Meet some of the companions on our journey to unlock creativity for all! We all have an innate abundance of curiosity, courage and creativity which never goes away; instead, we lose touch and fall out of practice. It’s like having old friends we haven’t connected with in awhile.
This is why InnovatorsBox has created a creativity cast of characters to help you reconnect with your true self, unleash your imagination, and paint more possibilities each day into your life. Whether you are seeking inspiration for your professional journey or your personal one, we hope that these characters remind you that everything is always within reach.
