Product description


‘I’ve seen ?What If! in action and it works.’ Alan Yentob, BBC

‘Chris Brown has the rare ability to inspire people to want to learn – he stimulates a passion for creative thinking.’ James Meyer, Vice President Marketing, Kimberly-Clark Europe

'Chris’s book is a champagne-in-the-veins tonic for jaundiced people who desire to revive the technicolour from a monochrome life. I heartily recommend it.' Tim Smit, co-founder and CEO of the Eden Project


Practical and inspirational ways to help you kick-start your creativity, identify what you want and then make it happen. A playful and mind-expanding book by the training guru at What If!, the world's largest innovation consultancy, who will help you to unlock your creative juices and grow in new directions. Stuck in a rut, bored, dissatisfied, uninspired. Feel like it's Groundhog Day. Got a problem you don't know how to solve. But what if you knew exactly what you wanted and could make it happen, right now? To get there, you need creativity - you need some kick-ass ideas. We are all born creating machines, we've just forgotten how to use our natural inventiveness. In "How to Have Kick-Ass Ideas", Chris Barez-Brown, who turns companies around the world into highly creative and successful teams, pours his most kick-ass techniques into a book that reunites you with the imaginative genius inside you. Chris's playful, stimulating approach will energise you, and show you how to catch the creative wave to change your world. It's about fun, freshness and new ways of thinking, filling your life with new experiences and then getting playful.

Find out exactly what it is you want and then make it real! Step-by-step, Chris guides you through the working principles of genuine creativity - Insight + Ideas + Impact = Inspiring Opportunities, that completely demystifies the creative process. The book includes case studies and imaginative practical exercises to kick-start your ideas: - 'Related Worlds': looking at where your issue has been solved before in a different area. It may be as bizarre as extreme sports or dental hygiene! - 'My clever friends' - imagine what somebody else might do in your situation - 'Go Visual' - capturing your issue without using words. You can sculpt, collage, whittle, whatever!
