    “The Creativity Workshop changed me
    forever and moved me forward in managing my companies. The Creativity
    Workshop is far above all the other creative seminars I’ve taken
    in its inspiration, positive spirit, and techniques for nurturing
    creativity. This workshop is important for anyone who wants to
    develop their creativity in their personal or business life.”

    and FPG. Advisor to The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center of
    the Columbia Business School, New York City

     

    “Attending The Creativity Workshop in New York was a blessing. It changed my focus in writing. I was so concerned about the technique that I forgot about the roots of creative practice. I’m thankful of the way Shelley and Alejandro reminded me about the triggers and the tools to set free my creative process, as well to keep focus on the process itself and not just look to the final product. The workshop was so dynamic that the three and a half hours of class time went by like three and a half minutes. I came back home full of energy, ideas and the desire to write from another angle now.”

    Lissette Sutton, Author, Mexico City, Mexico
