This workshop, which is aimed at CXOs, Senior Managers, Creative Minds, Activation Experts, Online and Offline Media professionals from advertising agencies, is intended to make innovation deliver results for all concerned. This module will introduce concepts of ideas, creativity and innovation, divergent and convergent thinking and a few powerful thinking techniques which can be applied during brainstorming.
