Make an Impact



Creativity has the power to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Whether that's the thinking behind great business ideas or the means to wow an audience. Creative Encounters can provide you with awe-inspiring solutions to make more of an impact in the things that matter in your world.

Creative Encounters is run by Simon Jack, a creativity trainer and communicator. He has a background as a strategy consultant, working with some of the UK’s most prominent companies on projects that deliver a real change.

Simon is passionate about enabling people to adopt the mental attitudes and thinking techniques required for creativity and innovation. Emphasis is firmly placed on breaking established thinking habits that stifle creativity. By tackling habits, change takes place at an emotional level. This ensures creative thinking opportunities can readily be recognised in everyday situations. Plus there's a great deal of fun and personality involved. Training events and workshops sizzle with energy!

Simon also puts his own creative talents to work in helping people bring their messages to life and importantly, change behaviours. Whether it's via writing or visuals, creative concepts make a huge difference in grabbing the attention of an ever more fleeting audience. He is professionally trained in both business and humour writing!

Ordinary just won't do. Together let's make an impact!

Can’t thank you enough !

Dear Simon

Just to say a big Thank You for coming along on the 9th July. You were a great hit with the students (who have bothered to come and tell me so!) and have really fired some of them to think of unusual pathways or imaginary careers. They still talk about pigs flying! You pitched it just right.

Brilliant! Thank you so much.

Best regards,

Sally Priestland, St George’s School

Simon listened to what I wanted to achieve and adjusted the ideas (which were very creative!) to my goals and style of work. It turned out to be a success. I can only say the best words about Simon. He's reliable, attentive, professional, full of ideas, great listener and problem solver. Anyone looking to put together creative ideas for a workshop / talk / presentation / brand strategy and more should definitely get in touch with him.
