Session details

A candid tutorial on dreaming up new ideas and ways to act on creative impulse—no matter one’s artistic ability or the environment.

Creativity is a mindset— a way of thinking to finding new solutions. We don’t need to be artists to be creative but we can all be creative salespeople, lawyers, doctors and teachers. And creativity is just like muscles— the more we use them, the stronger they get. So how can we stay creative during these strange times? Yah-Leng will share tips about what she does on a daily basis to inspire creativity and her work and take you on a little creative journey that gets your brain sweating.


Who this is for

– Inquisitive individuals interested in personal growth

– People who are feeling bored and want some guidance on how to stay creative and innovative

– Anyone who needs a little inspiration and motivation during these challenging times
