Joanna Pieters asks highly successful creatives: why *do* we create? We talk about the real stories behind the public success, how to get your work noticed, how to get people on side, how to build a tribe, and how to create more of the work that you believe in. You’ll also discover the latest thinking on innovation, brain science and creative productivity. Whether you want to revolutionise your job, inspire your team, complete a novel or start a business, the Creative Life Show gives you the practical tools, the inspiration, resources and motivation to unleash your most powerful creative expression.
