March lunch with Sarah King

Sarah shared recent research, which shows that businesses who embrace creativity outperform their competitors in revenue growth and market share.

She explained that these businesses are also more likely to create inspiring workplaces where individuals and teams thrive.

She also shared tangible and workable insights into how to nurture creativity in yourself and your teams, thereby creating businesses which are nimble and able to adapt to the increasing demands of doing business in the 21st century.

Building on her experience of leading complex change in organisations such as British Airways, the National College for School Leadership and Capital One, Sarah founded We Are Unstuck in February 2013 to help to unlock the creative potential of teams and entire businesses to deliver innovation.

Based in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, We Are Unstuck’s growing client base includes Red Bull, Camelot, Penguin Random House, Browne Jacobson and the Creative Quarter.

During the lunch talk, Cara Holland, director of Graphic Change “scribed” Sarah’s talk creating an illustration which highlighted the key messages of her presentation.  The illustrations were then photographed with a view to making them available to the attendees of the lunch to help boost their creativity.

Sarah said: “We’re all born with immense creative potential however; the world of work doesn’t always nurture this capability in people.  We want to be a part of changing this narrative – supporting business leaders to provide challenging and exciting problems which inspire creativity.  Speaking at NCBC provided a great opportunity to begin that conversation in Nottingham.”

Nic Elliott, president of the Nottingham City Business Club said; “I was keen for Sarah to share her knowledge and experience with our guests so they could understand how embracing creativity can help drive growth in their businesses.  The lunch attracted a great crowd and we continue to host around to 100 members and guests each month.  Sarah delivered an excellent interactive presentation which really got people thinking. ”

Director of Notts County Football Club Ian Roberts and Tim Hatton, Manager of Notts County in the Community are the guest speakers at next month’s lunch on Friday 15 April which will be preceded by a Bank of England round table event.
