Training Workshops

The journey that led to the creation of BigStorming® continues. Following that same vein of innovative thinking, Barefoot Brainstorming offers three new Training Workshops. During her time in advertising, Marilyn held many senior roles. Two of her favourite areas of focus were “presentations” and “new business.”

The Power of LEGO® Serious Play®

LEGO® Serious Play® is a natural complement to BigStorming®. And since controlled play is at the heart of unlocking creativity, what better way to play than with LEGO®?

The Power of LEGO® Serious Play® is a highly effective problem-solving tool that’s been used by some of Europe’s largest blue-chip corporations – and it is now emerging in North America as one of the hottest new techniques for driving innovative thinking.

Recent scientific studies show that our hands are connected to 70-80% of our brain cells. Our brains, conversely, are limited by how much information they can handle at one time. By stimulating the neural connections in our hands, we can actually “know” a lot more at any given moment than we’re consciously aware of.

Marilyn Barefoot is only one of a handful of certified LEGO® Serious Play® facilitators in North America. During this workshop, guests will learn;

  • exclamation pointHow to “break with tradition” by enabling insights and imagination through play
  • exclamation pointHow ideas are expressed in greater detail, and therefore easier to understand and remember when they are built with Lego® bricks
  • exclamation pointThat play levels the playing field by engaging 100% attention and participation
