Feeling a little creative? Plant that seed in fertile ground and watch the innovation grow! Everyone is capable of creative thinking and innovation – it’s part of being human. In a competitive business environment buffeted by social and economic change, innovation at work is more important than ever before. Principal Consultant Richard Sayers facilitates the Personal Creativity Assessment (PCA) ® - a trusted tool for gauging how creative our workplace behavior is right now, and how it can be made more creative in the future. Presented in a supportive format that recognises individual differences and celebrates the practical power of ideas, the PCA is an excellent activity to conduct in a workshop or group setting where creativity is critical to business success.

Richard will be presenting a half day oral history workshop at Toowoomba Library for ALIA Training, Saturday 5 June, 10 am – 1 pm. For details and to register online, visit http://www.alia.org.au/education/pd/pd.services/oral.history.html
Oral history draws on our rich human tradition of storytelling and narrative to gather and record the unique life experiences of people from diverse traditions and backgrounds.
With appropriate training and the right tools, oral history can be collected by virtually anyone in the community. Public and university libraries are particularly well positioned to facilitate local oral history projects and add value.
Richard Sayers is proud to offer a new and very practical half day workshop introducing the primary tools and techniques of oral history. ALIA will be offering public dates soon. For more information, email [email protected] or telephone +61 (0)410 746 540.
