Testimonials from people from many professions, countries and age ranges

Since 1993, The Creativity Workshop has been working with people from many different professions, nations, and age ranges to help them discover or rediscover their unique creativity. A typical workshop will be represented by an exciting mix of participants from different countries and professions ranging from CPAs to artists, medical doctors, educators, and CEOs. This makes for great group dynamics in all our workshops. Here is what some participants have to say about their Creativity Workshop experience.
