Most of us go through life doubting our own talents and abilities. We look towards other people that have succeeded and we try to copy their ideas and do what they are doing. We are not original or unique and keep our best talents and most original ideas trapped inside. We fear what other people may think and so we continue to produce work that is an inferior copy of someone else’s.
Your best work is your work; it is original and is uniquely yours. It comes from inside you and does not resemble the work of someone else at all. Nowhere is this more important than in the field of creativity where we must make hundreds of connections in the brain, become smarter, think faster and be more astute as we find the lucrative A-Ha moments in daily life.
With practical examples, this book shows you just how easy it is to come up with big ideas. Debra shares simple, effective and time tested actions that we can all implement daily. After all it’s the ideamen that get ahead in life! Are you ready to join ranks with the world’s leading innovators?
To climb the corporate success ladder you need innovative thinking and lots of it. So where do you find these innovative solutions? How do you create a constant and never-ending flow of new ideas? The secret lies in building a strong creativity foundation. This is exactly what Debra Langley shows you how to do. So if you'd like to succeed and need the ideas to help you do it, you've come to the right place.

Despite being a High School teacher, and thus very judgmental when I heard the start of the story of the 3 little pigs, your talk was both entertaining and informative. It was also applicable to all of the teachers who attended – from Pre-Prep through to the FET. Thank you for sharing the 5 tools to pack in my tool box – I try to remember them in class, every day.
As an educator needing motivation and a Head needing to provide inspiration for my staff, it is often a “hit and miss” finding a speaker who is both relevant and practical in providing both motivation and inspiration. Debbie Langley addressed our staff according to our 2014 theme of “Think, Create, and Educate” and did so with great gusto. Her use of a story and suitable voice changes kept everyone engrossed in her talk, which was both inspiring and motivating. Our staff loved the practical concept of a creativity toolbox and the comments after the presentation were all positive. One staff member mentioned that she would rather listen to Debbie Langley speak 20 times over rather than some of the guest speakers who have presented at our school and conferences in the past.
I like to think that my talks and training sessions are unique and not something everyone has heard before. My books, workshops, keynote talks and personal coaching services are designed to help make people grow and become the best version of themselves. Browse through some of my recent talk topics below and let me know if anything catches your interest or alternatively contact me and we can tailor make something to suit your needs.
