Finding Your Inner Creative For Business And Life

Event details

In this engaging, immersive talk, our guest speaker Jay Stansfield will show you how to find your Inner Creative to bring excitement, creativity and joy into your work projects and homelife. Jay will also let you into the secret of how getting more creative can help propel your business forwards.

As children many of us would have been at our most creative, constantly curious, inventive and happy with it. When we become adults with responsibilities, and businesses, we feel the need to be professional and serious. We often lose that childlike approach to life, that spontaneous creativity that can bring us joy and fabulous ideas. Via the emerging world of Virtual Reality (VR), Jay will show us how to recapture that childlike wonder and reconnect with our Inner Creative and how that can help us and our businesses to grow as a result.

Jay Stansfield is an artist, illustrator, musician and creative Dad from Colne in Lancashire. He’s been drawing, illustrating and creating for over two decades and loves making people smile. Jay’s most recent illustration commission is for international artist ‘Lanksy’ who wrote a story called Life O’ Pie, a magazine created to combat loneliness and isolation in East Lancashire.

Jay has also published a colouring journal for children called Squibbles and a children's book called Meet The Squibbles. The feedback from his work is always positive and he relishes meeting new people and working with new businesses on creative uplifting projects.

Further information

One of FSB’s objectives is to value diversity and inclusion in everything it does and the strength of FSB rests on attracting the greatest number and diverse small business owners and the self-employed which reflect the whole of the UK business population. We therefore want existing and new small business owners and the self-employed, from whichever communities they belong to, to feel welcomed and a part of the FSB community.

All of our events, whether focused on a specific issue or equality characteristic, are therefore open to all. This also underpins the notion of allyship where marginalised groups are supported by those not from the specific groups or communities and offers mutual benefits for shared learning, wider conversations and a collective responsibility to inclusivity. If you have any questions please email the event organiser here: Vicky Rooney.
