Hi First name / friend,
This month we saw some staggering stats.

When it comes to workplaces, *79% of people are often too stressed to cope and in the UK alone, the **annual cost of conflict is £28.5 billion.
So, this month, we'll explore making rest a habit, breaking business norms and finding your creative confidence in an event called ‘Stop Looking For Permission To Be Creative’.
And on a much more positive note, we've also found through the findings of The January Challenge 2023 Impact Report that 82% of people who got creative this January agreed it had a positive effect on their wellbeing!
That's a business case to become a Creativity Champion where you are if ever we heard one.
