Grounded Creativity is offered by its founders, Mark Harmer and Chris Nichols – who together have almost fifty years of organisational experience.
Chris Nichols is a director in Ashridge Consulting, where he co-leads the strategy engagement practice. Chris has been with Ashridge for eight years and has wide experience of directing leadership development and large group processes. Chris is also an accredited Ashridge Executive Coach. His past experience has included directorship with Price Waterhouse, government sector experience, and spells in senior roles in major organisations globally. Chris combines business and strategy skills with psychological and group analytic experience to create a unique approach to senior leader learning and group exploration.
Mark Harmer is an organisation consultant and professional musician. He worked extensively in development roles for the BBC, using video, audio and collaborative online models as part of his learning design. His use of music lets people experience the power of free dialogue in groups towards a common, co-created goal - something all too rarely experienced in organisations. Mark also runs an online business and produces learning resources to support creativity, most recently a DVD for Gloucestershire Council sharing best practice in working musically with under-7s.
