Your speaking events were a
great success. In an unprecedented flood of written comments, the words:
“Fantastic”, “Excellent”, “More please”, “Really enjoyed it”, and lots more in
similar themes confirmed how
good your events were. I also would like to thank you for your exceptionally friendly and professional
cooperation which made the events easy to run and stress free. I can’t ever
remember managing an equivalent event and having fun doing so!

What is really great is that each one of the team
recognised that by applying some of your ideas and techniques they can
understand problems, issues, customers and work mates better and ultimately
come up with better and more creative solutions and ideas. Creativity and Innovation has now taken on a new
priority at Antec and in fact the very next day we worked with a customer to
come up with a new product design. It was our first new design for
this product in almost ten years.

YKK, as a consultant to Slade Group on Creative Thinking in Business and Creative
Thinking in Recruitment, has really allowed us to 'unzip our minds', and let
loose our craziest ideas. We've learnt that it's often the craziest ideas,
tamed, that end up being the leapfrog strategy. I
highly recommend Dr YKK to Australian organisations; he brings a fresh
approach, global commercial experience and a very endearing personal style.

and I have already began implementing the recommendations you made to us
regarding the most useful and targeted promotion of our business.
again thank you and I look forward to working with you
further in the future.

YKK's session really got me thinking. There's a lot of "stuff" these
days about unlocking the creative potential of businesses - I expected Dr. YKK’s
session to be just another one of those.
was thought provoking, it was motivating, but it was also substantial. I've
already shamelessly plagiarized a number of Dr. YKK’s observations, and I plan
to keep doing it.
worth the time.
YKK is an amazing motivational and creativity speaker.
He's incredibly clever at showing you how to open the door to thinking
outside the mainstream. It was also really good fun and I was
completely taken with his workshop. When we left, Bill and I couldn't stop
talking about the "thinking differently" with our business.

“You have addressed our
challenges during his talk and provided creative inputs on how they could be
met. You have facilitated some wild ideas generation session on building
synergies between business units and then tone it down for possible practical
implementation. The entire session was highly inspiring and gave us valuable
insights into the tools for creativity and how to apply them in our business.”

"When comes to churning out creative
solutions, Dr YKK wouldn't take 'no' for an answer - even for the toughest
business problems. In our case study of an ailing company, I thought the
business problem we had chosen was insurmountable. After going through the
creative session, we saw so many possibilities. We didn't just see the light at
the end of the tunnel – the entire tunnel was brightened up. There are so many
things that can be done to almost every aspect of the business."

“Dr.YKK’s talk was profound, creative and highly provocative, just what our
company needed. It was profound because he was able to match our three-pronged
strategic plans to the three dimensions of innovation. He provided practical
creative inputs to our business development and then provoked us to take specific
actions. His passion and commitment to us shone throughout his presentation. I
find his presentation captivating and transformational.”

“My personal creative
sessions with Dr YKK provided me with the impetus and ideas on how to proceed
with the writing of my first book. He even challenged me with a unique and
provocative title for my book "You Can't Manage Your Money…. Especially
When You're Rich"." The contents of my book are a direct result of my
response to his challenge.”

“Dr YKK’s Creativity
Workshop brings to life the unlimited potential in each one of us. It is fun,
yet it challenges us to see things far differently. I am confident in due time
that it will dramatically impact on my personal and career life. For as long as
I can creatively use my mind and follow the basic principles of Dr YKK’s
Creativity Workshop, nothing is impossible!”

This was a very stimulating
workshop. Not only did we manage to generate a lot of new ideas, but the most
important thing might be that the team realised why creativity is a key success
factor in today's tough market place. If participants in the workshop take the
perspectives and techniques we learnt back to their workplaces that would
be a very valuable thing for the company.

“YKK has the gift of
tailoring his talk to the specific needs of his audience. At the First
Networking Forum 2002 of The Lion Group, he was able to use the 'power of
connections' among our subsidiary companies to boost their creativity in
synergistic marketing to a higher level. We were motivated and energised to
explore new possibilities for future business ventures.”

workshop was a real mind-opening experience for me and my colleagues. The
simple yet powerful Mindxercises enable us to think beyond our present
constraints. The lessons learnt are extremely useful and practical to our
ongoing restructuring exercise. I highly recommend this course to senior
executives involved in strategic planning."

"Dr YKK’s workshop has shown us the impact of
creativity on our lives. The participants, consisting of professors, lecturers
and final year students alike have realised the importance of creativity and
how it enhances their lectures and research activities. Students too found
that their thinking skills have improved considerably. Overall, it was a very
enriching experience that benefited all of us."
