Through unique, innovative and empowering team building events for groups of up to 1,000, Gregory Burns helps participants reinforce company culture and values by creating amazing artwork that staff craft in a collaborative effort that is a testament to the team and their objectives. With exceptional results, Gregory has shared his art and stimulated creativity through numerous programs worldwide, re-igniting the creative spirit in all those he guides.
The process of visualizing, humanizing and personalizing company culture creates a strong connection and ownership for participants. Encouraging teamwork and free expression, Gregory’s methodology stimulates participants to reengage with their creativity and colleagues. While drawing, painting and collaging, participants step outside their ‘default’ lives and become immersed in a creative journey of discovery. These dynamic workshops promote positive interpersonal communications, make employees feel good about where they work and grow, and produce a lasting piece of art that will consistently reinforce their expression of the company’s values.
“Company values are usually pieces of paper with words on them. Painting forces us to embody and internalize them.” – Gregory Burns
Holding a Master of Fine Art in Painting from RMIT in Australia and educated in Europe, America, and Asia, as a professional fine artist, Gregory diverges from the status quo without the luxury of road maps or sign posts. He believes that lessons learned in the painting studio can shed light on the creative and communicative processes essential to today’s businesses. The results have been stunning.
