Presented by Noel Caffrey:



Presented by the 2C Company, this 4-hour seminar content is based on a concept developed by Edward De Bono, which takes into account the six types of thinking which all thinkers need to use to improve the effectiveness of meetings.

The focus will be on showing how each hat type (white, red, green, yellow, blue, red, white) has a particular function at a meeting and how those skills can be used singly to request a type of thinking or in a sequence to explore a subject or to solve a problem.
