Michael Lee is a rare combination – a working creative professional who is also trained and skilled in facilitating creativity and innovation breakthroughs for leaders, companies, teams, and coaches.
He is a filmmaker whose shows have won 5 South African Film and TV Awards (SAFTAs). He is also a certified Master of Creativity and Innovation Coaching as well as a Thought Leadership, Executive, Laughter, Recovery, Cross-Cultural, and Abundance Coach, and Master NLP Practitioner.
He is a Global Innovation Advisor to the Silicon Valley firm Innovation Minds, an Ambassador to World Creativity and Innovation Week, and consults regularly on these topics in media in
forums such as the Mail and Guardian and Radio 702.
His concept of “Innotivity™”, the basis of the Innotivity Institute, is derived from combining innovation and creativity into one word, a simplification with many meanings behind it. Understanding these meanings can help solve the challenges most organisations experience with innovation. His books Everything is Innovation and INNOTIVITY: A Mind Makeover Manual will be coming out soon.
