Back in 2006, Inventium’s founder, Dr Amantha Imber was working as a consumer psychologist in a big advertising agency. The agency had put her through a lot of creative thinking training which she loved. However, when she started getting deeper into researching the field, she realised that all these training companies had done was rip off Edward de Bono techniques from the 70s and re-package them as their own. She thought that, ironically, this was pretty uncreative.

She noticedthat there were hundreds, if not thousands, of studies being conductedaround the world that looked at what variables increased a person’sability to think more creatively and a company’s ability to innovate.However, she realised that there was a great divide between this greatresearch that was being done in the world of academia, and what wasactually getting used in the ‘real world’.So in 2007, she had the idea of starting a company that applied thescience of psychology and neurology to boosting creativity andinnovation - something that had never been done before. SinceInventium opened its doors, Amantha and her team, have helpedliterally thousands of people across Australia, the United States, the UK,Europe, Africa and New Zealand improve their ability to generate greatideas.
