Co-Founder - Product Development
Anita finds the pragmatic approach to realising the big mission for The Creativity Hub. Her role in product development is to take (what are often) abstract, complex ideas and translate them into usable playthings.
She likes to play challenging games with rules that can be summarised on one side of a card. Imagine!
Co-Founder - Product Development
Rory (tempered by Anita) holds the big vision for The Creativity Hub. He finds ways to turn his experience in the performing arts, creative problem solving, conflict resolution and energy psychology into games and playthings. He also tries (sometimes successfully) to apply what he has learned to the running of the company.
He likes to play games...a lot. He doesn’t mind losing as long as the game results in a good story to tell!
Amanda is our Financial Controller. She helps achieve our mission by bringing her experience in the finance sector to both our strategic decisions and the day to day financial needs of the company. Amanda ensures that we can fund the expansion of our product range and participate in projects such as Camp Zeitouna which are key to the Creativity Hub vision.
Amanda likes to play card games where strategy and forward thinking are essential.
