Dee Hennessy PhD
Dee Hennessy is a leading creative facilitator and coach. Following a career in theatre and the arts, Dee has been a group creativity specialist since 1999 working with governments, local government, public sector agencies, universities, research councils, companies, third sector organisations and partnerships to develop strategies, ideas, innovative solutions, bids, teams and individuals. She does this by designing and delivering new formats and unlikely processes for getting people involved, energised and focused.
Dee’s PhD and related academic research introduced and tested innovative and robust methods for knowledge exchange engagement that are now being adopted by the validators of the research: Marc Tassoul, author of Creative Facilitation, Liz Sanders, Founder of Make Tools and Professor Tom Inns, Director of Glasgow School of Art. This approach has also been adopted by Lancaster University where Dee continues to build on four successful years delivering their EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) interdisciplinary research and industry events.
In the past two years Dee has been developing and delivering a new approach to inter-disciplinary research and industry ideation in both Ghana and Kuala Lumpur. She has also worked at RMIT in Melbourne designing a virtual conference format building on her work facilitating EPSRC’s only UK virtual Sandpit.
