Join us this month (10 am-2 pm) to learn about the Art of Writing Successful Applications / Bid Writing – using the Six Thinking Hats method.

In this session, we will delve into the Six Thinking Hats method by Dr Edward de Bono. The premise of the method is that the human brain thinks in several distinct ways that can be deliberately challenged. 

Edward De Bono identified six distinct directions in which the brain can be challenged, which we will be covering in this #BootCamp.
