About Brainy Podcasts

Welcome to the first 6 episodes of BRAINY PODCASTS the brainchild of Soraya Shaw & Tracy Filler. Soraya and Tracy are connected by their passion for understanding what makes people tick, or as Ruby Wax describes it what’s going on with our ‘mother ship’?

So, what’s got them all hot under the collar enough to join the saturated podcast world? Well, quite simply the conversations they’ve been having with each other and those around them, they thought “If we find this fascinating, perhaps we are not alone and these discussions need to be heard”, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive!

This first in the Brainy Podcast series explores the wider context of creativity and innovation, specifically with its importance for becoming integrated into a business's culture for growth and success in the rapidly tech-driven world.

We've explored with our guests What is it? Who has it? Why that matters and how it will impact our futures. We’ve been joined by inquisitive, creative and business focused minds from different walks of life to those who need convincing they fit this description at all.

Whatever your understanding or view, we are confident that these podcasts will help you navigate your own thoughts on creativity, ideation and innovation to fuel and light your imagination. As a leader and a successful business, we'll add to your strategy, give direction so you can take action on building your teams and business's creativity and innovation, resulting in improved products, services and business growth.

Along with our guests 'know-how' and applied neuroscience, we'll be feeding your curiosity and helping you connect with the potential of your brain and all the brains in your organisation.

Looking through the lens of the latest scientific evidence of what’s happening in our brain when we lead, collaborate, come up with new ideas, new ways of working, or solving a problem and how to have more of them. This is all presented in a non-sciencey language that we can all understand!
