Do you confidently have what you need in place to start achieving what you want from this year, or do you need to acquire extra resources to help you meet your goals?

Just like you, we get really excited at new year, and have been very busy planning all the value we want to share with you over the coming months.

We really look forward to assisting you in making this a stunning year. Do get in touch through the links below and watch this space for developments as we bring them into play.


Holistic Creativity


Increasingly, the new core competency is creativity…the game is changing. It isn’t just about Math and Science anymore. It’s about creativity, imagination and above all innovation.

Nussbaum- Business Week special 2005.

Even if we are personally and professionally, inspired and prolific creators, it can still be incredibly hard to create on demand to deadlines and when under stress. Squat Toad offers a training in Holistic Creativity, which is a multi dimensional approach to developing creativity, what facilitates it, what inhibits it, what enables us to deliver on it and what helps us sustain it over time.

Full of tips and tools, it has a four-pronged approach, addressing the elements of and relationships between 4 domains; The Physical, eg environment and movement, the Emotional, eg Gut Instinct, fear of failure, the Mental, eg beliefs and decision making and the Spiritual, eg inspiration and purpose.

As a Training, it can be taken as a whole, or broken down into the 4 domains to explore the elements contained within. These work together, but can be taken in any order to give express access to particular individual, or organisational needs.

If you wish to create a nourishing creative culture, that supports the exploration of ideas and enables the development of powerful creative output and clear strategies for individual and corporate growth, or would like to make better creative decisions, stimulate optimum creative thinking and be able to access a subconscious library of content whenever you wish, please get in touch for more information.

Bespoke trainings and 1:1 Coaching sessions, or programmes are also available on request.

Holistic Creativity Talk

20 minute and 1 hour talks are also offered on this subject, addressing and debunking some of the myths around Creativity and what it means to be creative. It contests the belief that Creativity is only right brained and reveals how we can be more productive and successful coming from a whole brain perspective. It is underpinned by current neuro-scientific and psychological approaches and is fun and informative.
