Monica and the InnovatorsBox team did a fantastic job making creativity something tangible and process driven. Their exercises got the group to bond together quickly, to come up with dozens of new ideas, and helped us re-examine what we could be capable of if we deliberately made creativity a part of our daily routine. The world is in desperate need of what their team has to offer !"

" The creative workshop Monica provided my IBM team enlightened our understanding and ability to be creative in the workplace. The workshop was a reminder as well as a practice of how we as individuals and as a team can be imaginative and innovative in many different aspects of life. Needless to say, we all felt like better employees and better people after the workshop ended. Highly recommend! Thank you, Monica!"
— Amanda Gossman, Consultant, IBM
" Monica has introduced a new way of working at Booz Allen. Through InnovatorsBox workshops at our Innovation Center and annual Ideas Festival in Washington, DC, employees have had the chance to explore what creativity means in a business setting and how to apply new thinking to tired problems. These practices are essential learning for not only bringing change into an environment, but a level of comfortability in embracing creativity as a fundamental discipline for innovation. Thank you!"
— Kristen Dalton, Innovation Center, Project Teams & Operations, Booz Allen Hamilton

" InnovatorsBox is an amazing space to open your mind. It gives you the opportunity to reflect on personal aspects of your life and engage with them on a deeper level. The structure of the exercises helps you think through and see things from a different perspective. Through InnovatorsBox, I appreciate that creativity is a state of mind and how important it is to practice creativity regularly as a habit. This is why I continue to return to their workshops."

" Johns Hopkins University SAIS was absolutely thrilled with the services received by Monica from InnovatorsBox. We had the opportunity to experience a full afternoon of fun, engaging, and thought-provoking activities that are designed to encourage creativity in the workplace. I personally recommend InnovatorsBox for any person or organization seeking professional or personal development opportunities."
— Tanya McMillian, Assistant Director of Office of Financial Aid, School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University
" The real genius of InnovatorsBox is that they help you realize your own potential. For account staff at a public affairs agency, it’s easy to see creativity as “someone else’s job.” But when Monica spoke at our company’s spring training, she helped us see that there was space for creativity in every part of our work. "
- Alexandra Dickinson, Director & Chief of Staff, Beekeeper Group
" Somehow creativity seemed like an elusive skill, something that people are either born with or not. It is commonplace in my professional career, so either I get up to speed or get left behind. Thanks to Creative Jump the real challenge was shifting my paradigm a bit to view creativity as a mindset, something that we can build and strengthen over time. You just need to train it like anything else in life."
- Steven A. Rodriguez, Worldwide Startup Community Manager, Global Entrepreneurship Network
As a result of Monica's work, our green business entrepreneurs walked away from the Green Festival Expo B2B Power Session re-energized and more hopeful about their businesses. We are all so fortunate to have the likes of Monica in our wonderful industry. "
- Robert J. Butler, National Progarm Director, Green Festival Expo
"Many people praise the value of creativity and innovation, and say that our organizations and workforce need these qualities in spades. However, few take the time to actually define those traits, much less discuss how to support and inspire them. Monica does not cut corners or function as some bureaucratic training requirement on creativity and innovation. I only recommend Monica and InnovatorsBox to those who are serious about nurturing and growing these values in their everyday personal and professional lives. "
- Jeremy Pesner, Technology and Policy Analyst, Baltimore City Department of Social Services Fellow, Baltimore Corps
"I participated in a creativity workshop with Monica and found it immensely valuable for rethinking the application of creativity exercises and activities in my daily work. From beginning to end, I felt engaged. I took away practical knowledge about creativity that went beyond simply saying “creativity is great”. Whether you’re an artist or accountant, this workshop showed me that anyone can find a space for creativity in their daily routine , and it opens your mind to fresh ideas and new perspective. It’s a highly interactive experience that I encourage any group to explore."
— Corey Ponder Privacy Program Manager, Facebook
" Working with InnovatorsBox was a great experience. The opportunity to be creative while being grounded in our objectives at the same time was exactly what we needed as a new team. I would highly recommend InnovatorsBox to assist organizations in mind mapping and getting creative on tough topics."
