Hillary - Founder/Creative Director, Cork & Chroma Australia
Hillary joins us in Tulum all the way from Brisbane, Australia. With over six years experience facilitating creative workshops in her studios across Australia, Hillary has witnessed time and time again the positive influence of igniting our creativity. She was recently appointed chapter host of Creative Mornings/Brisbane, a global community and free monthly event speaking series.
Last year the World Economic Forum and LinkedIn named creativity as the top skill needed in the workplace by 2020. This led to Hillary presenting her keynote series 'Creativity at Work' on a multi-city corporate roadshow, and at Google headquarters in Sydney. Her yoga training has combined with her creative talents and, serendipitously, landed her in supporting Carrie in this very magical retreat experience.
Everyone is creative, but not everyone has creative confidence. Hillary’s mission is making creativity accessible and she specialises in crafting environments that are conducive to connecting with your unique creative flow. Her lighthearted but heartfelt way will leave you feeling inspired, excited to discover the infinite expression within us all.
