Gvantsa Kikalishvili is a communication expert and art manager with a background in journalism. She has experience working in the local and international markets with a demonstrated history of working in the public, financial and NGO sectors.
Gvantsa graduated from Erasmus Rotterdam University in 2020 with a focus on social theories and theories about art perception. She transformed her art passion to her new profession and after returning to Georgia started her own startup Art Inception Georgia - the first art communication platform that aims to connect Georgian artists with local and global audiences.
“I love art, I believe in the power of art and I know that bringing art to everyday life is as essential to any society as physical safety or economic development. The pandemic has been hard, but it has shown that without art, it is almost impossible to be a human. Art is the best and unique way of communication”.

Three things you need to know about your creativity in order to successfully break rules in your field of work
What personal skills do you need to succeed in your career as an entrepreneur, leader or niche expert?
Ever since 2010, when IBM published the Global CEO Study, creativity was singled out as one of the most required personal skills for future success. The World Economic Forum’s latest report on The Future of Jobs, creativity, originality and initiative maintained the top position as the skills in focus for reskilling and upskilling programs in companies. The WEF’s reports aggregate the views of chief executives, chief strategy officers and HR officers on topics like, technology adoption, jobs and skills in the next five years.
However, there seems to be a gap between the offer for learning creativity and the actual involvement of employees in the respective courses. On average, employers expect to offer reskilling and upskilling to just over 70 % of their employees by 2025. However, employee engagement into those courses is lagging, with only 42 % of employees taking up employer-supported reskilling and upskilling opportunities.
Despite the disengagement, the need for creative thinking in entrepreneurial, intrapreneurial, leadership and expert roles remains a reality. Maybe one of the reasons for lack of enthusiasm in learning creativity is that despite the hype about the importance of creativity for managing complexity, transforming business models and challenging status-quo, there is a lack of understanding about the way creativity applies in business.
In this webinar, we aim at clarifying what creativity is from the neuroscience point of view, what is your understanding and how you can nurture your creative thinking, if you choose to. Provided you have the intention to stand out through your ideas and actions at work.
