It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Vincent Nolan. Vincent was instrumental in introducing Synectics creative thinking and problem solving techniques, based on the work of William Gordon and George Prince, into the UK. Amongst his many acheivements, he served as Chairman of Synectics Ltd, the European Division of this international creativity and innovation consultancy and he was instumental in establishing UK registered charity, the Synectics Education Initiative (SEI). His most recent publication, which he co-edited with Connie Williams, was Imagine That! - Celebrating 50 Years of Synectics. Vincent was a highly valued member of our International Review Panel and Facilitator of Creativity Live. He will be greatly missed and we would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family.
