Nastja Mulej has had the same triangle of interests ever since her first job at 16: communication – writing – teaching. She has tried everything: started as a cleaning lady, continued as a model, was replacing secretaries every summer, anchored her own radio shows on sex, fashion and economy (not at the same time) at the Student Radio, worked for National Television, taught at the university, built her career in PR and advertising… and on the way got her license for motorcycle, squash, horse riding, diving and skydiving, swam with dolphins, went bungee jumping, travelled over 60 countries and wrote thousand of articles.
Being such a renaissance person she worked as an Idea Thinker at New Moment – New Ideas Company, a network of advertising agencies in South East Europe for almost one decade, as Head of New Ideas Department, being a managing director of Ideas Campus and Council for New Thinking.
After giving birth to two wonderful children she focused only in teaching, training, consulting and inspiring creativity in others, being the only licensed trainer of de Bono thinking methods in the country: Six Thinking Hats (for constructive thinking), Lateral Thinking (for creative thinking), Simplicity (to fight complexity) and CoRT (for teaching thinking in schools).
As if this was not enough she found herself interested in the work of Dimis Michaeliedes and got her license to teaching and training the Art of Innovation.
With her help Slovenia is on its way to positive revolution with more and more people practicing constructive and creative, collaborative and deliberate systematic thinking.
