What People Say
Capturing Jessica's expansive talent, skill and creative expression in a short blurb is no easy task. She has an ability to make 'creativity' an every day lived experience that enriches all parts of daily life. Whether I am thinking through the most mundane of experiences or taming the excitement of a diffusive idea, Jessica's approach is playful and no-nonsense. She has been my creative go-to for many years and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to see life, projects and big bold ideas from a new, actionable and authentic perspective.
As a sixty five year old man during an epidemic, I found Jessica Outram's energetic and prolific work on the subject of creativity to be a wake up call. New ideas and old memories have blended together to open up my mind again. I recently participated in a workshop about revising creative work, and it helped me to focus on what I wanted to achieve with my latest project. Stepping back, seeing the big picture, and targeting objective. Thanks to Jessica Outram.
I'm also grateful for the positive atmosphere in the Creativity Coaching Canada environment. Thanks!

I joined Jessica's "Creative Spiral" live chat on zoom, and expected it to be fun and casual (which it was!) - but it was so much more. Her level of professionalism, wisdom, and willingness to both share and listen was inspiring. Her content was on-point, and I left the chat feeling ready to create! If you are a creative person who needs to move through a block, join us! If you are new to creating, and want support and inspiration, join us! Thank you Jessica for sharing your creative spirit and knowledge with us. I wish I could join alllll your events.
Jessica is one of the most creative people I know. Every time I connect with her, I am inspired with new ideas and different ways of thinking. She is an experienced coach and excellent communicator. A real treasure to us all.
I'm so glad I attended Jessica's workshop on Creativity! It was impressive and light-filled with her own inimitable respect and encouragement for all participants. She speaks from the heart and from the wisdom of many sources including her Metis origins and writers such as Bell Hooks and Emily Dickinson. I especially liked the suggestion that we include the four elements earth/air/water/fire in our story creations, and I have already mentally planned a memoir piece using these elements - to honour our connection to oceans, plants and photosynthesis. Thank you, Jessica, for the inspiration.
Jessica is a fantastic teacher. Very good at getting the important points across and helping to understand how best to be creative. Very very beneficial.
Cornerstone had the pleasure of working with Jessica at a recent wellness workshop for our staff. She provided our staff with a guided workshop on finding creativity in everyday. Jessica provided staff with a beginners lens of how to be mindful and notice the beauty in different ways in the world around us. It was a great way to kick off our day together and I look forward to working with Jessica again in the future.
Jessica's creativity workshops are motivating, encouraging, supportive, clever, encompassing. I appreciate them greatly. I was in a bit of a lull with my writing although with your spirals of creativity I am now back at writing full force.
Jessica's approach to creative coaching is unlike anything that I have ever experienced. It is always original, every topic is so beautifully researched, with information, questions, artwork, and prompts that nudge your brain into a space that you would not have thought of on your own. The classes are filled with interesting people also exploring their creative boundaries, so the classes are lively and discussion is rich. Highly recommended!
