Have you ever wondered why it’s so often so difficult to make new ideas work?

In a world where disruptive business models and new hybrid ways of working are overturning the established order in everything from transport and hospitality to healthcare and entertainment, innovation is having a big moment.  However, innovation efforts often fail because the right skills, knowledge, culture or processes aren’t harnessed to create the intended impact.  A recent report from PA Consulting found that, while two-thirds of organisations say that innovation is critical to their survival, less than one third think they are any good at it.

Having been a senior learning & development professional for over two decades, Daniel Wain has long been involved in helping organisations to drive successful innovation, through leveraging the talent and diversity of their people.  He has long believed that everyone has a role to play in innovation, not just lone geniuses, inspired thinkers or ‘creatives’.  Successful new ideas depend far less on individual lightbulb moments than clarity of purpose, a step-by-step people-centered process and, above all, collaboration and teamwork.

In this interactive Entrepreneur Network talk, Daniel will outline the fundamental principles that drive successful innovation and underpin the Six ‘I’s® framework, supported by real-life case studies.  The session will equip you with tangible tools and a tried and tested approach that will enable, and hopefully inspire, you (and those with whom you work) to become truly innovative.
