What I do

Extended description

My primary activity is “Innovation Stimulation” through public speaking, keynotes, board / team briefings and workshops.

Having spent over 30 years leading innovation initiatives across a wide variety of industries, I have devised my own metaphor to articulate the “Innovation Ecosystem” in order to move thinking in an organisation from “innovation is something done over there” to “this is how we become more innovative in everything we do”.

This isn’t a “framework” to apply out of the box. It’s a way of thinking intended to accelerate a culture change in a department, division or across an entire organisation.
