Let there be Fireworks

May 13, 2013

what do you doInnovation is no longer a destination it’s a journey – it’s such an overused and over-hyped cliché, but it’s one that gets many people to understand that we can no longer innovate solely at annual or semi annual business retreats, strategy meetings, when things have gone wrong or when the whim takes you, but rather that innovation is a constant, minute by minute, living breathing thing that must be integral to every business person and owner.

So having got that off my chest, one of the questions I get asked most often is: “How do you innovate?”.

In this month’s webinar I started a three-part journey taking the audience through my innovation program, a tried and tested program I’ve rolled out to 1,000’s of clients and audiences around the globe.

Part 1 is the non romantic and ever so important phase of getting to know yourself and what you stand for because the one thing I’ve learned over and over again is that there is absolutely no use going out and getting shiny new toys and innovations, if you haven’t got your internals working properly.

We start off with a look at what innovation is; what has caused it to speed up; the illusion that time and space are disappearing and why the best place to find innovation is where digital and physical meet.

We then traveled on to look at the roadblocks to innovation and how you overcome them including silos, fears and boxes (you’ll just have to listen to work it out), before going down the road of how to ensure innovation is always up for discussion, top of mind and drives everyone’s thinking.

My final tip in Part 1 was the question I always ask of my new clients staff and why asking that question late last year, to one client’s workforce of 900 people, brought $10.4 million worth of bottom line improvements, product extensions and fresh new thinking.

Head on to this month’s webinar (47 minutes)and as always let me know your thoughts and questions:

and be sure to reserve your spot for next month’s FREE webinar – Monday 17th June @ 1.00 p.m. AEST Part 2 – where we’ll take a look at the tools, tricks and the “meat and bones” of looking for and capturing innovation – see you then.

Are you a fireplace or fireworks innovator? FREE May webinar invitation

May 7, 2013

Reserve your webinar spot now for Monday 13th May @ 1.00 p.m. (AEST)

Fireplace or fireworks – which describes your business and innovation thinking?

fireplaceFireplaces are comforting, once lit mostly self-sufficient; provide light, warmth and the possibility for cooking as well as offering a central mesmerizing place to stare down at and poke into.

Is this really what you want from your business? To constantly tend and feed a fireplace that absorbs you, entices you, continues to demand you stand vigilant over it at all times and forces you to rebuild it back to its former glory, every time it starts to wane or diminish.

fireworksToday’s businesses, and those that will succeed into the future, are more like fireworks, agile; scanning the sky and looking ahead; constantly predicting, changing and adapting to the environment; exponentially growing and collaboratively building towards a strategized crescendo always knowing that there is another fireworks display just over the horizon.

In the last 3 months I have worked with and surveyed thousands of CEO’s in Australia and New Zealand and found that 84% of them admit that their business, products and practices are fireplaces that haven’t substantially changed in the last 3 years with a further 89% conceding that they would like to be firework businesses, but don’t know how and where to begin.

So for all my fellow firework business owners I’ve dedicated the next three months of FREE webinars to guiding you through the how, why, where, when and who of firework business innovation.

Next Monday 13th May at 1.00 p.m. AEST we’ll start our hands-on journey together through the first of three phases of innovation and I’ll show you, give you examples of and share my tools with you as we explore how to:

1. grow a self-sustaining innovation culture and forward thinking business

2. know and harness your own unique innovation DNA

3. exploit the innovation that already exists around you

4. ask for and get innovation happening around you

5. get others to do your innovating for you, and

6. learn the only question you’ll ever need to ask to profitably kick start your innovation

RESERVE your spot NOW

I’ve developed, tried and perfected my unique secret-sauce blended innovation and foresight process over the last 32 years with solopreneuers, entrepreneurs, business owners, corporations, governments and fellow innovators around the globe and it continues to evolve and to always achieve incredible and profitable innovation and foresight results.

One of these extraordinary projects happened late last year where I embedded the foundations and seeds of an innovation culture across a client’s 900 plus employees; empowered and educated them into the purpose, imperative and methods of innovation; built transparent innovation capture processes and then set the employees free to evolve the company into what they believed it should become.

Within four months they had added $10.4 million of new thinking, products, services and changed work practices and we have only begun to stare into the sky and watch the fireworks go off.

Stop getting lukewarm by the dwindling fire and start getting exhilarated by the infinite possibilities of the fireworks, join me next Monday and let’s start innovating your sky.

3D Printing and Robots – the April Webinar

April 8, 2013

scinec fiction robotScience fiction becomes science fact in my BreadCrumb Innovation webinar this month as I finish off my series of three webinars on my 13 trends for 2013.

This month we took a look at robots in our offices, aged care facilities, warehouses, on the road and pretty much everywhere we look, and the heralding of the 3rd Industrial Revolution, the thing that will for ever change the way we see design, prototyping, manufacturing, retailing and every other thing we do and buy – 3D printing.

These horizon game changers need to be on every decision makers radar strategy screen and we must start thinking now how and when they may start disrupting and changing our world and business.

We also stopped off along the way to celebrate the 40th birthday of mobile phones and explore what this little invention has meant to the world and also chat about a couple of great teenagers with incredible innovation skills and what they’ve invented.

Have a look at this month’s webinar (47 minutes) and be sure to join me on Monday 13th May 2013 @ 1.00 p.m. AEST when I begin a series of webinars sharing the how, what, where, who and why of innovation, taking you behind the scenes of my BreadCrumb Innovation program and show you the step by step proven formula of how I bring Innovation and Foresight to an orgnaisation. click here to reserve your spot.

Ever fancied yourself as a sculptor or inventor? Ever looked at a car, lamp shade or dinner set and said I’d like that, but I wish it also had…….

In the not too distant future your hyperpersonalisation needs and creative genius will unite to be able to give you exactly what you want, where and when you want it.

This little genie is heralding the third industrial revolution, an epic adventure we have already embarked on that will eventually become routine and easily produce one-off spare parts, bespoke tailored clothes, designer houses, tricked up cars and even produce our own replacement human organs right in our own homes, offices, hospitals and workplaces.

In this morning’s Melbourne Age there’s a great article on someone who had lost part of their face to cancer and had it reprinted for him and reattached (great story read it here).

This game changer technology, known as 3D printing, will ultimately revolutionise the way we think, design, produce and manufacture and for those that get into it now, it may offer the riches of a new-found industry.

This disruptive technology will change the way you do business. It will offer you invention, innovation and possibilities that until now you may have considered science fiction, but I’d love to show you how it’s all becoming science fact in my FREE 45 minute webinar on Monday 8th April at 1.00 p.m. AEST.

BOOK NOW

The other major horizon trend we’ll chat about this month is Robots, who doesn’t love a good robot story!

Robots have started to do some really cool things in farming, aged care, education, retail, medicine and even walking around our offices and I’ll show you what to expect from them in the very near future.

As always we’ll stop off along the way to look at what’s new and trending, what’s hot in innovation land and which projects and ideas are getting the global innovation juices flowing this month.

Lots of great stuff this month and as always when we know future, we think future and do future, so…
