> improved teamwork

 
 

innovate, or perish.

 
 

Every day, from every corner, small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and non-profit leaders are called to innovate or perish, and as Peter Drucker said, business essentially consists of new ideas and marketing. But where do you start? Where will these new ideas come from, and How do you get new results from the same people? And there is so much written and published about creativity and innovation… what is worthwhile and what is snake oil? Where do you focus? And there’s always a risk that scattered efforts will waste time and move you in the wrong direction. You know you can’t stand still and that you have to move ahead. What to do?

A lifetime of innovation
to serve you

 

James Todd provides you with an insight into the real-life processes and practices for managing innovation, demystifies the real-life experience of creativity at work, and helps you master the practical mechanics of innovation.  His presentation and training cover the four essentials to understanding innovation: personal creativity, teamwork, culture and leadership. Working with these ideas gives SME and cause sector leaders the tools they need to adjust, adapt and innovate in the changing business dynamic.
