Bite-sized Learning: Cross-industry innovation to unlock new ideas 

We're here to put a dent in the universeOtherwise why else even be here?” - Steve Jobs

Running dry of ideas? Not sure how to get your business noticed?

It’s easy to obsessively study your competitors for things to copy, avoid or improve upon. But what if you looked for inspiration in far more unlikely places?

Your next groundbreaking idea is closer at hand than you imagine. You just need to know where to look.

Innovative ideas are the result of venturing into unknown territory and being relentless in the pursuit of making it work regardless of risk. Limitation is creativity’s worst enemy.

Limit where you look for inspiration, and you find yourself falling short of greatness every time. Did you know the Apple Genius Bar was inspired by a hotel concierge? And that the first sushi conveyor belt was inspired by the baggage carousel system in airports?

We’ll explore what your business could learn from the arts, education, healthcare or an entirely different industry – from customer service to the presentation of ideas, and product development to staff wellbeing.

In this Bite-sized session you will discover:

  • How the most successful businesses have “learned” from other industries – and how you can, too.

  • How to break free from the confines of your industry and discover a new perspective.

  • The steps you can take to explore old processes in a new way to keep your business at the top of its game.
