Making Innovation Inevitable: Tips, skills and insights in creating a culture of innovation

Guest Presenter:

  • Laszlo Gyorffy, President, Enterprise Development Group

The Workshop

True innovators set the bar.  They welcome market disruption. They see change as an opportunity to produce new levels of customer value, redefine the terms of competition, and dictate the future of their industry.

We are delighted to welcome Laszlo Gyorffy from Silicon Valley to host this taster session designed to help managers become leaders of innovation. Despite strained budgets and diminishing resources, managers at all levels must continue to find answers to pressing business challenges.  The easy-to-use innovation techniques introduced in this workshop will bring a discipline to how you satisfy increasingly complex customer demands and grow your company.  You will learn how leaders foster a culture of innovation, then tap the creative talents of their team to achieve breakthrough results and reset the bar to new heights on a daily basis.

Highlights from the agenda include:

  • How to play the nine roles required for successful innovation leadership
  • A powerful, but easy to use innovation tool for developing the full potential of an idea
  • Methods for inspiring people to step up and champion their ideas
  • A self-assessment of your innovation leadership skills
  • Case studies and examples from exemplar innovators like Apple and the BBC

Who should attend?

Executives, directors, department heads, managers, project team leads, and entrepreneurs
