Growth through innovation is costly, complex and not at all certain. But in today’s rapidly changing and demanding market, relying on the status quo is an untenable strategy. Leaders are facing constant pressure to deliver short-term results while finding and investing in growth opportunities that require resources, but may or may not produce the desired outcome. The good news is there is a realistic and proven path to deliver growth through innovation.
Through the Seek, Seed and Scale framework, I offer leaders a way to identify market-driven, high potential ideas, the specific steps and tools that really matter to convert an idea into a commercial reality, and how to lead effectively through the inevitable, daily obstacles that tend to derail or diminish innovation.
From a wealth of experience as a chief marketing and innovation officer in demanding, financially driven, complex companies, and as a board member and startup adviser, I have developed the Seek, Seed and Scale framework for leading innovation. The framework:
I begin by understanding your growth challenges and innovation priorities, then tailor recommendations that tap into the wealth of experience I bring from a combination of c-suite roles, startup relationships, and insights gained from researching The Change Maker’s Playbook. My goal in every engagement is for clients to walk away with a realistic and proven approach to innovate with greater predictability, and understand how to get from insights and ideas to in-market success.
Drawing upon my experience as a seasoned leader and innovation operator, the Leading Innovation keynote takes audiences from the beginning to the end of the process. I offer ways to identify high potential unmet market needs, and from there, provides a proven framework for “what to do next” and how to lead through the inevitable, daily challenges any organization will face in pursuit of innovation.
Leaders will walk away with immediately useable advice and tools to solve meaningful problems for their customers, more reliably deliver innovation results, and have enduring, positive impact on the culture and capabilities of their organization.
