What is a Business Innovation Workshop?

Our Business Innovation Workshops will give you access to industry and academic knowledge and expertise, as well as help identify new ways to stimulate innovative ideas for business growth. They will also aid in identifying new opportunities, such as product innovation, to achieve your business development objectives.

Our Business Innovation Workshops will also offer you opportunities to connect with other businesses looking to generate innovative ideas for business growth, introducing you to your own business innovation potential across many industry sectors.

What do Business Innovation Workshops cover?

Our Business Innovation Workshops help you to identify business innovation opportunities that enable you to create a successful business growth strategy. They are delivered in three parts:

Workshop One - Envisioning business growth through business innovation:

This workshop will help you understand how to envision your future in different scenarios for regional, national and international contexts. You will explore the uncertainties in your environment and use these uncertainties to develop plausible images of the future. Tools will be provided to anticipate the impact of the alternative future scenarios. You will learn how to understand the present and prepare more effectively for future strategies.
