Innovation: why it’s important and how to embed it within the organisation

25 August @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Bournemouth

Innovation is a word thats used an awful lot these days, but what does it actually mean in the context of your business?

The simple definition of the word is that is the “act or process of introducing new ideas, devices or methods” and is often seen as being crucial to the continuing success of any organisation. But with the speed of change increasingly exponentially and new ‘innovations’ being introduced on an almost daily basis, its sometimes hard to see determine which ones are worthwhile to your business. And if you spend all of your time looking past new innovations, how do you get the day-to-day work done?

It’s a potentially massive subject, but we’ve got some brilliant speakers lined up to help us dissect it.

Our host, Matt Desmier, runs the globally renowned innovation conference Silicon Beach and is a partner in the innovation consultancy Think Create Do. He and the team there spend their days working with organisations helping them understand how to be more innovative – and it’s sometimes not as difficult as you might think.

We’re really pleased to be able to welcome Michael Mallia along as a speaker too. Mike is a Business Technologist within the Innovation Team at LV= and has been instrumental in establishing an internal Innovation Lab within the organisation.

Offering us another perspective of innovation within a non-digital or traditional organisation will be William Roberts, Senior Innovation Manager from the RNLI. The RNLI have made a real commitment to innovation and it’ll be interesting to hear how and why.
