Surf the next innovation wave - get ready for 2025

Surf the next innovation wave - get ready for 2025

Presented by Saskia van der Geest - FREE REGISTRATION REQUIRED - (note: this workshop is not part of the Callaghan Innovation program)


The next innovation wave is coming. Are you ready for it? Are you going to enjoy & surf this new innovation wave? Be on the leading edge?

The wave is driven by the changes our planet is facing.  Phrases like Re-manufacturing, System thinking, Biomimicry, Designing for the Circular Economy, etc. will become our new jargon. Are you  ready for it?  Have you thought about how your organisation can make the most of the opportunities the new wave offers?  How it might change your organisation for the better? How you could be leading?

Wondering where to start? Come join this session and pick up some ideas and possible directions. Get a feel for where the opportunities might be for your organisation. There are some brilliant opportunities in this, some awesome innovations. IF you're willing to grab them!

I’m working with clients, helping them with ideas and strategies, pointing out where the opportunities are (there are plenty!) and how to make the most of them. Come and get your thinking started, pick up ideas, new connections.

It's a learner journey for all of us. Start learning!

The innovation wave is coming and you don’t want to become a ‘Kodak moment’, do you?

Interested to learn more? Come join the workshop. 

You'll walk out with ideas, tools and connections to be on your way to be an award winning leader.
