We’ve been told by the Turnbull Government we need to focus on Innovation in 2016. Have you thought about how you’re going to do that in your company?

We’ll be examining how you can do this from both ‘inside’ your business through fostering a culture of innovation and ‘outside’ of your business - as research points to the idea that real innovation arises from encounters with partnership between groups with different capabilities.

Topics we’ll be exploring include:

  • Building a high performance work culture
  • Frills and thrills – how to attract and retain talent
  • How to embrace ‘failure’
  • How to benefit from new technology-enabled markets for labour and skills
  • Trends like the Gig Economy and the Uberization of Work

Perfect for SMEs and start-ups to learn how to foster a culture of innovation and make the most of limited resources.
