Do you want to learn more about how to innovate to grow your business?

Have you got some great ideas, but find it challenging to create the time to make them happen?

If so, then this interactive workshop jam-packed with practical tips and tools to allow you to take action in your business straightaway is for you. Ideas are your competitive currency. They are what make you and your business different from anybody else or any other business out there. You will benefit from some valuable time to think about your own business, reflect on your ideas and identify how you can accelerate your innovation approach for growth.

By attending this workshop, you will:

  • Think more creatively about your business.
  • Identify the innovation potential in your business.
  • Collaborate for more, and better, business outcomes.
  • Innovate for competitive advantage and growth.
  • Capture and prioritise your ideas.
  • Work smarter on your ideas, and make them happen when you are super-busy.

PLUS you will get your own Business Innovation Playbook at the event that you can use to capture the insights you have had in the workshop and put them into action when you get back to work.


The workshop is aimed at:

Business leaders, owners, entrepreneurs or managers who want to maximise business success through fresh-thinking and innovation.

Delivery Partner

The Growth Shed (part of the Change Shed Ltd) helps businesses to change, improve and grow making them more profitable, more enjoyable and future proof. We use a three step approach called Ready? Plan. Grow! to help businesses to grow through a combination of workshops and coaching. Our clients are typically experiencing one of three situations:

1. Growing pains. What worked yesterday is isn’t working today.
2. Growth stalled. You’ve tried various different approaches but haven’t got the results.
3. Growth wave. You need to decide on which “horse to back” to drive even more growth.
