#Covid-19 update: This event will now be a live online masterclass, with details provided below. Delegate numbers will be similar to a face-to-face event, enabling participants to have interaction with the speaker and work with other delegates (for example via group work and online polls).

A fully completed and authorised nomination form is required for this event. Those who have previously registered need take no action (other than completing any pre-work). All participants will be sent joining instructions explaining how to access the event online.


It is easy to assume that business innovation = doing different things. In the real world of day-to-day corporate life, however, radical innovation is extremely rare, and what leaders and managers tend to need most are the everyday lateral thinking skills that can help them to keep doing the same things slightly differently.

With this in mind, this session by James Bannerman - the bestselling author of Genius! and Business Genius! - is designed to inspire business professionals to look at the familiar from unfamiliar perspectives, to spark fresh ideas and improved solutions.

The session blends taught input and inspirational case studies with facilitated discussion online.

Key words

The primary theme is INNOVATION and the secondary theme is STRATEGY.

It is relevant to the development of Growth, Mind-set, Creativity, Lateral-thinking, Inspiration, Spark, Leap, Bold.
