Business Breakfast: Innovation in Finance & Law with Strategic Innovation


Business Breakfast: Innovation in Finance & Law with Strategic Innovation

Innovation in the finance sector

The Future Economy Network are really excited to be co-hosting this business breakfast with our subscribers Strategic Innovation.


The aim of this event is understanding how to develop new services and improve business performance is essential to meeting the increasing demands of global competition. Normally this is thought of as the role of innovation.  Much is written about innovation – but is heavily focused on technical product development. The service sector, and especially finance and law are missing out.

This workshop provides a practical understanding of the key methods used by the world’s most successful innovators. You will learn tools and techniques carefully selected to address the needs of service organisations.

1    Objectives:

a)     Understand what innovation is / what innovation means and why it matters

b)     Introduction to some of the systematic innovation tools we use

c)     Applying the tools in your sector


2    Overview

Most people think innovation is about product development and applies most to technology companies.  At Strategic Innovation, we think it’s much more than that and it applies to you, your team, and your company - whatever your industry or your mission.

This workshop will give you another perspective on innovation and help you to be the change you want to see….

Paul Frobisher, Director at Strategic Innovation, will start by running us through our model of innovation and how it applies to every company, even you!  We’ll then take a look at some of the systematic innovation tools we use to innovate, followed by an interactive workshop where we’ll apply some of these powerful tools to challenges in your industry.
