The Innovation Advantage:

Have you ever wondered how some businesses consistently come up with better ideas, better products and better customer experiences? Is the ability to generate good ideas something you are born with or something that can be learned? Bill Whitley believes that innovation, ideation and ingenuity can be learned. In his soon to be released book, 20 Ways to Increase Innovation, Whitley shares 20 powerful strategies that will help you generate ideas that will leave the competition in the dust.

During this seminar you will learn:

1. The three most powerful ways to generate fresh new ideas

2. Seven ways to collect ideas and knowledge and create an “Idea Bank”

3. How to “flip the switch” and inspire yourself to take action

4. How to communicate your ideas so that everyone “gets it”

There will be an audio recording of this seminar which will be made available to all attendees.
