Please note this is Part Two of the Innovation workshop series (see 16 January 2018 event for details of the first workshop)

This innovation and creativity training program covers a broad spectrum of innovation methodologies and provides the tools you need to turn ideas into innovations.

The programme is divided into two one-day courses. Delegates can choose to attend one or both courses depending upon their experience and stage in the innovation process.


Who is it for?

Our ideation workshop is not just for entrepreneurs or innovators, it’s to give vets and vet nurses the tools and techniques to create new or nurture existing ideas - they can be ideas for starting a new business, a new product, new content, or even just inventive ways of talking about or marketing an existing product or service.


What will I get from the workshop?

20 February 2019: Course Two - Development and Commercialisation

Part 1: Evaluating and Refining Solutions (AM Session – Day 2)

In part one of this course you will learn how to test your ideas and refine solutions. Guen and Greg will again bring their expertise, but they will also be joined by a series of engaging and experienced speakers with valuable stories about what works well and what can go wrong.

Part 2: Exploiting Business Opportunities (PM Session – Day 2)

In part two you will start to learn how to develop and refine your business model so that you can maximise the chances of your innovation’s success. Finally, we will cover the importance of storytelling in winning support and funding for your idea, focusing on the building blocks of a successful pitch, whether this be to your manager or investors.


You will be equipped with the knowledge to verify if the assumptions around your idea are valid. You’ll crystallise your plan to move from having an idea in your head to a real plan to launch a new business, product or service.

You will leave with a clear understanding of how to analyse ideas, build and assess business models and to pitch your innovation to win crucial external support.
