Speaking Topics Include

Ideas are easy - Create better products and services with data driven innovation

We tend to think that the best innovation start with an idea. Almost the opposite is true. They start with a "problem". In this presentation Gavin steps through the four dimensions of a "problem worth solving" and shares case studies on how companies like Qantas and Johnson & Johnson have used data to drive product and service innovation.

 

Don't fail fast - reverse the startup mantra to create corporate ventures that scale

The startup mantra is to "Fail Fast". But in the corporate world, if you fail, you're likely to be fired. That means some of the best corporate ideas never see the light of day. In this presentation Gavin shows you how to rethink corporate innovation - reversing the startup focus on product-market fit, and choosing market-product fit to rapidly build brands, scale product and deliver competitive advantage.
