My speaking topics...
We have been living in an era of disruption and rapid change for some time, but never before have we faced changes as rapid and drastic as those caused by the Coronavirus. Suddenly, everything is different.
Over the next few months organisations and businesses will face big challenges. To meet them, they will have to find new and better ways of doing things.
More than ever before, your people need to be equipped with the skills they need to be innovative, so they can be constantly coming up with better ways of doing things.
In eight years hosting ABC-TV’s ‘The New Inventors’ James O’Loghlin worked with over a thousand innovators, and in his entertaining and thought-provoking keynote and/or workshop he will share practical strategies to equip your people with the skills they need to be innovative every day.
In this session you will learn:
How often do you have days when you are so busy you don't have time to think?
Days when there isn't one spare moment to think about how you can improve the way that you do things?
No matter how well your business is doing today, if you keep doing things the same way, in 10 years' time - maybe less - you will have been left behind.
To stay relevant and successful, businesses need to keep coming up with better ways of doing things. In eight years hosting 'The New Inventors' ex-Australian lawyer James O'Loghlin met hundreds of people who thought outside the box and came up with new and better ways of doing things.
During this corporate keynote James O’Loghlin will talk about:
Why every business needs to be continually innovating and how individuals can do it
The three things innovators do better than everyone else, and five things every business can do to build a workplace culture that encourages innovation
Many of us want to focus more on innovation and improving our business, but find that it just doesn’t happen.
What goes wrong?
What factors stop us from being innovative, and how can we overcome them?
In this informative and entertaining keynote former host of “The New Inventors” and innovation expert James O’Loghlin will explain what the 6 most common barriers to innovation are, and how to overcome each one and ensure that making your business better becomes a part of your work every day.
The greatest resource any organisation has is the space between the ears of its people, but many don’t get anywhere near full value from it.
It’s more important than ever for organisations to be innovative, but how do you create a culture where everyone knows that part of their job is to think of better ways of doing things, and where new ideas are captured, assessed, trialled and the best ones implemented?
In this enlightening and entertaining keynote, former host of “The New Inventors” and innovation expert, James O’Loghlin, will share:
How to create a corporate culture where everyone from the CEO to the receptionist is encouraged and expected to be innovative
6 steps to creating an innovative corporate culture
The role of leaders and managers in fostering innovation
How to create a simple, efficient system to grow, assess and harvest
How to embed innovation as an essential part of corporate culture, rather than an ‘extra’ that is always shunted to the bottom of the list
In his keynote, ‘Innovation is a State of Mind’, James O’Loghlin identifies the 3 building blocks of innovation; in this dynamic follow up workshop, participants apply those principles to create and grow their own ideas to improve their business.
This 1 hour to half-day workshop will get delegates identifying opportunities, solving problems and thinking on their feet as they are challenged to unleash their creativity and think up develop new ideas to make their business better.
Delegates will leave armed with the necessary tools to impart real change within their organisations, for years to come.
Takeaways from the session include:
A large number of thought through and practical ideas that the business can implement
The growth of a new culture that fosters innovation and collaboration
Each delegate will have a new found belief in his or her ability to 'think up' ways of doing things better, and know how to grow and use their ideas

INNOVATION IS A STATE OF MIND
No matter how well we are doing things today, if we keep doing them the same in way, in a few years’ time we will have been left behind. The increasingly rapid pace of change can quickly turn today’s cutting edge best practice into tomorrow’s fax machine. To stay relevant and successful, businesses need to innovate. But how do you do it? In eight years hosting ABC TV’s The New Inventors, James O’Loghlin worked with over a thousand innovators who thought outside the box and came up with new and better ways of doing things.
OVERCOMING THE BARRIERS TO INNOVATION

What factors stop us from being innovative, and how can we overcome them?

CREATING AN INNOVATIVE CULTURE
The greatest resource any organisation has is the space between the ears of its people, but many organisations don’t get anywhere near full value from it. What sort of corporate culture does your organisation have? One where everyone just does their job? Or one where everyone keeps trying to do their job better?
It’s more important than ever for organisations to be innovative, but how do you create a corporate culture where everyone knows that part of their job is to think of better ways of doing things, and where new ideas are shared, assessed, trialled and the best ones implemented?
