Masterclass 1 – Developing an Innovation Mindset

28 October 2020, Wednesday
9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Gympie Region Innovation & Investment Program (GRIiP) Masterclass 1 – Developing an Innovation Mindset

Presented by Colin Graham

Innovation starts inside your head. It is a way of thinking that drives your behaviours and actions. Innovation success is not dependent on how much money you invest, instead it is much more related to your thinking and actions.

Masterclass Details

This practical workshop is aimed at small business owners and managers – although also relevant to many others – and will help you to understand how to develop an innovation mindset and how this can boost your business.

Masterclass Content includes:

  • Introducing innovation – opportunities and benefits for small businesses.
  • How innovative are we currently?
  • The elements of an innovation mindset.
  • The Innovators DNA – how to cultivate it.
  • Different types of innovation – not just new products.
  • Developing new ways of working to integrate innovation into your business.
  • Challenges and opportunities presented by Covid-19.

Course commences on 28 October 2020. All masterclass sessions will take place in person at The Generator Gympie, Floor Level, 232 Mary Street, Gympie, 4570.
