Innovation Workshops

Simon Banks develops and delivers a number of Innovation Programs, each designed to develop the skills, mindset and confidence to build a culture of innovation where everyone thrives.

With a diverse background in creativity, design and innovation and having delivered over 1300 events across the globe, Simon brings a very unique and creative skillset to innovation (creating change which adds value) and building the natural innovation skills that we are all born with.

Whether you’re looking to:
  • Build a company culture that develops bold and creative ideas,
  • Be human centred and solve wicked problems
  • Design a new product or service at speed or
  • Learn to harness the endless streams of inspiration that already exist internally,

Simon has some great options – both online, in person and a mixture of both.

At the heart of all programs is the innovation framework that Simon talks about in his book A Thousand Little Lightbulbs: How to kickstart a culture of innovation in your Organisation.

Most importantly, it focuses on the behaviours, mindset and bravery needed to build a culture of innovation, and not just a process.

Simon Banks Innovation Framework
The steps are:
  1. Dance with your Ogre: Laugh at the monster that says you’re not creative.
  2. Get your language right. Replace the words “no” and “but” with “yes” and “and”
  3. So, what’s the problem? Innovation starts with a problem, not an idea
  4. Explore your idea. Great stimulation in = great ideas out
  5. Prototype and test it. Get real with your idea and mock it up
  6. Share it/Test it/Pitch it: Get real, share your idea and learn
  7. Repeat. The process of innovation is never-ending
