Personal and business benefits

Our online innovation course is tailored to the specific needs of the individual throughout, to create a highly targeted, bespoke learning experience.

In week one, you will identify a key commercial goal or challenge that you aim to achieve for the business. Examples include: increased sales; customer experience; develop / launch new products or services; develop team culture; improve operating efficiency. 

You will work to achieve your target outcome through the programme, supported by one-to-one support from Dr. Jo North, an innovation and business growth expert. The learning from the programme is applied to this goal or challenge, so that you will actively use the course materials to benefit you and your business.

You will also receive an individual Foursight TM profile that identifies your personal innovation and creative problem style preferences and learn how to leverage your preferences for more productive outcomes.

Because the time commitment required is less than 30 minutes per week, at a time and place to suit you, the programme has the benefit of providing a flexible and personalised development experience that does not require significant chunks of time away from the business. 



Just some testimonials...

"I completed Idea Time with Dr Jo, I found it enlightening and enjoyable, Idea Time helped me to achieve my BHAG, with surprisingly little effort. I found the techniques very effective, and certainly I am a better equipped manager, with simple tools and tricks in my pocket through Idea Time. I looked forward to my one on one discussions with Jo and always finished these highly motivated. Idea Time has re-awoken a desire in me to lean and undertake further personal development, I highly recommend Idea Time and have encouraged Team members who are now chasing their own BHAGs through Idea Time."
