Following on from our blog here about unadventurous innovation conferences, we’ve started the process of co-creating an alternative. Rude not to! If there’s enough interest we hope to hold a Union Day event in the Autumn.
Thanks to everyone who added comments to the walls at Spring Union about what we could do if we spent a day together. (Union’s our corporate innovators club that meets quarterly for an evening). Essentially people were asking for an event that’s all about doing rather than listening to expert speeches.
Here are the comments that we particularly liked. If you have any other ideas about how we could innovate the innovation conference format please chip in. And then we’ll do it.
Please let us know if this type of event appeals and we’ll look at an October date. It would be really exciting to create an innovation conference that got large companies co-creating with smaller ones and where we can all learn by doing.
