Topic: “Innovation with Legs”

 How to use Innovation for day to day success…..no matter what your role may be.

Rethinking how we operate day to day is a crucial step in maintaining our success at our respective organisations. Innovative thinking not only allows us to rethink our day to day operations but it also provides us with practical solutions to our knowledge management challenges and offers fresh improvements that can increase our impact and effectiveness. 

Whilst many people may believe that innovation may not be applicable to their individual roles, the reality is innovation is becoming an essential business skill in hundreds of industries and professions around the world, including the world of knowledge management. In this keynote you’ll come away with some practical, replicable and effective innovation tools and processes that you can apply immediately to improve your outputs. 

Anyone can become a world class innovator and this workshop will help to show you how. 



About the Speaker: Nils Vesk

Nils Vesk is a professional designer but you won’t find him designing your office or company website. Nils Vesk is a designer turned Innovation Architect. Nils is the lead Innovation Architect and founder of the consultancy – Innovation Blueprint. Nils is an entrepreneurial design thinker who loves nothing more than taking a great idea from conception to completion. 

A self confessed innovation junkie, Nils spots innovation successes from around the globe, deconstructs them and then couples them with his latest innovation strategies to accelerate the growth of organisations and increase their success. He’s strategic but stops at number crunching, he’s mentored some of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs yet stopped at becoming a venture capitalist and his fast thinking is in higher demand than instant noodles. 

For the last 18 years Nils has been applying design thinking to the business of generating and realising ideas. His clients include the worlds fastest growing companies who use Nils as an ‘Innovation Architect’ for accelerating business growth through innovation. 

Nils’ innovation and thought leadership programs have seen him deliver programs for some of the most prestigious organisations in the world and Australia. Some of his clients have included Caltex, CBA,  Microsoft, IBM, the Queensland Government, Nokia, Vic Roads, Bluescope Steel and Optus to name just a few.

Nils is the author of ‘Ideas with Legs: how to generate and realise ideas’ (2011), Life’s little toolbox: tips for a happier healthier you (2003) and co-author of ‘Ideas: original perspectives on life and business from leading thinkers’ (2006)

When not travelling the world delivering keynotes, workshops, researching or creating innovation plans for organisations, Nils is usually found in his hang-glider soaring in the air.


So come along and spend some time with like-minded knowledge professionals to listen, participate, collaborate and learn.  We look forward to seeing you there and at networking drinks following.
