Leading take-outs from webinar

Another excellent ‘conversation’ with innovation and start-up guru Phil Morle. For Phil this is an ideal time to innovate and Re-Imagine your products, services business model and start-up a new business. His re-framing perspective is that your customer has more problems now that need to be solved than before! So how can you re-think your customers problems now?

Key insights from Phil:

  • Ask yourself how can you be relevant now?
  • The biggest stumbling block to innovation is habit, the thinking that says the good things we’ve created will always continue -that is until something bad happens. Always assume the state that we’re in now is going to change, always be re-inventing.
  • Phil recommends this Podcast about the Restaurant of the Future
  • Phil also kindly shared his Start-Up tool Kit
