Innovation Culture – Moving the Mindset

Leadership Lunch, 12.00pm – 2.00pm, 25 October, Sydney CBD, NSW

Big thanks to our host BGIS.

Invitation only. If this topic is of interest to you, contact

Ever wondered how others are approaching the challenge of changing culture, what the key elements for success are, why it’s important, the impact of change both positive and negative, the before and after, what works well and what could be done differently?

Join us for a unique group discussion as we explore these questions, generate new ideas and share insights. Our host guest speaker is Todd Johnsen, COO at BGIS. Todd will kick off the conversation and share the BGIS approach to creating an innovation mindset.

A few ideas to get you thinking:

  • Make time for innovation – give your workforce space to think
  • See failure as a contribution to success – the 5th idea that was exceptional
  • Champion ideas through an easy pathway – empower your catalysts to find and filter
  • You don’t need to be a genius to innovate – just do what is right and improve a little everyday

And remember “Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” Bill Gates
