Today's Innovation Conversation is:
Why Change Fails: Introducing the Collusion of Mediocrity
This conversation is all about making change stick - in personal and working life. Why do so many change programmes fail to deliver on their promises? What stops us seeing the revolution through to the end? Drawing on his E-Book, "The Collusion of Mediocrity", session provocateur, Paul Levy will get under the skin of change, innovation, improvement and the art of revolution. For those who have heard Paul speak on this theme before, he'll be throwing in some new curve balls.
What are Innovation Conversations?
Inspiration and new ideas around the cafe table. You may never think or be the same again.
Part of a series of cafe meetups, The Innovation Conversation brings new thinking, new approaches to the way we live and work, in a conversational format.
Evoking the bohemian cafes of the past, the cafe conversation forms the heart of our foray into the world of innovative thinking and practice. Creativity. Change. Improvement. Boundary- challenging and breaking new ground.
The typical format for the Innovation Conversation is:
1. A Short, Provocative talk, offering radical new thoughts and approaches on a given topic or theme, ending with some powerful and challenging questions
2. Round-the-cafe-table reaction and discussion.
3. Drawing out common ground and sharing in follow-up virtual discussion and interaction.
Each session is hosted and kicked off by Paul Levy from CENTRIM, (The Centre for Research in Innovation Management, based at the University of Brighton). These sessions are jointly hosted by CENTRIM and CATS3000. a locally based change management consultancy. No products or services are on offer, though, if you want to find out more about CENTRIM's research, you'll have plenty of opportunity to do so.
So join us, as we step into the zone of discomfort, made a little easier by some fine coffee and croissants.
Sessions are free, though will be a donation pot on the day and a chance to donate online, to help cover costs and contribute towards a good cause. There will be no embarrassment or pressure around donating. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
