Next Meetup

A evening with Leslie Barry and special guests
LESLIE BARRY, Former Head of Innovation, Sports Bet Founder and CEO of Exponential Innovation "Hacking your Innovation Pipeline like Google." ( Getting results from your Innovation Investment ) Innovation is firmly on the leadership agenda and we’ve evolved many models to attempt to generate ROII. Why is this so hard and how can we fix it? How can we create an entrepreneurial mindset in our people, while protecting our existing business, and discovering new solutions to new problems that delight our customers to find the ’next big thing’? The surprisingly simple answer is to focus your innovation investment on the right products and ideas by asking ‘Should we build it?” vs “can we build it?”. Learn why Apex Innovators like GAFA (Google, Apple Facebook, Amazon) run hundreds of experiments continuously to discover and launch new products that customers love. We’ll explore examples from RACV, RACQ, Sportsbet, Newscorp and others. ABOUT LESLIE Leslie leads Exponential Innovation, working with corporate innovators to deliver innovation results through rapid experimentation and exponential technologies. Leslie has built four startups, sold two and worked with over 2000 founders across 32 countries. He’s worked as Head of Innovation with both ThoughtWorks and Sportsbet, and advised and mentored in numerous startup accelerators in the Asia Pacific region. Also Board Advisor to Phoria, a startup focused on immersive digital experiences. Mentored at TechStars, Slingshot and Melbourne University Accelerator program. --- SAEED KHAN Full details to be announced Monday 24 September!
