Innovate or agonize ?

It's your choice...

This is Philippe Boulanger’s flagship keynote and a good place to start if your wondering why your ‘best practices’ aren’t working anymore.

Filled with thought provoking content understandable by any audience, this keynote delivers powerful, interactive experiments, which raise awareness of the cognitive mechanisms and biases that block or unleash innovation, agility and velocity within companies.

An experiential show, this keynote will make you forever…and is an introduction to Philippe’s book coming later this year!

This is Philippe’s most requested keynote by well established companies and the gateway to innovative mindset.

Impact: Rediscover and unleash the innovation potential of your teams

Typical Content

  • An introduction to the rapid acceleration of change delivered through storytelling about the human impact.

Key message: “The speed of change you see today is the slowest speed of change you will see for the rest of your life”

  • What makes a company successful at innovating?

Key message: “A well structured company has a culture of innovation, creating the space and ideal conditions for innovative mindset to take root and grow”

  • Our brain is driving us to limit our risks, working against our quest to expand our possibilities

Key message: “We need to understand how to manage the connection between cognitive biases and innovation”

  • While still cloaked in mystery to some, Innovation is actually a proven and relatively simple process where experimentation is key

Key message: “Innovation is a riskless deterministic and repeatable process. The biggest risk is not innovating”

  • Variety of talents is necessary from innovation to operations

Key message: “An excellent innovator has hard time in operations, an excellent operator has hard time in innovation”

Entertaining, interactive and often amusing experiments are used to powerfully illustrate these key messages and are the hallmark of Philippe’s keynotes.

No spoiler here, the experiments have significantly greater value when they are not known upfront.

Keynote format: 30 minutes to 90 minutes
