“An idea on its own is just an idea. Shared ideas are different – they accelerate innovation through faster discovery of opportunities!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
My audience with Godiva Chocolates yesterday was for a global team — people from the UK, Europe, Singapore, China, Japan, the Middle East, North and South America – the world! Part of my message was that in the fast changing world of retail, they need to work harder to discover new opportunities — and that this will best come through developing a culture of collaboration!
This is often a key message for many of the global talks that I do. Do this yourself – an idea on its own is not very powerful. Share the idea, and it is something different!
This morning, I hop on a plane to come back home to Toronto from Brussels. A quick but fun trip!
