Conventional Innovation Consultant vs Me

Cartoon: Jeffrey vs conventional consultant

Think about it for a moment. If you want someone to help you and your team devise and realise more innovative ideas, should you look to someone with a business background similar to your own or should you look to someone with a more diverse, international experience? Do you want the status quo or the eccentric? If you appreciate that it takes a real outsider to bring fresh thinking to your organisation, get in touch! If you prefer the status quo, don't worry there are lots of very conventional innovation consultants hungry for your business.
