Event description



Create the Change in 2019

This innovation and creativity training program covers a broad spectrum of innovation methodologies and provides the tools you need to turn ideas into innovations.

The programme is divided into two one-day courses. Delegates can choose to attend one or both course depending upon their experience and stage in the innovation process.

Who is it for?

Our ideation workshop is not just for entrepreneurs or innovators, it’s to give vets and vet nurses the tools and techniques to create new or nurture existing ideas - they can be ideas for starting a new business, a new product, new content, or even just inventive ways of talking about or marketing an existing product or service.

What will I get from the workshops?

16 January 2019: Course one - Identifying opportunities and generating ideas

In this course Greg Dickens and Guen Bradbury both veterinary surgeons and experts in supporting innovation, lead this innovation course.

They will introduce tools and techniques to help individuals and organisations think creatively and guide participants through the innovation process from identifying need, selecting an idea and developing it into a concrete concept.


Build your skills for opportunity finding, ideation, brainstorming, breakthrough thinking, and idea assessment. Includes creative thinking tools, support materials, and guest speakers.

Focuses on helping participants go beyond "business as usual" and establish a sustainable, culture of innovation with creative skills that can put into immediate effect.

20 February 2019: Course Two - Development and Commercialisation

Part 1: Evaluating and Refining Solutions (AM Session – Day 2)

In part one of this course you will learn how to test your ideas and refine solutions. Guen and Greg will again bring their expertise, but they will also be joined by a series of engaging and experienced speakers with valuable stories about what works well and what can go wrong.

Part 2: Exploiting business opportunities (PM Session- Day 2)

In part two you will start to learn how to develop and refine you’re your business model so that you can maximise the chances of your innovation’s success. Finally we will cover the importance of storytelling in winning support and funding for your idea, focusing on the building blocks of a successful pitch, whether this be to your manager or investors.


The knowledge to verify if the assumptions around your idea are valid. You’ll crystallise your plan to move from having an idea in your head to a real plan to launch a new business, product or service.
