Think Different I believe everyone is creative. But unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to convince people that they’re creative. No matter how hard you may try, many people believe creativity is something you’re born with – that you either have it or you don’t. Why is this important? Because [...]

  • 🤔 When was the last time you looked outside your industry for innovation? With the amount of disruption that is coming to the marketplace, innovation is no longer trendy, it's about survival.

There are many wonderful examples of this, such as the 2000 Summer Olympics where Team USA showed up in full body suits. Looking outside their industry they researched the bullnose shark and unveiled how it actually moved faster through the water. The result, a technically advanced swimsuit called the LZR Racer, which reduced skin friction drag by 24%! This led to team USA to break 14 records and the IOC banned the swimsuit in future competitions as it was an unfair advantage.

Whether you're looking for ideas in Sales and Marketing, Manufacturing, New Product Design, or saving an old brand look where everyone else isn't... OUTSIDE your industry.
