    Thousands of messages about innovation
    Tens of thousands of meetings
    Millions of people in audiences
    Thousands of definitions of innovation & creativity
    Millions of confused people
  • Definition of Innovate
  • Solutionman’s Definitions
    Innovation: transforming creative ideas into valuable or profitable solutions
    Creativity: developing new or interesting ideas
    “Innovation
    is how meetings
    make money
    or
    generate ROI”
  • What should be the goal for ALL meetings, events conferences, and experiences?
    to facilitate innovation:
    transform creative meeting ideas into valuable or profitable solutions
  • Formulate-to-Innovate
  • #1 – Lack of Time
    #3 – Brain Patterns
    What inhibits or blocks your ability to be creative or innovative?
    #2 – Lack of Tools
  • Meeting ROI (Return On Ideas)
    Three Variables:
    Number of Participants
    Number of Ideas Generated
    Value of Ideas Implemented ($$$)
    One Simple Formula:
    __ # Participants X __ Value of Implemented Ideas =__ ROI
    Three Strategies:
    Ensure every participant implements at least 1 valuable idea ($100, $1,000, $10,000, $100,000 or $1,000,000)
    Design every meeting so it pays for itself
    Track results to show value of the implemented ideas
