This is a presentation based on a recent talk Ben Rennie conducted for the NSW government as a part of LiveWire 2011. The talk focused on Creativity and Innovation with a theme of rethinking how we create and how we run our organisations and companies. This presentation was based on a 30 minute keynote and is best accompanied by discussion however... the 9 lessons on Innovation worth sharing should make sense. Thank you to #livewire2011 and Zach Kitsche from the Wollongong Council.
