Idea Drop’s London Innovation Breakfasts are an innovation-focused series of events bringing together expert keynote speakers and innovation thought leaders to share insight, knowledge and experience on innovation and best practice.
The paradox with innovation is that innovation management processes and systems need to continually evolve and innovative themselves. In our programme of breakfast sessions, our goal is always to identify issues, discuss opportunities and empower every attendee to improve their innovation processes and approach to idea management.
Our innovation breakfasts are delivered with selected partners at exciting locations across London through the year. You’ll be in great company too: senior decision makers and innovation leaders from some of the world’s smartest companies regularly attend including Arriva Trains, Barclays, Metropolitan Police, Virgin, EY, PwC, Hotel Chocolat, Waitrose, Royal Mail, Vodafone, Anglo American, Premier Inn, M&C Saatchi, NatWest Bank and many more.
Stakeholder Engagement and Innovation
People are the greatest asset of every business and many studies have proven that engaged stakeholders promote healthy and sustainable innovation within the organisation. Engaged stakeholders enable the top of the innovation funnel to be continually fed with a broad range of varied and powerful ideas, that can then be qualified, refined and progressed to deliver impact.
In this London Innovation Breakfast, our guest keynote speakers Martin Johnson, CEO and co-founder of Trans2 Perform and Natalie Turner, CEO at The Entheo Network, will be discussing the importance and value of engaged stakeholders as well as methods on how to achieve and improve their engagement. We’ll also be exploring how to innovate the way we engage with our staff and new and fresh approaches to traditional learning and development.

- How to identify challenges and opportunities when engaging your company’s stakeholders
