We’ve produced a series of six podcasts addressing the topic of innovation in the workplace. Perhaps you’re interested in finding out more about using innovation at work? Maybe you’d like to understand how to use innovation to make decisions, collaborate with others and overcome challenges? Our new podcasts will guide you and help you develop skills and self-reflection associated with having an innovative mindset.
They have been developed as part of our ViVet initiative, designed to ensure veterinary professionals are at the centre of innovation in the animal health sector. They can of course be counted towards your CPD targets if they align with your objectives for the year.
The podcasts are hosted by Harvey Wade of Innovate21. Harvey’s work is focused on embedding innovation as opposed to doing innovation which helps organisations deliver consistent and measurable results.
Each podcast will cover a different topic these are described below. Whilst valuable as standalone sessions, each podcast in the series is designed as a counterpart to the others so that listener can achieve a clearer understanding of what it means to have an innovative mindset.
The full series is available below. We hope you enjoy them and find them helpful.
