Are you interested in growing sales, share, profits, valuations, people, skills, leaders, and the collective capacity of your enterprise to create and deliver value to customers and other stakeholders? If not, why the hell are you in business? Or perhaps you’re interested in a knock-your-socks-off presentation or keynote that will get you thinking differently about your business, how you engage your team, loving and being loved by your customers. Either way, read on…
Innovation creates value! Innovation is the creation of new value, relative to the value invested in the creation process. Might sound easy, but it’s not, as evidenced by the fact that innovation success rates across all industries are sub 10%. Dr Dave’s experience leading innovations includes commercializing the early internet and achieving global competitive leadership in data communications directly resulting in many $ Billions of shareholder value. As a cofounder and lifetime member of the MIT Innovation Lab, he knows the secret sauces and recipes needed to maximize creativity, and successfully take ideas to reality. According to Roger Lacey, Chief Strategy Officer of 3M, Dr Dave’s highly acclaimed book, The Seven Sins of Innovation: A Strategic Model for Entrepreneurship “elevates the thinking on this crucial subject to the highest level”. Dr Dave has successfully helped a wide variety of organizations to innovate – including digital engagement, e-commerce, technology manufacturing, fintech, legal and financial services, healthcare, hospitality, gaming, entertainment, public sector, education technology, and social enterprises. The key to successful innovation is effective convergence of strategy and psyche – and focusing on love, not just money, as the measure of success. All organizations and brands, in all sectors of human enterprise, need customers who love what’s being offered, and staff who love delivering that value experience. It’s really all about relationships.
Brilliant strategies drive success! Dr Dave facilitates creation and implementation of winning strategies for growth, globalization, turnarounds, mergers, acquisitions, exits and more. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt – both as a P&L-responsible leader and as an advisor to hundreds of top leaders. If you don’t have a clear, powerful and engaging purpose, vision and goals – a.k.a. strategy, then WHY do you exist, and WHAT are you trying to achieve? If you don’t know, it’s probably time to pack it in! On the other hand, if you’ve got a great strategy, and it’s just not working, the missing ingredient is the human factor – see below.
Effective psychology and culture fuels growth! When the people working within an enterprise, and other key stakeholders are engaged effectively, growth is almost inevitable (it will happen unless there’s a pathetic lack of strategic thinking). Effective investment in, and engagement of people requires understanding of psychology and culture – individual and team behaviour, attitudes, beliefs, motivation and mindsets. Dr Dave is a PhD and Chartered Psychologist with an impressive track record of improving online and digital engagement, developing leaders and managers, team building, communication and relationships, creativity, cultural transformation, and customer analysis, engagement, influence and experience of value.
