Challenging Assumptions - A Practical Guide to Innovation

I want to talk a little bit about Marvin Pipkin and what he can show us about challenging assumptions. When the United States Army Scientist returned to civilian life and joined General Electric in the 1920’s - he was set the “impossible” task of creating a lightbulb that was frosted on the inside.

Lessons for leaders

By Tony WuAbout four years ago, I decided I was over working in the corporate field, and wanted to do more with my career. Keen to utilise my studies and pursue a career in marketing, I started applying for hundreds of roles, and attending interview after interview, only to be told my CV wasn’t what they were looking for.
