Innovation Days

Bringing innovative thinking to social challenges

We believe that innovative thinking can help deliver effective solutions to important challenges such as reducing gang violence, improving the lives of survivors of major incidents or cutting down plastic in our waterways.

Our goal is to create an environment where great minds can come together to discuss fresh ideas and deliver effective outcomes.

It works by mixing people with a wide range of skills together with policy experts, then giving them the time, space and tools to explore new options.

We encourage design thinking to consider issues and subjects from non-traditional perspectives. Stakeholders and subject matter experts are on hand to support participants and challenge orthodoxies.

After the event attendees are free to build on their contacts and develop their ideas after the event.

Who should join and why?

It’s a forum for helping citizens and entrepreneurs alike.

  1. We encourage participation from all walks of life. The more varied the teams, the better
  2. You can make a contribution and make a difference to an important issue
  3. You’ll work with policy experts, stakeholders and other experts to gain valuable insights and contacts
  4. You’ll be developing innovative ideas in a receptive forum and have the chance to develop them further through your skills and new-found network

Who runs the innovation days?

We’ve tapped into a group of business coaches, mentors, designers and writers. With over 80 years experience between us we know our strategic, planning and operational onions. We’ve worked in sectors ranging from travel, health, lifestyle, recruitment, government, mass retailing, automotive and finance and believe that entrepreneurs should be invited to bring their startup energy and zeal to bear on public sector challenges.

What happened on the last innovation day we ran?

The previous innovation day asked: “How can we support witnesses to better prepare themselves when attending court?”

Three teams worked through the problem by delving into research and questioning experts from Ministry of Justice, Supporting Justice, HM Courts & Tribunals Service.

Catherine Hinwood, Deputy Director in Victim and Witness Policy at Ministry of Justice, described the day as “a really innovative piece of work that I am extremely supportive of.”
