“The team at Freeformers have been a critical part of our digital transformation.

We desperately needed to disrupt our approach to learning and Innovation Lab was the catalyst to spark an explosion of disruptive thinking. We have delivered real innovation to our teams – and customers – which we have been able to sustain through adopting the agile principles we learned. The team are no longer afraid of digital and nine months on they think and talk differently. Most importantly they are approaching everything they do with a disruptive mindset focused on making it better for the client and have the tools to make it happen. Awesome.“

Why do you need this?

A new breed of startups have been busy rewriting the innovation rulebook for the digital age. There has been an explosion of disruption across all sectors as the little guy takes on the incumbent at their own game. But more and more companies have the hidden capabilities and ideas to innovate from within – they just might not realise where they can come from. More often than not, great ideas come from collaboration and interaction rather than thinking in silos. That’s why we’ve created the Innovation Lab.

After attending this session, you’ll be able to put your ideas into practice faster. And by grounding ideas for your business in digital, you can future-proof and think ahead to new generations of customers and employees. Best of all, you can activate your people to play a part. You’ll leave with a new confidence to react faster, develop thoughts more deeply, and get digital ideas off the ground without delay.

The Freeforming doesn’t end in the workshop. We’ll keep you up to date with the latest digital developments – and for every business person we train, we train a young person for free. So your place will fuel the digital ambition of an aspiring young person.
