This two day workshop includes everything that is needed to become a world class innovation leader. The workshop includes presentations, working sessions, action learning, and action planning to form an immersive experience. Usually hosted in San Francisco at the heart of Silicon Valley USA, and in London, England, the World Class Innovation Leader program is also occasionally held in other cities or on demand on corporate client campuses.


This program is targeted at corporate leadership teams including boards of directors. However, it is also open to any individual who wants to learn the essentials of becoming a world class innovation leader.


The co-authors of Corporate Innovation in the Fifth Era reveal the lessons to be learned from the most innovative companies including Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft.
