Everything brilliant started with an idea – absolutely everything. I’m fascinated by brilliant ideas and where they came from. How is it that some people seem to have loads of brilliant ideas? Or do we all have brilliant ideas, but most of us simply can’t describe them and get other people excited about them?
I believe that the best thing you can do with your ideas is share them, so this blog gives me the opportunity to capture and share my ideas. I have to credit my inspiration for this to Jesper Lindgren Hejlesen from Denmark who, as I write this, is on idea #227 of his 1000 Ideas project (a1000ideas.com).
I also want to capture brilliant ideas that I see, as well as the science behind how to have and communicate ideas, and most importantly, how we turn ideas into sustainable innovations.
I have founded two businesses, Europe’s first on-line photo processor, fotango.com and TalkFreely (www.talkfreely.com) which helps organisations large and small improve how they innovate by engaging their staff, stakeholders and customers.
