Innovation leaders


Meet our innovation leaders

This book wouldn’t exist without these inspiring people. They generously shared their wisdom with us, taking us inside their thinking on innovation. From a diverse range of industries, they’re at different stages in their careers and life. But they all have one thing in common: they know how to get new ideas across the line.
