Standalone 'Corporate Innovation' events don't cover the necessary content. Innovation Communities tend to have a commercial agenda. The Innovation Commons solves that problem. 

Under the stewardship of industry leaders and practitioners, we're creating a common space for buyers, entrepreneurs, and advisors to share what works and what doesn't in corporate innovation. 

We're building a common language and process of engagement, designed to foster healthy commercial relationships - free from theatrics.

The Doers

These are your guides to getting it done. These seasoned professionals will be leading sessions over the course of the 3-month programme, running workshops and shaping the content.

The 'Do-ers' - our initial team of advisors and teachers have led strategy and delivery across Finance, FMCG, Technology and Software. They have typically been both buyer, and customer, and understand the nuances of the commercial relationship. 

They are encouraged to be humble, reflective and neutral. There's no commercial agenda to the Commons and Doers have nothing to sell.
