25th June – Using ‘Lego Serious Play’ to develop your Innovation Strategy

An in-person workshop at Quadrus Business Centre, Boldon Colliery NE35 9PF 3.30pm to 7pm – workshop delivered by RTC North 

At this special event you’ll take a good look at what the next five years might bring, where you’d like to be and how you’re going to get there. It’s not so much about sales forecasts, important though they are, but what you really want your business to look like. What will you be doing, who will your clients be, how will you be operating?

You’ll be using the Lego Serious Play methodology, which is an internationally-renowned facilitated process used by organisations of all sizes to generate innovative ideas for business improvement. We’ve done this ourselves and it’s remarkably effective and more interesting than a spreadsheet!
