Why you deserve to become a world-class innovator…
According to the World Economic Forum, there are 10 skills that people will need for 2025.
The Reinvention Club covers five of them:
That means learning to innovate faster and at minimal risk now — is not just a smart skill to have; it’s essential.
It’s YOUR time, YOUR year—and YOUR opportunity to create a *catalytic* change in your business results.
Your future customers are searching desperately for innovative solutions to their new and existing needs and desires. And there has never been a better time to get in on the action and help the people searching desperately for innovative solutions YOU can create.
Maybe you don’t feel like an “innovator”, or you often question your innovation abilities. Mia Culpa!
The Breakthrough Innovator Program was designed to show you how to turn your ideas into paychecks. Breakthrough Innovator shows you how to replace inertia with proven innovation skills. Skills that are easy to learn and powerful to use allowing you to turn that niggling feeling of wanting to innovate successfully - into a reality.
No more sitting around thinking about ‘what ifs’. No more falling back on excuses when opportunities arise. You can create the innovation you want while, at the same time, positively changing your industry and the lives of your customers.
Want to know who makes it in this innovative world?
It’s not the brainiest or tech-savvy innovators. It’s the ones willing to “learn and adapt.” Because they’re committed to finding creative and innovative ways to “build business solutions” or “offerings that lead their industry.”
There’s room for you at the table, fellow innovator. And I’m here to give you a helping hand every step of the way. If you decide to join us, I can assure you that your mindset and results will completely transform together over the next 12 months.
I can’t wait to welcome you to Breakthrough Innovator and cheer you on your way to success.

My clients have come from over 40 industries, several countries and dozens of functions.
The common thread is that clients arrive with the desire to innovate.
With only limited time available, I spend a lot of time ensuring that I am working with the right people.
The program is built to expose you to the right perspectives, skills, and tools that work for your innovation challenges and stages and specific industry challenges.
What is the time commitment, and what if I miss a masterclass?
The Breakthrough Innovator 12-month program is designed to fit into the work schedules of busy professionals. We have designed our online accelerated masterclasses to be 90 to 120 mins in length. Every masterclass is recorded, so you never miss a session.
We’ve found that dedicated clients find the time to do their job while increasing their skills and output. It seems that the busier the clients get working on the right innovation projects the more productive they actually become.
And nearly all our tips and tricks are in easy-to-watch video format that all devices can access. Making it easy to learn when you're on the train, plane, bus or ferry.
What is included in the program?
Platinum Clients additionally receive:
The program is accountability based. Can you share what the accountability or mentoring is like?
People have no shortage of ideas. What they usually lack is the support to help them validate and build them and have the accountability to make sure they get acted on.
Together we set your goals and activities for each month and quarter. We also identify if you’re aiming to high or low and work through any potential obstacles to achieving them.
Each time we catch up, we review your progress and if things aren’t progressing as they should be you can expect a direct, frank conversation challenging you on your progress.
Bottom line is if you’re not achieving your goals through lack of action, you’ll soon change your attitude and effort.
Is the Breakthrough Innovator Program for leaders who already have an idea they want to commercialise, or for leaders who are looking to create ideas, and then commercialise them?
We have clients who have been managing innovation teams for over a decade, but are curious to learn better innovation initiatives in their organisations.
We also have clients who are new to the word of innovation but want to lead a successful innovation project or program within their organisation.
One of our R&D clients experienced:
Many of my clients continue with my elite program offering as they realise that their results have improved so much and they want to increase their results even more.
So for clients who feel they need no more assistance they can still access our high quality innovation mentoring, skill training and tools.
