With the impact of the pandemic meaning, it is likely there will be some continued working from home in one capacity or another, how do you build an innovation culture in the new hybrid world?

Founder and CEO of Vixen Labs, James Poulter is a thought-leader and speaker on Innovation Culture, the Future of Work and Emerging Technologies and speaks on his exact subject in his talk CTL-ALT-DEL.

In this presentation, James Poulter looks at how you can continue to build a culture of innovation and what will need to change for companies to evolve to the new ways of working. Using some real-life examples from his time at Lego, Edelmoan, and Ogilvy, James looks at what new controls (CTL) will need to be in place to allow a return to work. What will need to be altered (ALT) to allow your team to innovate, work together and still maybe work from home with a new work/life balance – and what will need to be deleted (DEL) from previous ways of working.

James also talks about how he has managed to grow his own company (Vixen Labs) from a team of two people, in the space of three years, even during a pandemic to now a team of over 20 staff, and how continues to grow from strength to strength through their own innovation practices.
