Enterprise

Modern enterprise is about playing a more meaningful role in the world. Future advantage goes to businesses and brands that activate a powerful reason for being — marrying purpose’ with some critical part of people and planet wellbeing …

  • building a work culture around it
  • unleashing people talent for it
  • innovating ideas that deliver it
  • and engaging fans of it

For 20+ years, Matt‘s been at the forefront of this work with industry leaders. He’s known for coalescing the disciplines of enterprise innovation into new, accelerated narratives; transforming how new value is arrived at and the culture, people and brands that deliver it.

Knowing that a rising tide lifts all boats, Matt is democratising his experience to help speed the pace for sustainable change — from those starting out and up to established global corporates — by developing two core products’.

One is a program for People.

The other an approach for Fans.

Ideas can change the world - so get innovating ideas that do.

Turn on your creative human.
Become an ideas person.

Everyone is creative,
anyone can innovate,
you just need to learn how.

Creativity is modern enterprise advantage. Why then do so many get it so wrong?!

The business of creativity is stuck in old-20th-century-ideas; the outsourcing of insight kills the courage of conviction, creative confidence dies in stale brainstorms and de-risking processes make ideas worse. The vision that started with innovating better ideas faster often ends with average ideas, slower!

You can be better.

Your business can do better, faster.

After 20 years of people and ideas innovation, here are some truths:

  • everyone is creative — it’s neuroscience — if you have a brain, you are creative
  • everyone’s creativity is different — winning ideas need different creativity so that’s a good thing
  • everyone can learn to reconnect with their inner creative human — it’s not gone anywhere
  • brainstorms are for collaboration, not origination — there’s way better ways for that
  • old school skills training’ doesn’t solve the problem — being creative is mostly behaviours 
  • innovation is simply the process of creating better ideas and making the best happen 

A Program for People

20+ years of experience captured and codified

98% of 5-year olds are creative geniuses. That number plummets to just 2% in adults.

Matt has codified 20+ years of proven innovation into a unique creative behaviours program to solve the problems of enterprise creativity. He calls it the BIF People Program because it’s about being versus techniques, learning by doing versus classroom training’, towards everyone becoming ideas people who add their much needed value to the innovation of better ideas faster:

What’s an ideas person? It’s any one armed with the facts about their creativity, who having learned to innovate the solving of one problem, can collaborate the solving of any problem

BIF People Program is for individuals, teams and organisations motivated to unleash creative thinking, empower collaboration and get innovating new solutions, value and impact. It’s primarily designed to be taken as Self Study. However, the design also works and has delivered extraordinary results for Client Learning and Development.

Self Study

The combination of the printed manual, online learning and direct contact with Matt makes it possible for everyone — whether solo, with a mate, or in a starting-out/startup team etc — to fully engage with BIF People Self Study and get magical results out of it. The learn-and-do nature makes this a true exchange of value — an exponential return-on-investment (the program fee) as both increased personal creativity and the new-value’ outputs this learn-and-do program produces.

Fans

Understand fan behaviour.
Grow the biggest audience.

Get to the heart of audiences,
put audiences at the heart of innovation,
to start, build and grow fans.

It’s one thing to have a brilliant and stunning new idea, it’s a whole other thing to connect your world-beating-idea in markets that are already full of brands, products, and services that people are currently happy with.

Today’s enterprise challenge, therefore, is not just the idea. It’s also insight. It’s who your idea is for, why will they care, and then how to apply that insight to increase the likelihood of your idea engaging; a heartfelt aligned sense of purpose between you and audience, the delight they feel when engaging and then the holy grail of fan building that is you connecting with the biggest possible audiences.
