Hi everybody - I will be on for another 60 minutes then I have to sign off - so fire away with any last minute questions and I will do my best!
Hi Safi! Do you have any recommendations for consultants looking to become budding entrepreneurs? Thank you!
Since I'm new to this platform, I'm curious to hear from you. Can you share one trick or maybe odd habit you do that you feel helps your productivity or creativity?
Google & Apple are seen as the leaders in tech innovation in the last 20 years. What do you think will stand out in the next 20?
I'm curious if in the research you did for Loonshots, you noticed any patterns regarding gender, such as women-led vs men-led orgs?
How does one balance innovation and having progressive ideas with respecting their managers/ higher ups and making them feel involved?
Safi, you are smart and amazing! Started reading your book last night. Wish I knew about the book a lot sooner.
I'm pretty liberal and got into an argument last night abt whether govt can be leaders in innovation. What's your opinion on this?
My wife is a high school teacher, and I know she would love to teach Loonshots. Do you have any educational enrichment resources available?
Morning! Glad to be here and answer your questions about life, love, and the pursuit of crazy ideas. Also - Loonshots, innovation, leadership, career, etc. The crazier the better :)
For junior consultant what tips would you give to maximise their career? Also what's the best method to network and find networking events?
What makes someone a good candidate to lead innovation at a consulting firm? Specifically, what are the qualities you would seek in an innovative leader?
Hi Safi, Any tips you can give on rapid experimentation? I’m trying to move my teams away from the point where leaders want copious amounts of data they usually won’t need to make a decision.Thanks!
Fundamental changes require a leap of faith, yours your clients, your company’. How do you close this gap? More practically, how do you fund the development, prototyping, trial?
What role do you see for consulting firms in helping clients build the organizations which enable innovation ?
