Time to Poke the Bear – Ep#1 with Duncan Wardle

I’m excited to share my video podcast focusing on helping people think more creatively and act more innovatively. ‘It’s time to poke the bear” is a 15 minutes bite size learnings from creative and interesting people based all over the world.

In this first episode, I had a chat with Duncan Wardle – Former Vice President of Innovation & Creativity at Disney to discuss if there is such a thing as best practice in innovation.

Duncan expounds upon his personal experience working at Disney and the challenges of running an innovation department within such a large organisation.

We talk about how to scale innovation and embed the thinking into the company culture, the best approach to innovation and the three main challenges to innovation faced by organisations today. And you will also find out why the series is called “it’s time to poke the bear”.
