Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. Steve Jobs

CHANGE          EXPLORE        CHALLENGE      DISCOVER

The Rippler Effect Innovation Program is a seven session adventure that provides the opportunity to reflect, question, step out, develop, collaborate and network.

The program is an Australian first and will again feature high profile expert guest speakers who will share their business insights.

Over five months, participants will explore and implement practical processes to foster innovation in the workplace. Whether you are an entrepreneur or from a large organisation, you will discover what is necessary to keep moving forward and remain sustainable in an era of constant change.

Our participants have benefited from specialist workshops with entrepreneurs such as James O’Loghlin (ABC’s New Inventors), Lisa Messenger (Editor and Founder Renegade Collective), Roger Langsdon (Marketing Manager at Planet Innovation) and Jennifer Holland (Co-Founder Throatscope and Shark Tank entrepreneur).

What some of our Graduates have said…

“Christina, Thank you for your guidance and provoking during the RIPPLER Course. The exposure to ideas and thought processes was something I appreciated. At first I wondered what I had got into but your books on Mandela and others on Leadership was informative. Chip Conley in Peak challenged me as an owner. Their ideas I am working into what I do. I expected a “how to ” Course with notes etc. after a short while I realised you can not by definition “innovate” by learning. You need to discover what you can do by listening and seeing what others have done. It is not easy and it requires self awareness and honest personal evaluation. That you taught me. I believe Business Leaders need to take time out from doing and spend more time thinking. RIPPLER gave me that opportunity.”

“For me personally it was a good course. It challenged me and opened me up to a different way of thinking and took me out of my comfort zone. It is also good that you can interact with different people with different skills and thinking.”

“The course has inspired me to challenge our conventional practises. It gave me the confidence to stand up and say we need to be more innovative and come up with smart solutions to stay competitive. It taught me to accept and embrace my disruptive thinking.”

“I have already started to implement some of the aspects we have covered during the past few months – in both my professional and personal lives – and believe I have really benefited on a number of levels from The Rippler experience.”

“I expected a “how to ” course with notes etc. After a short while I realised you cannot, by definition “innovate” by learning. You need to discover what you can do by listening and seeing what others have done. It is not easy and it requires self-awareness and honest personal evaluation. I believe Business Leaders need to take time out from doing and spend more time thinking. RIPPLER gave me that opportunity.”

“This is a really valuable course and I can see the changes in myself already. I have been encouraging the team to think about the future and what kind of impact we can make.”

“My mindset has changed because of what I have learned in Rippler.”

“I have a completely new direction but still focused on what I wanted to do.”
