Welcome to the launch of Women Who Innovate! Our inaugural guest is the renowned Vivek Wadhwa, who has been relentless in the pursuit of getting more women involved in innovation. The purpose of this radio show is to provide a platform where the voices of women innovators can be heard. I could not be more honored that Vivek is opening up a subject that I am passionate on – inspiring women to get out of their comfort zones and innovate. A few things about Vivek – in 1999, was named a “leader of tomorrow” by Forbes magazine; in 2012 was named one of six 2012 Outstanding American by Choice” recipients and was recognized by Foreign Policy magazine as a Top 100 Global Thinker. In 2013, was named to Time magazine’s list of the Top 40 Most Influential Minds in Tech. Join us as Vivek shares with us his groundbreaking crowdsourced campaign on gathering innovation stories from women!
So how do you prepare for this new economy? It is high-tech and evolving quickly. It is also low wage for workers and low margin for businesses. The key to success appears to be innovation. But not just technological innovation -- but mind innovation. It’s something I have heard Chris Steely talk about for years now. Chris is a business consultant and trainer. His site is www.bizkickers.com. He explains how to innovate your mind. He also cites some good books.
3:40-6:08 So when we talk about innovation… how do you innovate yourself? … deploy like never done before… innovate how we think… how we deliver a solution… new economy … in this new economy.”
How do you innovate your brain for this new economy?
It’s really the metaphor of sharpening the edge… Stephen Covey… Quantum Warrior by John Kehoe… leaders are readers… Success leaves clues: Jim Rone … getting out in community… what you don’t know … science of programming language of your brain … we are all Einstein to some extent … we all get to heed it.”
I think awareness is the key… Secret cliché… Secret doesn’t talk about taking effective action… systems of leadership … track your business… read… seminars… to get results.”
My take-away from this one: It is not easy out there. This is a new economy. And you need to understand the new economy and then know the rules or if you are innovative enough recreate the rules. That’s informed not inflamed. Catch you next time.

Kirkland, Quebec – There’s a difference between customer service and customer experience. When a customer’s experience exceeds their expectations, they become excited about doing business with you.
We can do things better or we can do things different, but better isn’t good enough anymore. Better keeps you in the game; different gets you ahead of the game. If you can create an innovative customer experience, you will attract more customers. The more customers you can engage, the more stories they will tell. They become your built-in marketing force.
Toni Newman is a five time award-winning business owner and the founder of The Innovation Advantage, where she specializes in helping businesses turn innovative customer experiences into a competitive advantage.
“I’ve spent the last 10 years creating a body of knowledge around innovation and customer experience. That’s where we believe the competitive advantage is today,” says Toni. “You can innovate products, processes, but your competition can copy you five minutes later. The competitive advantage is how you create innovative customer experiences that people will share, talk about and remember, so you can grow your business.”
What do the things we consider innovative have in common? According to Toni, an innovative customer experience is surprising, strategic, seductive, sustainable and simple. These 5’s represent the Innovation Advantage’s core philosophy; it’s not only their formula for success but the means by which you can evaluate if what you’re doing is innovative before you invest capital into it.
“One of the key things I talk about is being outrageously courageous. Dare to be different,” says Toni.

One of the biggest challenges in healthcare is that we are still using practices that are stuck in the 1900s. Ayelet Baron, Futurist and Chief Instigator at Simplifying Work is our guest today and we are going to take a deep dive into the concept of abundance and its impact on healthcare. Think back to the 19th century, where we did not have enough, and lived in a world of scarcity driven by economic depression and war; we had to take from others and had a deficiency mindset. In the 20th century we reshaped management practices based on scarcity where we needed to compete to survive, and now the 21st century, with a mindset of abundance, we discover unique opportunities to create new markets, products and services.
Healthcare is part of the mix because it is scrambling to meet new expectations from the informed consumer. Organizations that make a commitment to thinking from a perspective of abundance will optimize strategies by collaborating across industry walls and including the voice of the healthcare consumer to continuously generate and manage insights. Ayelet will share where the concept of abundance is in play and making an impact. Please join us as we put Ayelet in the innovation hot seat
