Testimonials

"Throughout the program Irena unpacked a toolkit of effective methodologies and processes that leaders can use when complex problems need to be solved. One key message for me was that there is a role for everyone when it comes to organisational innovation. Great stuff Dr. Irena, I certainly enjoyed it". Bryan McSweeney, Principal Advisor (Design Capability Development), QLD Dept of Transport and Main Roads.

"I am really glad I attended the Leading For Innovation Workshop. The content was exactly what I needed. In our department, Innovation, has been a hot topic since early 2012 and I found this workshop has really helped me to move some of my thinking about innovation into action, it has demystified innovation and given good ideas about how to create an innovative work place and build an innovative culture in my organisation. I will be recommending this to my colleagues. This was one of the most engaging workshops I have attended. The presentation style was varied and stimulating, to match the content. Excellent!" Terry O'Connor. Regional Director. Disability and Community Services. Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services North Queensland Region.

"Dr. Irena should be on the top of your list if you want to creatively lead your team through change processes". Bronwyn Clee. Director, Bronwyn Clee & Associates. Darwin. NT.

"Irena your workshop was exceptional! I felt motivated and inspired and my dormant creativity seemed to jump to attention. You have an amazing delivery that is inclusive, informative, consultative and challenging". Ana Walker. Dispute Resolution Centre. Cairns

"The tools, techniques, models and systems Irena teaches are simple to use and make business sense. Really worth the time and effort in attending". Connie da Cunha. Manager. TMR.

"The Leading for Innovation Workshop delivered by Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw highlighted to the many managers present that innovation can happen at all levels. It is not exclusively the manager’s responsibility to be the innovator. Rather the manager or Department head can provide the environment for innovation to happen by removing the barriers and clearing the pathways so that team members have the opportunity to innovate and are ABLE to innovate. The workshop highlighted, for me, the importance of managers being the catalysts for innovation." Chief Superintendent Colin May. Director - Regional Operations. Central Region. Queensland Fire & Emergency Services.
