The public and charity sectors will see continued pressure on funding, increasing demand and personalisation of services. Innovation is arguably less risky than the status quo, yet our ability to find new ways of working is constrained. Intrapreneurship is revolutionising the way many organisations do business and is already a feature of many leading companies. Steve’s talk will consider ways in which mission driven organisations can use intrapreneurship to deliver greater impact and become future proof. Based on his own experience of creating and delivering The Lens, he will argue that we should create an intrapreneurial ecosystem in Scotland, realising the huge talent and capability in our organisations.

Steve McCreadie has 20 years operational and business development experience, a Masters in Leadership and was a finalist in the IoD Director of Year Awards 2015. He has previously led award-winning services and inspired by the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem, subsequently created The Lens: a unique programme which develops intrapreneurship, creating innovation capability and ideas from front line staff. A Fellow of RSA and Leader in Entrepreneurial Scotland Steve works with charities across Scotland and is committed to improving people’s lives. The success of The Lens recently saw Steve being invited to meet the Deputy First Minister of Scotland.
