Microsoft BizSpark in association with Forbes.com World Top 10 Technology Incubator The ICEHOUSE, is running the latest in a series of day long, Innovation Academy events.

This event will give you an introduction to the knowledge, tools and contacts that you need to fast-track your start up business.


Successful, high performing businesses have the three components of clear and effective Leadership, smart Strategy and outstanding Execution aligned and working together.  In many businesses the people responsible for all three of these areas are the same person (the owner or owners).

The Innovation Academy day on Monday 20th June will focus on the Leadership component of the Hatchery Programme offered by The ICEHOUSE.

The session will cover the What, When and Why of your business so that the owner(s) can work on the right things in the right order and engage the right resources to help them achieve their goals.

Outcomes and Outputs for the Innovation Academy Attendees:

Every attendee will leave the day with:

1. A clear sense of personal aspirations, goals, and ambitions. 

2. A collective and aligned view of the company goals.

3. A clear and invigorated sense of direction for the company and its shareholders.

4. Documented high-level company goals across all areas of the business that the management team needs to deliver in order for the company to achieve its goals.

5. Documented and tested priorities and measurement and role clarity for the business.

6. A personal Leadership Plan tailored to your business and your role as a leader.

7. An Action Plan for the business, a Communications Plan for the owners, and an Accountability Plan for the reporting and governance functions of the business.
