Innovation management as a practice is the orchestration of ignition: the bringing together of disparate elements, thoughtfully and insightfully, to stoke change. We have invited four innovators to talk about the process of ignition within their field. During the IGNITE panel we will engage in a close dissection of innovation across digital, luxury, new markets, organisational culture, business models, social capital and design.  To attend register here now at maimignite.eventbrite.com.

 

Tyrone Hannick

Head of Digital at Mother

 

In 1997 Tyrone built Masheena, a 3m giant step aerobics instructor driven by pressure pads and microwaves, as his final piece for his Masters in Interactive Media. Through this he stumbled into digital production and interactive media as a project manager/ producer. Designing how someone navigates an interactive experience involves both creating and telling a story, across multiple platforms, and my interest in this area eventually lead him into the world of advertising.
