Is Your Company Leader or Follower?

Apple has changed the world with its ground breaking Innovations such as: AirTags, AirPods, Apple Watch, Siri, iPhone, Ipod.

And it is not by chance, it is the culture that created, shaped by its leadership - with the well-known Steve Job saying

''Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower''

So Question to You as Manager, Leaders, Executive, and Team member,:

''Is Your Organisation a Leader or a Follower''?


'How are you going to cultivate & increase Innovation for your organisation?'
