By Dave Veale
Manu is a fascinating, energetic speaker and thinker who works with executive teams in Fortune 500 companies, lectures around the world on innovation, teaches “Innovation, Foresight and Business Design” at the Rotman School of Management, is a Professor at the OCAD University in Toronto and – what’s great for New Brunswick – is that he’s a regular visiting lecturer at the Wallace McCain Institute for Entrepreneurship.
Manu believes that the exploration of possibility requires imagination as a prerequisite for strategic change and innovation.
Author of Disruptive Business: Desire, Innovation and the Re-Design of Business, Everything 2.0: Redesign your Business Through Foresight and Brand Innovation and many more titles, Manu’s most recent book, Behaviour Space: Play, Pleasure and Discovery as a Model for Business Value will be released by Gower Publishing in September 2012.
