The Innovation Network with Hive Learning
Calling all business innovators across the Bailiwick
It has never been more important — or more critical — to be agile, respond to market conditions quickly, and to problem-solve fast. But innovation isn’t created by going at it alone. It’s created when people share ideas and learn from each other, solving complex, dynamic problems together and working in ever-smarter ways to create value.
A company that knows a bit about this is Hive Learning, the peer learning platform founded by Rugby World Cup-winning coach, Sir Clive Woodward, and the UK’s leading digital venture builder, Blenheim Chalcot.
After helping the England rugby team climb from sixth in the world to World-Cup-winners after building a culture of everyday learning and team working, Clive was excited about the possibilities this approach could hold for businesses.
Blenheim Chalcot, having built more than 40 successful digital businesses, were inspired by Clive’s vision - particularly as an organisation who prided themselves on helping their businesses succeed by enabling knowledge sharing across the group - so each business could go faster by utilising what the others had learnt.
That’s when Hive Learning was born. Today, Hive Learning helps some of the world’s fastest-growing and most forward-thinking organisations drive innovation at scale.
On Friday, 1st May 2020, Hive Learning launched a new digital community for innovators across the Bailiwick of Guernsey
Developed as part of the SMART Guernsey Economic Development Programme, Guernsey’s Innovation Network will give people across the islands practical tools to grow their businesses, and to swap ideas and insights and troubleshoot challenges with their peers — so we can all make progress faster.
“As we have become more sophisticated as a group we have realised that the real power of coming together is from learning from one another and stimulating each other’s growth agendas. We couldn’t do this without Hive Learning.”
Jennifer Ward, Group Talent Director of Halma
