Principal and Founder.

Innovation Training (Matrix Thinking) was founded in 1999 by Roger La Salle, a qualified Professional Engineer and Business and Marketing Graduate who has been passionate about innovation. Roger is known the world over for his innovation teachings, IP and product development. He has delivered breakthrough outcomes in every imaginable industry including Technology, Research, Banking, Insurance, Polymers chemistry, Food, Packaging, Telecoms, Safety and even Aviation.
A past Chair of Innovation at “The Queens University” in Belfast and former panellist on the ABC television show “The New Inventors” Roger has assembled a deeply experienced team to deliver innovation training, strategy, culture, change management, product development and IP creation.

A team like no others can match.
As Roger says:
* Knowledge is not Wisdom
* Wisdom comes from experience – and no amount of knowledge can match the wisdom
founded on practise and experience.

Yet another of Roger's TED talks;
and what a blast.

It's amazing how a top speaker can entertain, innovate and challenge people's thinking all at the same time!

There is no value in training people in innovation and working with companies on the innovation journey unless we achieve tangible outcomes, or in real terms, improved profits.

Innovation training and culture change is about increasing shareholder value. Unless you achieve that as part of your innovation training endeavours, the effort and the investment has been wasted - the ROI always tells the story.
