“Sparking Innovation”

How to Turn Your Employees Into Problem Solvers

All innovation starts with great ideas. You may be number one now, but if you’re not innovating, your competition is, and they will knock you out of the lead. To stay ahead you need to constantly reinvent and have new ideas ready to go. 

Some of the most important innovations in history were discovered by accident, such as penicillin. But there is a deliberate way to discover innovative ideas, whether it’s a new drug, a new product, new delivery systems, or new ways of doing business. 

These are simple ideas and ways of thinking that will turn your whole staff into problem solvers. It doesn’t take any extra time away from their jobs, but instead is a problem solving mindset that will greatly improve your bottom line and employee morale.

Your attendees will learn:

* How to generate new ideas

* How to think like an innovator

* Where you need to look for radical, game-changing innovation

* How to build an innovation culture into your company

* Where to look outside of your industry for new ideas your competition will never think of

Julie Austin has trained scientists, engineers, and executives from around the world. As an inventor,  patent owner, and international manufacturer, she knows how to instill the innovation mindset that will have your employees generating new ideas quickly. 

Attendees will be excited about innovation, and will come back with hands-on knowledge they can use to solve problems, create new products & services, and learn new ways of doing business that will boost your company’s bottom line.

\”The Street Smart Job Search\”

How to Get a Job, Keep a Job, and Create a Job

(3 hour seminar)

Competition for jobs is stiff. I knew there was a problem when I realized that almost all of my friends and family members were out of a job. I knew I could teach them the secrets that I learned about staying employed for life, no matter how bad the economy was. I\’ve never used a resume to get a job, but have gotten some great, high paying jobs like these without one:

*$600 a night working in a fancy restaurant

*$200 a day reading scripts

*$40 an hour transcribing ads from home

*$100 an hour as a shoe model

None of them were online or on a job board. And I didn\’t have any experience or training for any of them. I got them all using the techniques in my 3 hour seminar. This is NOT a resume/interview seminar. I teach you how to jump to the head of the line without them. Here\’s what your attendees will learn:

*How to get paid to learn on the job

HOW TO KEEP A JOB:

*The one person in the office you need to have on your side (it\’s not who you think)

*Why you need to find your niche and become an expert at it

*How to blend in with the \”herd\” without losing your originality

*The two things that you need to say every day

HOW TO CREATE A JOB:

*How to create an endless stream of income from one idea
