Market Vision as a Key to Success
The highlight of the Deloitte Intangible Value Summit 2023 was a presentation by Dr Larry Marshall on Invention to Innovation and how he learned from failure. His recent book charts a course for scientists, leaders, investors and policy makers to translate research into growing innovative, competitive companies and industries.   It demonstrates how science can generate new value that grows markets and creates jobs while also delivering social, environmental and economic benefits. https://www.publish.csiro.au/book/8077/

A perfect gift for Idea Spies- positive people with positive ideas
I saw this book in the Laugh and Learn toy shop in Randwick Sydney last week and love it. The book perfectly describes my feelings in developing IdeaSpies. "What do you do with an idea? Especially when it’s different or daring or just a little wild. This is a story for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult”. The message is clear-welcome and nurture ideas with patience and persistence, no matter how big or small, no matter how unique or popular, and they may grow to change the world.

The Power of Positive Ideas
Democratic societies thrive when citizens actively and critically engage with new ideas, developments and claims to truth. Not only can such practices result in more effective choices, they can also lead to widespread support for social justice. With Western societies in the midst of environmental, social and political crises, it is more important than ever that citizens become ‘ideas-informed’.Positive ideas that could improve our lives are needed to fuel an ideas-informed society. However, positive ideas often fail to get our attention because negative news is a major problem in today’s world. SEE CHAPTER 16 How to get the (Positive) Word out with IdeaSpies30% discount on the ebook with the EMERALD30 codehttps://www.ebooks.com/en-gb/book/210833661/the-ideas-informe

Governance

A society where all individual interests are seen to be seriously considered
Democratic Governance should be about seeking policy balance that benefits the whole community. It is where loyalty to all citizens overrides loyalty to factional interests.Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times, has published a new book, “The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism”. I recommend that any citizen interested in reversing the decline of our liberal democracies and creating a better society read this book.   All citizens should better engage with our country's governance and, along with our journalists and commentators, demand that our politicians support individual policies with clear evidence of wide community dialogue and majority support.
