Welcome to WINN

‘Great things happen when people get together’

Worcestershire is an innovative county and through WINN we want to celebrate and develop this.

We believe that great things happen when people get together, which is why we'd like you to join us. We are developing a community of inspirational individuals and brilliant businesses to help the region grow and become recognised nationally as a hub of innovative ideas and projects.

So, whether you want to connect, collaborate, co-ordinate or just be inspired, WINN should be your first point of call.

It doesn't matter whether you want to be innovative with your products, services or processes, or if you just want to celebrate diversity and entrepreneurship. We can help you to showcase your ideas, learn from other innovators and be inspired.

Read our blog for insights, interviews and ideas as you get involved in the CONVERSATION!

Our next WINN Wednesday

“Genius”

We've all seen the videos of life hacks online - hold a nail with a clothes peg when hammering, use a paperclip to organise your desk cables, or use WD40 to stop your bathroom mirror fogging up.

But what about hacks for your business? How to become more profitable, how to save time and effort, how to grow your business! Join us for our WINN Wednesday 'Genius' for a night of wondering 'That's genius! Why didn't I think of that?'

Why attend?

Introducing our first speaker……

Hendrik Harms
Writer/Director and
Chairman of Harms Way Studios

Hendrik Harms lives in Worcester and is a Writer/Director and owner of award-winning production company Harms Way Studios.

He has recently adapted the Stephen King short story 'All That You Love Will Be Carried Away’ and it has joined his previous project ‘The Music Box’ in doing the film festival circuit. Hendrik has also recently opened Worcester’s first film studio, hoping it will bring more productions to the West Midlands. His next step is founding the Worcester Film Festival to add to the ever growing creative hub in the area.

Jonathan Downes
Owner at Glassfull

Releasing the genie in us - Learning to let yourself out of the lamp!

There are times in our lives when we surprise ourselves and others as to what we are capable of. When we are really connected and focussed, almost unstoppable. Not only do we feel amazing but we can have the greatest impact in serving those around us. How can we experience those moments, more of the time?

Jonathan, owner at Glassfull, is a personal and leadership coach and creator of the Amazing Mental Health model and well being programme. He says, "I'm an engineer at heart, wondering how things work and how they might work better. I love offering practical tools and techniques to help individuals and organisations realise their potential to improve quality of life, productivity and impact on society".

Marianna Canino
Customer Success Manager, Wazoku

Changing the world one Idea at the time

Ideas are the currency of any successful organisation! Idea management enables you to gather, manage, develop, analyse and implement ideas that solve real business problems and identify new opportunities, to achieve both innovation and strategic objectives. Every organisation has an army of potential innovators at its disposal, how can we take advantage of that?

Founded in 2011, Wazoku is an innovative SaaS business. Our passion is to help businesses change the world one idea at a time, with our idea management software. Used by organisations such as Waitrose, HSBC and UK central government to help them embed innovation is a core, strategic, everyday capability. Wazoku are working alongside WINN, currently at the pilot and development stage of their ideas management platform, ahead of its 2020 launch.

Livia Whittall
Owner at Loolas Treasures
