McKeon Group Innovation Partner Fergal Brophy on South East Radio



Earlier this week innovation consultant Fergal Brophy, who works closely with McKeon Group, joined Karl Fitzpatrick on South East Radio to talk about the importance of innovation and how “repurposing” a business can create new revenue streams. 



McKeon Group’s new CPD offering, Innovate Together, was developed by the McKeon team and Hereworks, working closely with Fergal Brophy, who is an Entrepreneurial Specialist at UCD Innovation Academy. Fergal also lectures on Innovation Principles & Applications at the Institute of Public Administration (IPA) and is lead facilitator for the Innovation Pillar on Enterprise Ireland’s Go Global 4 Growth programme.


The Innovate Together problem-solving collaborative sessions enable participants to apply key creativity and innovation concepts to real world engineering problems and opportunities. Delivered online or in-person, each CPD offered is tailored to a specific audience and based around key themes, agreed upon in advance. These sessions demonstrate the use of Design Thinking, Lean Startup and Business Model Innovation to frame a specific problem or opportunity and to open participants up to new ways of collaborating to co-create innovative solutions. 


While the Innovate Together session has been certified for CPD points by Engineers Ireland, it is not exclusively for engineers. In fact, as a new approach to problem-solving, Design Thinking is not industry specific. It can be tailored to any organisation, within any sector or industry and there can be different themes.
