Throughout the month of September, EO will be highlighting “innovations.” Innovation can be defined in many different ways. We’re looking to feature innovators who have created a new method, idea, product, etc.
Do you consider yourself to be an innovator? Should an entrepreneur aspire to be one?
Are you a radical innovator? Should an entrepreneur aspire to be one? Absolutely, says Henry Hemming, an EO speaker and author of “The Ingenious Mr. Pyke.” In his book, Henry tells the story of Geoffrey Pyke, a journalist who changed the landscape of British pre-school education, earned a fortune on the stock market, wrote a bestseller, and in 1942, convinced Winston Churchill to build an aircraft carrier out of reinforced ice. In this special interview, Henry espouses the benefits of radical innovation and the role it played in the miraculous life of this misunderstood genius.
