Alumnus Tom Gray explores innovation, experimentation and design thinking with Ileana Stigliani
For large corporations that want to survive in today's volatile business environment, innovation is key. But what essential qualities do companies need to evolve?
Tom Gray (Weekend Executive MBA 2014) shares his thoughts on why confidence is the new competitive advantage and what failure can bring to business with Ileana Stigliani, Associate Professor of Design & Innovation.
Tom is an innovation and strategy consultant with over 20 years’ experience of bringing applied creativity to blue chip businesses and global brands - helping them to build innovation capability and develop new products, services, propositions and business models. Formerly Director and Head of Idea Development at innovation and growth consultancy Fahrenheit 212, and Strategy Director at creative agency Imagination, Tom completed his MBA at Imperial College Business School in 2015 with a final thesis that focused on the role and value of innovation labs within the creative industry.
Tom takes pride in his association with Imperial and our alumni network.
"The Imperial alumni network has given me a huge number of opportunities in my career. It is great to be able to get back in to touch with faculty, researchers, the School and other alumni. It is great to be able to support alumni and get support back from them," he said.
