“Dr. Irena did her intrapreneurialism mentoring program with our high-potentials. She guided participants step-by-step. It’s not just a skill or behaviour that they learn but also a process. The outcomes for the business were fantastic. We had projects ranging from launching an app to help our sales teams be more effective, to improving efficiencies and reducing costs in many of our processes and simple things like enhancing team culture and productivity. The estimated value of the work delivered by the participants was calculated to be over $1,000,000.”

Thank you for a great Creating Intrapreneurs in the Public Sector program. It gave me back self-belief and confidence that I do have good ideas. I was almost at a point of giving up and becoming the type of public servant that people always joke about – but I now have an enthusiasm and focus that I haven’t had in a while. Thank you.

Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw assisted us to develop our leaders and sustain a culture of innovation in QCT. Her work is exceptional. She is an engaging facilitator with deep understanding of leadership and innovation and how to create an environment for innovation to thrive. There were immediate benefits for us such as enhanced communication and relationships across the organisation with much greater willingness of staff to contribute ideas and participate in making change happen; thinking differently about the challenges facing us; and increased confidence in developing innovative solutions. Participants enjoyed her warm personality and willingness to ensure individual needs were met.

Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw was the keynote speaker for our North Queensland Region Technical forum themed Unleashing Potential. She was the ideal person to create the right tone for the delegates and to warm them up for the two-day program. Her powerful and highly effective delivery style was one of the event highlights. She captivated us all with her presence by inviting audience engagement in a highly participative and interactive learning journey which equipped our leaders with the skills to create more innovative, high performing workplaces. Dr. Irena will help unleash the hidden potential of your employees.

Membership of the GII is a smart way to formalise and recognise the hard work we have done as intrapreneur practitioners over the years. It is also a much needed creative and challenging space to grow new ideas, seek out experienced advice and fall into life-changing conversations and connections. A community is only as good as its contributors and the Institute has been founded by luminaries in the field. The masterclasses and support are world-class and we are building a powerful coalition for organisational disruption and change.

My experience as a member of the Global Intrapreneurs Institute has been insightful. The GII provides a new and thought-provoking look into getting the best out of people by unleashing their intrapreneurial skills. It lays out the blueprint of how to unleash an intrapreneurial mindset and how organizations can leverage the same to find and exploit change and innovation opportunities.

As a Foundation Member of the Global Intrapreneurs Institute I’ve been delighted with the value it has represented right out of the gate. Although this is a brand-new initiative, the recognition, networking and new associations with like-minded people have been excellent! Even more, the monthly online “Masterclass” is second to none. I’ve enrolled for many webinars over the years, but nothing comes close to the value I have gained from these Masterclasses. The quality of speakers, along with the interactivity, and networking makes them well and truly great value.”

I am so glad to be a member of the Global Intrapreneurs Institute(GII). My PhD research was about Intrapreneurial behaviour and the organisational conditions that inspire and evoke the intrapreneurial talents of employees.

Becoming a member of GII has been a fantastic opportunity for me to network with other intrapreneurs and intrapreneurial organisations. I have appreciated the opportunity to work with wonderful people like Dr Irena who has the passion to inspire current and future intrapreneurs while also helping organisations to capitalise on the under-utilised intrapreneurial talents of their people.

Members of GII are also privileged to have access to a wide range of resources such as recordings of their world-class Masterclass sessions, eBooks and interviews to gain powerful insights from people who are leading the intrapreneurial movement across the globe.

I`m so proud to be a member of the Global Intrapreneurs Institute. Besides the new approach they gave me, I also feel more accompanied in the ‘adventure’ of innovation. My work in higher education is focussed on nurturing entrepreneurs but I am an INTRAPRENEUR so it is wonderful to associate with the other intrapreneurs in the institute who are all also committed to creating value in their own way.

The Global Intrapreneurs Institute is where changemakers can connect as we each need to navigate ways of overcoming mainstream BAU mindsets; we need to build our own ‘community of practice’. That’s what GII is for me – a movement of intrapreneurs enabling progress through action!

If you are looking for a ‘tribe’ that gets you, then I’d encourage you to join the Global Intrapreneurs Institute. I am usually cautious about where I direct my time and resources and have been impressed by the engaging and relevant support GII extends to its members. As my career has been deliberately a diverse mix of experiences underpinned by a strong personal purpose, it’s refreshing and actually comforting to be around people who value me for being different, thinking different and wanting to make a difference.
