Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooood day folks!

Wouldn’t it be nice to just take a break and get inspired for a change amid all the doom and gloom brought on by the pandemic? I mean, I don’t know about you, but I’m fed up of the C-word. You know the one. I won’t even mention it, unless I absolutely need to for shameless Search Engine Optimization purposes. COVID-19.


Anyway! Let’s focus on something positive for a change, like how one innovation leader by the name of Paul Fletter is helping his organization (Hollister Incorporated) quickly solve challenges, avoid supply chain disruption and extend its market value while also contributing to the healthcare community and global fight against the pandemic by leveraging none other than… the Planbox platform of course! Talk about a win-win-win!

In fact, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say Paul is the Earnest Shackleton of his innovation success story, and if you don’t get the reference, then you should definitely check out Ludwig’s latest article, Batten Down the Hatches and Innovate, in which he states:

Innovators understand that changing market dynamics, customer needs and technological transformation requires them to not only improve and extend their lead in what shapes the essence of their business today, but also to journey into the unknown, imagine different possible futures and discover a different world by seeing around the corners and looking for what lies ahead. Also, COVID-19.

OK, that last bit about COVID was added in by me, but don’t let it distract you from the fact that Paul has pretty much embodied this exemplary leadership, and if you want to learn more about his inspiring innovation success story, then we invite you to join him for a one-of-a-kind strategy session in which you’ll discover:

  • The exemplary role of an innovator during these challenging times 
  • Critical skills innovators can and should apply during the pandemic period
  • Tips for a successful innovation challenge program

You can register for the session here, which will be hosted by our friends over at The Conference Board on June 3, 2020 at 9AM EDT.
