Executive Breakout, a six-day action-learning programme, by Trinity College Dublin and The Innovation Academy is now open for registration.

Underpinned by three pillars: creative thinking, disruptive innovation and high performance leadership, the Exective Breakout programme will help participants develop a competitive edge in an increasingly demanding marketplace. It is intended to change the way participants think, act and lead, empowering participants to identify and exploit opportunities within their organisation.

A team of academics and practitioners will connect theory to practice during the six-day programme, enabling participants to look at challenges through a new lens. Specialist facilitators and an executive mentoring panel will coach participants who want to influence change within their own organisation. Executive networking events are embedded throughout the programme.

The Innovation Academy is a partnership with QUB and UCD that educates students to recognise the innovation potential of their research and exploit their ideas in a competitive world. The academy applies an integrative approach to curriculum development and combine inter-departmental expertise from business, engineering, research and enterprise to deliver a unique and customised executive programme.

Executive Breakout is designed for mid-senior level professionals who:

  • Want to lead and effect change

  • Want to overcome challenges with new approaches to team-work and problem-solving
  • Want to exploit opportunities for change and influence with new ways of thinking
  • Are committed to investing the time required to ensure maximum impact on their organisation and their own personal development.

Through participation on this programme, participants will:

  • Learn how to influence change and lead multi-disciplinary teams
  • Have the support of an experienced coaching panel of specialists and industry mentors in customising the tools to the needs of participants’ organisations
  • Develop and diversify participants’ professional network with individuals and experts from multiple sectors
