About the Presentation 



Intrapreneurs are the people who are the opportunity finders, the change drivers and the innovators who are essential to any organisation wanting to be robust and relevant into the future. They are the ones who translate ideas into outcomes, solve problems in new ways and challenge the status quo to shift business-as-usual practices that limit the effectiveness of their teams and organisation. Intrapreneurialism is emerging as the number one workplace skill for 2020.

In a time when disruption is the new normal, the health sector needs a critical mass of forward-thinking intrapreneurs i.e. INTRAPRENURSES who are committed to innovative patient care. This presentation identifies ways to build intrapreneurial skills.
