The Corporate Innovator is a podcast that gives you direct access to visionary leaders, makers and advisors to answer the burning questions in today's corporate world. How do large organisations adapt to compete with and even out-manoeuvre new market entrants? How do you foster a deeply embedded culture of innovation? How do you juggle the board, management layers and shareholders whilst creating a new product that customers actually want? We go straight to the source across a range of industries, from private tech to government, venture capital and beyond to hear how to create systematic growth and make a real impact. Hosted by renowned innovation leader John Chambers, ex-Telstra product and innovation executive and current Managing Partner at digital innovation company IE, we speak candidly with those at the top to see what it takes to make the right first step and continuously innovate to avoid disruption and find new growth paths.

The Corporate Innovator

In this episode of The Corporate Innovator, we chat with Pat McCafferty, Managing Director of Yarra Valley Water. Pat has been in water all his life, and is the epitome of what we call an 'ambidextrous' executive. This is a story about creating a culture that cultivates space for ideas (even the ones that fail), one that has positioned Yarra Valley Water as a global leader in utilities and government agencies.

In this episode we’ll unpack:
How to create a ‘self actualising culture’ like Yarra Valley Water did over a 20 year journey
How government agencies can become innovation leaders by utilising citizens, drawing from global models and aligning with government policy
How to create an integrated P&L that includes both social and climate capital to drive sustainable, long-term value for both shareholders and society at large
