Hola from Yohlar!
We are an innovation team who enjoy fixing things, or making them better.
What do we really do?
Here at Yohlar, we provide teaching, training and coaching for any individual or organisation looking to develop their innovation skills and mindset.
Through bespoke courses, workshops and webinars we are committed to encouraging, enabling and empowering individuals and organisations to better innovate and realise their potential.
We also love telling stories, here's ours...
Our founder, Ammar Mirza CBE, has always had a deep interest in innovation, whether asking "how might we?" at school to constantly experimenting at home.
Fuelled by being part of significant technological advances including the roll-out of Residential Internet in the mid 1990's, leading on major infrastructure and global transformation projects, Ammar has immense experience to underpin his multi-award-winning expertise.
After 20 years of developing and delivering numerous programs including Accelerator, Scale Up, Investor Readiness and Internationalisation, working with businesses and organisations across all sectors globally, we established that the single biggest contributor to growth and unlocking untapped potential is innovation.
This realisation led to the creation of Yohlar.
Creation of a new combined framework for innovation.
Drawing from Ammar's passion and experience, working in partnership and recruiting other academic and industry experts, we developed a new three-tiered innovation framework: a toolset, skillset, and mindset, which became the backbone of Yohlar.
We call it our Power of 3 Framework.
Developing a world's first Level 6 qualification.
Ammar went onto develop Yohlar's suite of world-first fully accredited Level 6 qualification's including Business Model Innovation.
Providing a global quality standard for innovation and a framework for all innovation practitioners to follow, focusing on creating, capturing and delivering consistent value.

We are an enthusiastic, fun and engaging bunch of innovation experts.
