A Year of Innovation: Yohlar's 2023 Achievements

As we bid farewell to 2023, it's time to look back at the milestones that have shaped our journey at Yohlar. This year was one to look back on, filled with exciting achievements and significant creations such as the Innovation Quiz or our exciting Inclusive Innovation Framework.

Launching The Inclusive Innovation Framework

Our latest major achievement was the creation of the Inclusive Innovation Framework.

We've always believed in the power of diversity and inclusion, and this framework is a testament to that belief. It offers a comprehensive guide for businesses seeking to foster an inclusive culture while driving innovation.

What is the Inclusive Innovation Framework?

It's a comprehensive innovative framework created by Yohlar and utilised through workshops to help businesses foster an inclusive culture while driving innovation.

Know Your Score: The Innovation Quiz

Next up, we introduced an online quiz to help you find out your innovation score. This interactive tool has been instrumental in helping businesses identify their strengths and areas for improvement in their innovation journey.

How can I find out my innovation score?

You can find out your innovation score by taking our online quiz. It's a helpful tool to identify your strengths and areas for improvement in your innovation journey.

Partner Workshops & Collaborative Learning

Throughout the year, we facilitated numerous partner workshops, providing a platform for knowledge exchange and collaborative learning. These sessions fostered a sense of community among innovators and helped us gain valuable insights into different industries.

Celebrating Success - Level 6 BMI Course Graduations

One of our proudest moments came while celebrating the graduation of our world-first Level 6 Business Model Innovation Course students - the AHSN NENC.

Their dedication and hard work towards innovation in the health and life sciences sector are truly inspiring, and we can't wait to see where their innovation journeys take them next. If you or your team are seeking further development with a recognised Level 6 qualification in Business Model Innovation, please contact our events co-ordinator here.

Supporting Health & Life Sciences with Rapid Discovery Days

We had the privilege of supporting over 50 health & life science businesses through facilitating our Rapid Discovery days with the AHSN NENC.

These events provided invaluable opportunities for those businesses that attended to fast-track their innovation processes within the health and life science sectors.

What are Rapid Discovery days?

Rapid Discovery days or 'One Day To Innovate' Workshops are events hosted by Yohlar to support growing businesses in fast-tracking their innovation processes.

Igniting Innovation: Virtual Workshops for SMEs

Our Innovation Ignition workshops were a hit among local SMEs. Conducted virtually, these sessions introduced businesses to the world of innovation and provided them with an introductions to the tools, the skills and the mindset they need to thrive in today's competitive landscape.

Collaboration with NHS ICB: A Yohlar-Powered Discovery Day

We were honoured to support the NHS ICB with a Yohlar-powered Discovery day, providing an engaging platform for healthcare professionals to explore innovative solutions to pressing challenges.

Supporting SME Centre of Excellence and SME's within Northumberland

Our commitment to supporting SMEs extended to our working with SME CofE and the new Northumberland Small Business Service Programme for Startup Businesses.

We're excited to continue this partnership into 2024 and beyond.

Inclusion By Default Conference: Leading the Afternoon Workshop

In January 2024, we'll be powering the afternoon workshop at the Inclusion By Default Conference.

We're looking forward to sharing our insights on inclusive innovation and utilising our new Inclusive Innovation Framework to facilitate an exciting workshop filled with important leaders within the North East of England.

Celebrating Innovation with IoCT Event and Awards

Our very own Ammar Mirza had the pleasure of supporting the Celebration of Innovation with the IoCT Event and Awards. It was inspiring to see so many innovative minds come together to celebrate their achievements.

Partnering with ABC Health and Life Science Awards

Last but not least, we were proud partners and sponsors of the annual ABC Health and Life Science Awards. This event was a wonderful opportunity to honour the incredible work being done in the health and life science sectors and wider Asian community of the North East of England.

Looking Ahead

As we step into 2024, we're filled with anticipation for what's to come.

But before we dive into the new year, we'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who's been

part of our journey in 2023.
