What is innovation culture? What do you need to successfully support innovation in your organisation? What is ‘intrapreneurship’, and how can we implement the principles of ‘intrapreneurship’ effectively?
For the third webinar in our Coram Innovation Incubator series we were joined by Frazer Bennett, Chief Innovation Officer, PA Consulting, and Seb Barker, co-founder and COO of Beam, the world’s first crowdfunding platform for homeless people.
Fostering a culture of innovation is a central principle of the Coram Innovation Incubator, and our speakers shared their experiences of developing innovation culture in organisations small and large, the role of innovation in start-up culture, and the steps you can take to develop and expand a culture of innovation in your own organisation.

About the speakers
Frazer Bennett is the Chief Innovation Officer at PA Consulting. He leads PA’s product design and development team globally, spending the last twenty years driving growth in new businesses by melding the physical and the digital – pixels and particles – into connected products and services. He is also the founder of three companies, including two semiconductor companies. During the last decade, his focus has turned to addressing the impact of innovation more widely than the lab bench – considering how the creative mindset, an iterative approach, and a willingness to fail, is a great recipe for success.
Seb Barker is the co-founder and COO of Beam, the world’s first crowdfunding platform for homeless people. At Beam, Seb oversees the organisation’s public sector work and heads up the Mission Support team, which is responsible for helping hundreds of homeless people secure homes and start work in sectors facing skills shortages. Seb has spent a decade working in homelessness services, first at Thames Reach where he worked on the world’s first ever homelessness social impact bond, and later at Turning Point where he supported clients with drug and alcohol issues. He has also designed personalisation services for the NHS, which are now being rolled out across England.
