In 2005 we ran our first ever Ideathon with Childline, the charity that provides a free 24-hour counselling service for children in the UK.
The impact from that pioneering group of leaders is still being felt to this day. The charity went on to transform itself through a merger with the NSPCC as a direct result of the recommendations made by the group of leaders.
Ideathon has now made a real and significant difference with over two hundred charities in the UK and around the world – UNICEF, British Heart Foundation, Comic Relief, Teenage Cancer Trust, Help For Heroes – to name a few.
It has also inspired and built the collaborative confidence of nearly two thousand leaders from more than one hundred organisations.
