The Future of Work | Intrapreneur | Interview with Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw

The Future of Work – Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw reveals how leaders ignite innovation, break bureaucracy and catalyse change, and how creative and enterprising individuals – Intrapreneurs – are transforming their organisations from the inside out.

ABOUT – DR IRENA YASHIN-SHAW

Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw has been a thought leader and practitioner in the fields of innovation and creativity since before they became the new workplace imperatives.

With a PhD in creative problem-solving and a Masters in Adult Education, Dr. Irena is a rare combination of deep academic knowledge, real-world entrepreneurial experience and a dedicated educator who is on a mission to liberate underutilised talent within our workplaces.

In that capacity she works with leaders in both the public and private sector who want a critical mass of high performing, dedicated, energised employees who can help shape the future of the organisation.

Right now she is spearheading the intrapreneurialism movement in Australia by founding and organising the Australian Intrapreneurs Summit and also in her capacity as founder and editor-in-chief of Intrapreneur Magazine which launched in February 2019.

She is currently a member of the advisory board of Griffith University’s Department of Business Strategy and Innovation. Her most recent books are Leading in the Innovation Age (2016) and Intrapreneur: How leaders ignite innovation, break bureaucracy and catalyse change (2019).
