Our Clients


Areas of Focus


Innovation Design

Our clients want to innovate and we can show them how. We design an end-to-end process to facilitate a method of fostering innovation that is appropriate for the organisation we are working with.

innovation process management

At The Blue Globe we help our clients find solutions to their problems by opening them up to our community of problem-solvers. We have many years of experience in the running of inducement challenges and grand prizes – from the ideas phase to the day-to-day management of the process.

OPEN Innovation

We reach out to a community of people to find a solution to a problem through inducement challenges and grand prizes. We set an ambitious goal and set out to find and reward the person who can achieve it.

Awards and Award Ceremonies

Managing the award or grant process all the way from applications, judging and selection to the ceremony itself. At The Blue Globe we place a special emphasis on transparency and adherence to international standards.

community Managment

Managing a huge global community of people who care about our clients' innovation and want to be involved. Someone out there can solve your problem and The Blue Globe can help you find them.

Research for Innovation focus

Working with clients to understand how innovation can best serve their business. We run workshops to understand the business’s needs, and then design a process that will help them achieve their goals.


Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.
