Mitch McGuire

Mitch has over 20 years’ experience in the private and public sectors, across a range of roles and involvement in a variety of industries, encompassing corporate environments, local government, small to medium businesses, state government, start-ups, universities and not for profits. Mitch has managed businesses, product and service lines, budgets and crises; and also raised capital and secured grants. He has managed people, boards and shareholders, overseen university partnerships, supplier relationships, intellectual property portfolios, IP infringement actions and court proceedings.

Throughout this journey he’s practiced innovation in all its forms. Whichever situation, Mitch is drawn to experimentation, improvisation, challenging orthodox thinking, testing, learning and changing the way value is created and business gets done. He is passionate about innovation and the role R&D plays in small to medium enterprises, and is particularly vocal about supporting businesses to embrace digital innovation and disruption to stay relevant and grow. Where improving the lives and experiences of customers is the desired outcome his past involvement in innovation execution, implementation and commercialisation (including failures) has led to valuable business lessons he enjoys sharing with clients. Mitch is also a keen student of innovation management thinking, a rapidly changing and evolving field of scholarship across all industries, everywhere.

Together with his own experiences he is always looking for ways in which this emerging knowledge can be relevantly tested and applied to his clients for their benefit. Mitch enjoys sharing his ideas, suggestions and advice whenever a contribution will add value. He is a member of the International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) and the Australian Institute of Management. He is also a named inventor on Australian and several International patent applications.
