Your trusted companion for
your 2021 innovation journey

‘Caught in a global pandemic and economic storm, innovation may look like a blue-sky indulgence. But what if survival and recovery are only possible through re-invention? It’s an unsettling thought but hang on to it – this is the new reality’.
 
Those words appear in the Foreword to our new book: ‘Innovation in a Climate of Fear’. They spell out a very basic truth. In our ‘new normal’, where disruption and change are the only status quo, we are left with one brutal, binary choice. Do we seize the initiative or suffer the consequences?
 
Whether you are a confident innovation champion or a slightly risk-averse sceptic, we are here to help you in 2021. In a year of unprecedented change and challenge, Clustre will be your trusted companion throughout your innovation journey.

Our 'Innovation of the Year Award'...
The ‘Innovation of the Year’ award is our way of recognising and rewarding the achievements of leading innovators. Six top contenders – including Fluxx Consulting, AltViz, Filament AI, Wazoku and Skillsoft – were all shortlisted for the 2020 inaugural award. But the final stand-out winner was Zuhlke for their critical work with DHSC during this Covid crisis.
