Future Proof Me - What Great Ideas Need

This week’s Future Proof mini episode is all about what it takes to get a big idea signed off. 


We’re excited to share very wise advice from senior Microsoft exec, Mitra Azizirad, who heads up their AI and Innovation division. Mitra speaks about what you should do when that fantastic idea or innovation you have gets knocked back.  (Hands up who knows that feeling!) 


Mitra is someone who’s had plenty of practise selling-in new ideas and approaches, and one of her top pieces of advice from our conversation was all about how you should react to being told “no” when you pitch an idea in a big corporate.  


It’s important advice and we’re excited to revisit this with you here. Enjoy!
