MADE Cymru students welcome global innovator Bruno Pešec to their class


Students studying on MADE Cymru’s Innovation Management course, are looking forward to welcoming Bruno Pešec back to their class this week. He was a guest speaker last week and delivered a superb session called “Doing Innovation with Bruno Pešec” – this week’s lecture is a follow-on called “Managing Innovation with Bruno Pešec.”

Bruno Pešec helps business leaders innovate profitably. He is one of the rare innovators who can claim that he has worked on a regulation-defying freight train and an award-winning board game for teaching entrepreneurship and innovation.

With ten years of experience in different industries—including defence, manufacturing, education, entertainment, and financial services—he has delivered projects that had positive impact on GDP of several countries, succeeded and failed inventing and innovating, and overcame a number of problems and challenges with no obvious solutions.

In addition to his corporate experience with brands like DNV, DNB, and Kongsberg Group, Bruno is deeply involved with the global entrepreneurial community. He co-founded Norwegian Lean Startup Circle, Norway’s largest Lean Startup community, and Founder Institute Norway, the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program. He often serves as a mentor and judge at various accelerators, incubators, and events across the globe.

His academic credentials include a master’s degree with distinction in industrial engineering and management, specialisation in production and quality engineering, and advanced management diploma with specialisation in strategy and innovation. He has also been trained by Toyota in corporate value creation and innovation. Bruno is currently undertaking a doctorate in organisational change, with a peculiar focus on the issues with innovation in large enterprises.

MADE Cymru lecturer Shaun Kilbane says, “I think I am just as excited as the students in welcoming Bruno to our classes. His credentials in both innovation and entrepreneurship are uniquely impressive. Innovation doesn’t belong to one job role or sector and Bruno’s experiences prove this. I’m hoping that the students will be inspired. I know I will be.”

Bruno is one of many international guest lecturers who teach on the Innovation Management program. 

MADE Cymru is busy enrolling new students to the course for a February 4th start. The classes are online, flexible and designed to make an impact on industry in Wales.
