Innovation Consulting

For a new culture of successful innovation in your company

Entrepreneurial growth requires an exacting blend of dynamic innovation process, creative power, and inspirational leadership, especially today as markets are more and more competitive.

However, within the day-to-day of your business activity, small and medium-sized companies often lack time, ideas or resources to implement this and be truly successful and effective.

Inspirational leadership and groundbreaking innovation are where I can help!

Having over 30 years of experience as a successful executive in international corporations, I know what companies in the technical and food industries need to accomplish and remain competitively successful. Being at the forefront of future needs is crucial.

As an innovation consultant, I can support your company's business development growth plans.

My key competencies include

  • Employee resource optimisation (leadership)
  • Proven innovation leadership (innovation)
  • Driving business sustainably (growth)
  • Base business ‘workout’ to ensure it remains relevant and desirable for your customers (sustainability).

My global expertise coupled with my global network ensures you get the best service level to help your company more speedily prosper.

Think of me as your personal and valuable 'business insider'.

Growth

"Stagnation leads to death. Growth is life and change."

Successful companies need constant readiness for change coupled with leadership agility. In addition, innovation and product development form an indispensable backbone to help company growth.

As a partner of the management team, I will positively support and ‘push you’ in

  • identifying and developing new trends, technologies and business growth opportunities
  • developing product ideas that offer your customers real added value
  • optimising costs and added value, e.g. of existing supply chains
  • finding suitable cooperation partners, and finally
  • fully exploiting your employees potential

I am convinced that through experience and learning, solid growth always happens best when a suitable, conducive environment is created.

By inspiring and leading, I can help you drive greater curiosity, teamwork and customer orientation, which will lead to great innovation and higher organisational energy.

Future viability

"Many failing companies are dying right now. Good companies just about get by. Great companies invest today: for the future!"

Let's work together to secure your company's future - with exciting innovation that delivers effective and efficient revenue growth. By jointly unlocking the full potential of your company, you can boost:

  • the attractiveness for your customers
  • productivity - through motivated employees
  • attraction for new employees
  • the value for investors
  • the independence of your company - as the risk of a takeover decrease.

Benefit from competitive advantages and leave the competition behind. Permanently. Full of self-confidence. And: acting instead of reacting.

Innovations

"Our challenge is to give the customer something they want but never knew they were looking for and say they've always wanted when they get it." I see this as an opportunity!

To put it another way, innovations are the key to growth and future viability.

Innovations are essential for the survival of all enterprises, but success is easier said than done.

I help companies with my know-how to create the foundations, process and preconditions to build more effective innovation - and the platforms to significantly increase the readiness for future  change. Ensuring your employees are more collaborative and motivated along with a transparent culture of innovation in your company is the goal.

To achieve this, growth and increased efficiency must work in balance - "more efficiency" alone is not enough to provide a sustainable future

With a readiness to innovate and deliver healthy growth, we make your company fit for tomorrow's markets and customers - today!

About me

Empathetic. Integrity. Inspiring!

Dr. Matthias Heume

Innovation consultant & mentor providing inspirational leadership

My experience:
From practice. For your practice.

I am not your classical management consultant with off-the-shelf concepts and solutions. I am a man of practice and success. Therefore, everything I pass on as a consultant and mentor, I have learned, tested and successfully applied myself for decades—a team player with passion and conviction and an experienced leader of businesses with small to large teams.

I hold a Doctor of Chemistry and have more than 30 years of know-how as an executive in international corporations across food, cosmetics, personal care, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Most recently in a dual role as Managing Director of ADM Research GmbH and Director of European Innovation and Product Development in ADM's vegetable oil business. Success in these companies required strong international and intercultural leadership skills.

My drive. Stepped change business growth through:
Enthusiasm for innovation. And above all: for people.

My mission: to inspire entrepreneurs and their employees, enabling them to realise their full potential ("empowerment"). Inspiring leadership, a sense of purpose and the resulting mobilised energy of employees are the foundations of my work.

The result is innovative companies that are ready for change, generate healthy growth and hold long-term leading positions in their markets.

One of my most extraordinary talents is to promote the growth of people and to unleash their energy. Respect, tolerance and helpfulness, as well as maximum integrity, are my guiding values.

My offer

Industries

My consulting services are mainly aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the food, cosmetics and personal care, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and alternative energy and sustainability sectors. But of course, companies from other industries can also benefit from my know-how - let's find out if we fit together!

Innovation consulting

Successful innovations are the basis for growth and sustainable business success. I help companies understand the fundamentals of innovation and create the conditions for it. In this way, we can remedy and deliver compelling innovation.

Critically, we take a change of perspective and see your business more through the eyes of your customers. With this better understanding of the customer, we develop new products and services that will delight your customers.

With such a fresh perspective, new approaches to solutions and open curiosity, the output will result in greater innovative strength and future viability.

Compelling solutions and viability are how your company becomes your customers' true innovation partner.

Leadership mentoring

The key to being the most outstanding innovative company is directly linked and depends upon its employees. All employees want to live their potential and increasingly uphold and amplify a sense of purpose.

In reality, however, the level of innovation and energy among employees can very often be low. Many employees in companies are dissatisfied, and some have even 'mentally' resigned themselves. The fatal thing about this is that the notorious "work to rule" adversely affects the entire company. However, this can be changed!

And this is where I come in: I can work with you to uncover the unused potential of employees and derive powerful organisational energy for your company from within. With healthy, inspiring leadership, we create an environment in which people develop in the best possible way. And in which they can work with motivation and fulfilment toward a common goal: the sustainable success of your company.
