“EDII provided a learning programme for a 100-strong cohort of innovators across JLL. We chose EDII because we’ve seen how well they equip their other clients to think and act innovatively.


The approach by Caroline Bedford and the EDII team was hugely consultative. We greatly benefited from their experience both in innovation and personal development.  EDII enabled and empowered us to customise the training programme. We really got the feeling that they were on our side, and rooting for us when planning the content. In fact, EDII worked with us so closely to understand our business it felt as if the training was delivered by JLL  This helped us land the initiative much more effectively 


EDII’s training on human-centred design thinking has transformed the way our innovators approach problems. In addition, their productivity training has also helped our innovators give back time to colleagues – a key initiative in JLL. Delegates loved the interactive EDII training experience, particularly the collaborative sessions using digital tools such as Mural.


We’ve noticed how delegates on EDII training modules gain confidence to actively contribute to projects and enthusiastically collaborate with colleagues. After every EDII training session, we definitely see a spike in productivity and engagement with the programme.


I would definitely recommend EDII for training in design thinking and innovation.”
