Realisation begins with 


Inspiration Workshop

Companies that recognise the power of AI are building intelligent capabilities into their products, services and operations, deriving competitive advantage.

Large or small, AI will deliver immense value to any organisation. 

The workshop is a complimentary introductory offer.

Combined Intelligence, our strategic partner for UK and Ireland, powers the 'Inspiration Workshop'.

2 hours

A 2-hour interactive and inspirational workshop on Artificial Intelligence and its potential within your organisation.

If you’re already on your journey we’ll seek to understand where you are and will focus on the opportunities and challenges ahead. If you’ve not started yet, we can focus more on the potential and what you need to get going.

Designed to inspire

Achieve transformation at scale overcoming the many challenges and  rapidly changing landscape of available technologies and service offerings.

No matter where you are on your AI journey, we can accelerate your progress.

How it works

Real examples of capabilities delivered by members of our collective

Understanding the AI Journey

Your journey can be broken down into three key phases – build, scale and evolve.


  • If you’re already on your journey we’ll seek to understand where you are and will focus on the opportunities and challenges ahead.

  • If you’ve not started yet, we can focus more on the potential and what you need to get going.

1) Build

Transitioning from identifying the need through to building successful AI use-cases that deliver initial benefit to the organisation.


Recognising the need for artificial intelligence across the organisation.



Setting an incremental vision for AI and the benefits expected to be achieved.


Demonstrating the potential through initial pilots and innovation activities.

Check out the Machine Commons Use Case section.

2) Scale

Making the step from an initial collection of AI use-cases to operating at scale with advanced examples of AI delivering the full range of benefits across the organisation.


Siloed groups within the organisation start, focusing exploration on individual AI use-cases.


A community connects separated groups to start the process of sharing knowledge and experience of AI implementations.


A departmental initiate brings together groups working on AI adoption and looks to share skills, processes and tools.


A departmental governance for AI adoption starts to form and defines initial procedures and best practice.

3) Evolve

Going beyond simple utilization and evolving towards an AI-first and AI-everywhere organisation.


Utilising AI across the organisation, front and back office for all departments.


Thinking AI first when implementing new use-cases, services and products.


Completing the retro fit of AI capabilities across all functions and processes.
