Moving Ideas Forward

I am Julia Shalet. Product Doctor. I am a successful innovator, product leader, qualitative researcher, project director, lean practitioner, trainer, university tutor & event creator with a ton of experience from a broad range of sectors and organisation types.

I help people from all walks of life focus their time, energy and money where they have the best chance of success – it is my personal anti-waste campaign!

For the past 25 years I have worked in start-ups, with self-employed, small and medium organisations, corporates and the third sector. I have managed high-value product portfolios, brought many successful new propositions to market and saved time, effort and money by ditching propositions that are just not flying.

Are you working on a new idea but not sure it’s worth investing your time, energy and money? Do you need help to get started? Perhaps you are looking for an efficient way to test, validate & refine your ideas?

I have helped hundreds of people evaluate, hone and progress their ideas through interactive workshops, one-to-one mentoring and by carrying out idea development & qualitative research on their behalf. With each interaction I have been able to develop, test and refine my hands-on approach, tools, templates, techniques and tips to address common challenges and avoid common pitfalls. All of these are nestled within an approach I have created called The Really Good Idea Test™.

Here are some of the brands I have worked with
