Ideas are a dime a dozen - it's the people who can execute on them that really make things fly. Business psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a professor at University College London and a visiting professor at New York University, has made a career out of studying this kind of thing, and on a visit to New Zealand this week, took some time out to chat to Idealog about what makes a true innovator and how organisations - including government - can foster creativity.

As you can see, Moustachio Co. founder Rab Heath (you may recall his name from a previous venture featured in Idealog, Boxedthrough) walks the talk.
