An Hour Well Spent: Innovation Isn't Rocket Science

Is this event for me?

For many people and organisations, innovation can be scary or just for people in laboratories or scientists in white coats.
 
If you are of these beliefs, then do not attend.  If, however you want to understand how innovation works, how it can impact on your bottom line then this event is for you
 
Why should I attend?
 
We all have the capacity to be creative.  Many of us simply fail to recognise this. There are many innovation killers ranging from organisation culture to individual attitudes to risk and failure.  By understanding the nature of innovation, it is possible to unlock your own and the creativity of others.
 
If you employ people business, or simply want to develop a more creative thinking mindset, you should attend.
