The Innovation Network calendar of events addresses three key strands:
- Innovations in the external business environment that could significantly impact ways of working.
- Advances in technologies and practices in high-tech manufacturing (often stories from our own members).
- Leadership skills for technologists and scientists operating at strategic level in B2B manufacturing or professional services firms.
Speakers are deeply experienced in their topic, and often come from within the membership. Events are designed to allow valuable time for group dialogue which helps attendees process new thinking and apply it in their own organisation. Networking is gently facilitated, so that connections between the rich mix of technologists and leaders typically present are made easily and are hugely enjoyable.
