Putting innovation in the spotlight - multiple business events throughout September

29 August 2016

Markets don’t stand still, neither should your business.

This September, we’re encouraging businesses to take a step back and assess how well they are innovating. Innovation is about seeing opportunities and grabbing them, or being faced with a problem and finding a way around it. It’s about adapting to remain competitive, and it’s sometimes about taking risks - that pay off.

There are a number of events focusing on innovation taking place this September, come and join us or get in touch to book a session with one of our innovation advisors.
