Event description

Description

Final Friday Science: An initiative to offer business leaders innovative, profit boosting, scientific talks, along with great networking opportunities and fabulous coffee.

This time we give the ‘School runners’ a chance to join us at a fascinating venue. We start promptly at 09.30 and we will finish by eleven o’clock, but do arrive early for the first hit of coffee. You will hear useful presentations, meet fascinating people and fit this easily into your working day.

Final Friday Science is a collaboration between The British Psychological Society (South West), Set Squared* and Identity Realization. The events are aimed squarely at decision makers, with unapologetically top drawer speakers tasked to give you memorable scientific information to help your organization’s performance.

Our Speakers

Steve TurnerSteve Turner

Steve is Head of Innovation and Commerce at Libraries Unlimited. He will talk to the group about how Exeter Library’s scientific and technical facilities can ignite a business, enthuse its leaders and benefit the business community. Steve’s talk will concentrate on two invaluable resources.

The first of these is one of only 11 Business and Intellectual Property Centres (BIPC) in the UK. The Exeter BIPC provides a comprehensive collection of online databases and publications. It also provides practical workshops, one-to-one advice sessions and series of commerciallly beneficially talks. Trained business champions work alongside industry experts, providing guidance and information on a range of business issues.

Second, Steve will tell us about the Fab Lab, which can be visited at the end of our sesion. Fab Lab is a workshop that offers digital design and fabrication. It is both open access and not-for-profit; a business resource where anybody can invent and make just about anything. You could print t-shirts, produce electronic circuit boards, program a computer or even CNC machine an electric guitar.

In what promises to be a fascinating exposition, Steve will explain how commercial ideas can be prototyped and incubated in a Fab Lab. From here, they can benefit the inventors, their organizations and the wider business community.



Craig Knight

What Productivity conundrum? Or how your business can increase profit, happiness and productivity

Building a new dialogue between psychology, leadership and staff has been at the heart of television documentaries, academic debate and commercial discussions. Along with his international colleagues, Dr Craig Knight’s research directly challenges existing leadership, design and management practices. The effects are positive, dramatic and long lasting.

Craig has been studying leadership management and productivity for 14 years. Published and applied science consistently shows how leaders whose behaviour is congruent with ― and sympathetic to ― their colleagues can significantly improve all key business variables compared to the most widely promulgated leadership methods.

So pull up a chair and see how your business can make significant gains through developing better leadership, better workplace relations and better working environments. You can make more money, work better and have more engaged staff. There is no productivity conundrum as you will soon see.
