Welcome to the Innovation Network's second event of the 16/17 calendar.
This event explores three of the major innovations coming our way that are already beginning to impact work and daily life: autonomous vehicles, the internet of things and big data.
If you are a senior technologist and/or a leader in a high-technology manufacturing firm, you will feel at home with the Innovation Network. Participants are an impressive peer community of technical experts and leaders in high tech manufacturing. The emphasis is on connecting, learning and keeping informed of emerging trends. Participants gain inspiration from the material discussed and benefit from the serendipity that arises from peer interaction. Such interaction is not so easily found in one's workplace at a certain level of seniority and is further diminished by modern organisational structures.
If you fit the above profile, please feel welcome to come to an event and get to know us. We will get in touch to help orient you for your first event.
Our programme fields excellent speakers at the forefront of their topic. Events are about peer-to-peer learning and connecting. Expect:
a) high quality presentations
b) valuable time for group dialogue to help attendees consider how ideas might be applied to add value back in one's own organisation; and
b) enjoyable networking among members, guests and non-members present.
