Event description


Welcome to the Innovation Network's first event of the 16/17 calendar.  

This event explores the natural tensions that arise at the interface between those marketing and those making high-tech products and services.  

If you are a senior technologist and/or a leader in a high-technology manufacturing firm, you will feel at home at our events. The Network is 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 shared and benefit from the serendipity that arises from peer interaction.  Such interaction is not so easily found in the workplace at a cetrain level of seniority and is further diminished by modern organisational structures.  

If this resonates please feel welcome to come to an event and get to know us. 

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.
