About this Event

Next Topic: How to bring new ideas to life within your organisation

The North West has a fantastic heritage of scientific discovery, engineering prowess, technology advancement and artistic design. Our newly formed Innovation Forum is helping to build better connectivity and collaboration with peers in order to support one another’s innovation goals; supporting growth in our local markets and broader ecosystem.

After a successful forum launch in May which focused on ‘culture’, we’d be delighted if you could join the second event in our series of quarterly innovation meet-ups, on 12th September in Manchester. By joining, you’ll become a member of an exciting Innovation Forum designed exclusively for innovation leaders at large, regional organisations and you’ll set the agenda for future forum topics.

Our next session will explore different approaches, methodologies and mechanisms large organisations use to create new ideas, decide how to take them forward and track their success. There’s different ways of encouraging ‘intrapreneurship’ in heavily complex organisations and we’ll also want to hear how you do it and whether it is delivering effectively for your business.

You’ll hear from David Moss who works in the R&D department at Siemens. David will share real life practical examples on just how they bring ideas to life at Siemens, working with UK and global colleagues to develop the most commercially impactful ideas.
