This Masterclass event begins where last week’s ‘Managing Innovation’ workshop finished off. In the earlier workshop, the accent was on the working through aspects of culture, process and management to nurture the initial spark of an idea to produce economic or social value.  Delegates worked together to explore the practicalities of implementing these ideas in the real world.

During this Masterclass their findings and reflections on the workshop will be discussed and the important lessons learned presented in an entertaining and informative forum session. Two of the presenters of the Workshop, Mark Neild and Richard Byford will help by summarizing some of the key points and revisiting some of the information about sources of help and funding for innovation.

The evening will be structured to encourage participation and networking.

Registration will commence at 6.30pm, with the main event commencing at 7.00pm.  Light refreshments will be available on arrival.
