Ibec Regional Insights Series May 2016

The Innovation Imperative

Ibec Regional Insights Series May 2016The Innovation Imperative in assocation with Electric Ireland.

The Ibec Regional Insights Series will take place throughout the month of May in 7 key locations around the country. This year, we explore how innovation can drive your company’s performance.

Innovation comes in many shapes and sizes. It extends beyond cutting-edge science and technology, to firms who will try new ideas, technologies and business models that will help them to increase their market share. It also requires skilled staff who are sufficiently motivated to generate and implement these ideas. Innovation underpins the growth and dynamism of your region. This is why we are devoting our regional series to helping companies discover practical ideas and supports, and generate business growth from their innovation efforts.

Whether it’s developing new products and services, finding smarter ways to meet your customers’ existing requirements or learning how to collaborate with other organisations, our panel of experts will provide the answers and examples of best practice.
