i4's Managing Director, Brian Combe, will be on a panel session from 9.50am - 10.50am entitled "How To Identify Innovative Opportunities And Avoid Innovation Killers".

Synopsis: Fear, lack of focus, engine failure, the wrong ROI and a reluctance to invest have been identified as common barriers or innovation killers. An engaging and enlightening workshop featuring real-life case studies of businesses talking honestly about innovation and the barriers they have faced, plus guidance on how to harness support to maximise innovative opportunities.

As a product design firm that has supported the development of in excess of 100 products to market, we understand the value of excellence in design and how even innovative ideas can fail in the market if they aren’t well executed. Our aim is to transform our customers’ ideas into beautifully designed products that are beautifully engineered. Right from the offset our team works with our customers to focus discussions around how we go about leveraging the true potential of the innovation into pragmatic, cost effective & profitable product solutions that provide the building blocks for success and growth.

So following the panel session, Brian will be available for 1-to-1 sessions with individuals and companies looking to advance their product.
