2021 Programme

Innovation Partnership meetings help our C-level members stay updated on the latest thinking and applications in the innovation economy. They provide practical solutions on how their organisations need to rapidly change and adapt.


We review the best entrepreneurs, innovators and corporates who are changing the status quo and provide members with an opportunity to discuss how these developments impact their own strategies and ensure they can future-proof their businesses.
