Most successful businesses, large or small, are built on
well managed intangible assets like intellectual property (IP).
Businesses create and use IP all the time, perhaps without
realising it. Whether it is the name of your company, branded products, website or even marketing materials,
the value of IP can far outweigh the value of your physical assets.
The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) helps businesses, innovators
and entrepreneurs understand how IP can create value from their ideas, turning
inspiration into sustainable business success.
Background – This very successful workshop has been designed
for a wide range of stakeholders including SMEs, advisors and a variety of
professional bodies. The workshop aims to give participants a good overview of intellectual
property and how it can impact on SMEs.
The audience is broken up into small teams and presented
with a series of scenarios in which intellectual property is crucial to a
business. Once the teams have debated a scenario amongst themselves, the
Intellectual Property Office speaker(s) take the audience through the answers
to the problem.
SMEs and Business advisers (accountants, bank staff, business coaches and mentors).
