Innovation – Unlocking Future Growth

14 Dec 2010

Innovation is an interesting word. In my mind, it has taken on a whole new meaning with the growth of technology.

I looked it  up in the dictionary today. To innovate is to:

‘Introduce something new; make changes in anything established.’

When people think about innovation, very often they think about high-tech industries. In fact, innovation is also about adapting and changing what already exists so it’s relevant to all, particularly in this environment.

Innovation is the topic of the next WXN (Women’s Executive Network) breakfast taking place on Thursday, 18 November from 7am at the Conrad. It’s an interesting topic because it’s what I believe is relevant to all, regardless of industry, sector or size. We all need to innovate in order to thrive in this changed economy. The great thing is, we’ve got a fantastic panel of speakers lined up to take us through their insights and experiences on the topic. Joining us for breakfast on the 18th is Damini Kumar, EU Ambassador for creativity and innovation, director of design & creativity, NUI Maynooth, Irene Murphy, director, Magic Connections, UK, Sally Storey, vice-president and general manager, Pharmaceuticals GSK and Paul Farrell, group commercial director, Irish Times.

They each have a unique perspective to share and it promises to be a fantastic event.
