"Just encouraging innovation is not enough. You need to initiate programs that show people how they can use creative techniques to come up with new solutions."

Paul Sloane
consultant, author

Breakout sessions will encourage interaction and plenty of time for discussion. The formats will offer a range of options from the opportunity to chat in an intimate setting or sit and listen to a presentation of recent research results.
