ONE-TO-ONE: How to Protect your Business Brand, Technology and Innovation

03rd October 2019 | 10:00 - 13:00 ONE-TO-ONE

Event description

Every business that spends time and effort (and money) developing new products, brands and technologies needs to protect it to help the business grow and succeed. This is the same for every business, from solopreneur and start-up to FTSE100 and Fortune500 - everybody has Intellectual Property. So what can you do? What should you do? How can you take advantage of it? How can you ensure that it addresses your immediate business needs and helps you achieve your mid- and long-term plans and aspirations?

What will I Learn

  • Introduce you to the various types of intellectual property and how they can be used.
  • Let you talk about and get advice on issues relevant to your business.
  • Help you understand the opportunities available to protect and strengthen your business, your brands, designs and technology.
  • Make use of UK Government R&D Tax Credit and Patent Box schemes to reimburse you for investing in developing new technology, and to reward you for successful technology.
  • Make sure that IP works for you.

Who should attend?

Managing Directors and Business owners.
