Opportunity knocks - Growth through Innovation
10 Jul 2018
Venue: Canon, Woodhatch, Reigate RH2 8BF
Date: 10th July 2018
With issues like single use plastic & air pollution high in people’s minds, it is even more important for your business to reflect the needs & expectations of your customers.
Additionally, many companies expect their suppliers to have carbon footprint data or ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems. Others are more visionary, wanting detailed strategies in the circular economy or aligning to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Do you only respond to customer requests, or develop products & services they don’t yet know they need? What are the selling points you need, to demonstrate that you meet your customers’ requirements?
Anya Ledwith & Sandra Norval will cover three areas to help your business to grow through innovation:
- Systems - effective management systems & efficient processes
- Products - innovative products & materials
- Markets - identifying new markets & opportunities.
