The DWF Young Professionals Network are delighted to invite you to our next event, open to all young professionals from any industry.
Innovation is a term used by companies all over the world. No matter how experienced you are, what your role is, where you are based or what team you work in, everyone can generate ideas.
During this event we will hear from three panellists from adidas, Fujitsu and DWF who will explore what innovation really means, look at how it works in their organisations and discuss some real life practical examples of when innovation has succeeded or failed.
The event is free of charge.
The event starts at 12pm (GMT) and ends at 13:00
