Ideas in Practice is a free seminar series bringing together business people, policy makers and academics. The events take place in Leeds and London where we discuss important topics and share ideas to help companies and public bodies both in the UK and globally.
We address key issues in areas such as technology and innovation, finance and the economy, international business strategy as well as environmental sustainability and inclusive societies. The seminars give you the opportunity to:
- Gain insights from leading experts
- Network with people from different areas with different perspectives
- Collaborate on projects, small to large
- Take part in dialogue on important issues of the day
- Find out what other people are doing and how they overcome problems
