Made in Aberdeen Business Breakfast
Thursday 16th May 2013
A debate about innovation in Aberdeen
Is Aberdeen making the most of its inventive genius?
The Insider and Ledingham Chalmers ‘Made in Aberdeen’ business breakfast will be asking some challenging questions.
Aberdeen has a long history of invention and innovation. But are we inventive enough? Where are the gaps in the market for innovation? Is anything holding pioneering ideas back?
How can Aberdeen capitalise on its pioneering image to attract recruits to the oil and gas industry at a time when it desperately needs to bring more young people into the industry?
Are Aberdeen companies making the most of the changes in technology including capitalising on the Cloud?
Made in Aberdeen will feature an inspirational guest speaker and an authoritative panel to discuss the issues.
