A Design and Innovation Session in conjunction with Belron International and the HiveMind Network

Belron UK Head Office, Milton Park, Stroude Road, , Egham , Surrey

The Design and Innovation Workshop is for those championing innovation in their organisation at a senior level. The workshop is designed to enable you and your colleagues to share and gain insights from other successful innovators and explore ways of removing the impediments that can so often slow or hinder progress.

Belron International has developed a reputation for innovation in many of their markets and are enthusiastic supporters in looking at new ways to tackle the big challenges.   

In conjunction with the HiveMind Network and its members, Belron are hosting this highly interactive workshop session. We will be using techniques commonly found in the “unconference” model, an unusual name but a great way of creating results!

Attendance will include refreshments on arrival at lunchtime and canapés for the early evening networking alongside participation in all the afternoon sessions. In lieu of a ticket price, Belron has asked for a donation (suggested £50) towards their charity www.afrikatikkun.org. Which is a fantastic charity providing vital development and opportunities to underprivileged children in Africa.  You can donate using this link – https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/HiveMindNetworkinPartnershipwithBelron
