Innovation: Indispensable Engine of your Business

Guest speaker is Mr. John van der Linden. He will inspire you with why and how innovation is the indispensable engine of your business. Why so many "disruptive" business ideas are surfacing right now and why it is a wonderful time to deal with innovation. Questions as why innovation is essential and how can I as a (small) company make a difference with innovation, will be explained as well as how can I read the market and understand what is going to change? What do I need to respond to? What
is happening in the Innovation landscape and what is the shift from “Open Innovation” to the concept of "ecosystem"? Why
networking and creating trust are essential "skills" for innovation into the future?
