Business Perspectives event

Evan Davis shares his perspectives on innovation

Did you miss the inaugural Business Perspectives event at the Cumberland Hotel in London last week? Do not despair as we intend to bring highlights and insights from the day at a webinar on 4th December. Full details of the webinar and how to sign up will be posted here shortly.

The event itself was attended by over 100 practising managers, industry leaders and business academics, and provided a thriving hub of perspectives on innovation, both in the room and on Twitter (#ou_bp).

During the evening session our Visiting Professor and BBC Economics Editor Evan Davis was joined by Ken Keir, Executive Vice President, Honda Motor Europe, whilst Professor James Fleck then joined them both for a lively question and answer session.

The daytime masterclass considered the organisational structures, strategies and cultures needed to cultivate and support innovation, with insights and perspectives from Adrian Simpson (SAP), Win Dhat (Kates Kesler), David Harrison (True Potential), Dr Leslie Budd (OUBS), Imran Razzaq (Microsoft) and Professor James Fleck.
