It was a pleasure to give a remote keynote presentation at the University of Cambridge’s Open Innovation Forum (OI), hosted by the Kerry Group in Dublin Ireland as part of the IfM Management of Technology Policy group.

The keynote was titled: “How Do You Develop an Intrapreneurial Culture Whilst Co-innovating with Your Customers?”

Special thanks to Dominic Oughton & Paul Christodoulou for being so adaptive to the situation and making it a success. Shorter sessions, regular stretching and virtual breakout rooms thoroughly recommended to others. Some very inspirational discussions from leading food and beverage firms in how they’re rapidly responding to COVID-19.

One of the key topics of the meeting was how to drive an ‘intra-prenurial’ mentality by bringing entrepreneurial thinking into established companies. It featured keynotes from Peter Robbins of Dublin City University, Milan Samani of TIL Ventures and Mike Pinder of Board of Innovation.
