A new series of Innovation Workshops is being launched by ViVet – the veterinary innovation network run by the RCVS – to help provide veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses with the tools needed to turn ideas into innovations.
To be held in Cambridge in January and February next year, the innovation and creativity training programme will cover a broad spectrum of innovation methodologies across two one-day courses. Delegates can choose to attend one or both courses depending upon their experience and stage in the innovation process.
The courses will be led across two days by veterinary surgeons Guen Bradbury and Greg Dickens (pictured) both experts in supporting innovation.
The first course, on 16 January 2019, will introduce tools and techniques to help individuals and organisations think creatively and guide participants through the innovation process from identifying need, selecting an idea and developing it into a concrete concept.
The second course, on 20 February 2019, will cover how to test ideas and refine solutions, how to develop business models, and how to win support and funding to maximise the chances of the innovation’s success.
Anthony Roberts, Director of Leadership and Innovation at the RCVS says: “Our ideation workshop is not just for entrepreneurs or innovators, it’s to give vets and vet nurses the tools and techniques to create new ideas or nurture existing ones. These could be ideas for starting a new business, a new product, new content, or even just inventive ways of talking about or marketing an existing product or service.”
Each full-day course costs £100, including course materials, certificate of completion, lunch, and all refreshments. Booking the full workshop, ie both courses, will attract a 10% discount.
