Webinar: The DNA of innovation for the Legal and Construction Professions

Venue:
We know that every sector needs to be constantly reinventing itself and innovating. We also know that clients expect their representatives to be resourceful, creative thinkers. Contrary to popular belief, the most creative ideas are not unique or random. They have a template which makes them learnable, robust and applicable to any sector. What is more, they are used not outside but inside the box. In this webinar, Rachel Audigé will share some of the templates and the principles of Systematic Inventive Thinking that apply to them and work with the group to explore their value for Legal and Construction Professions.

Webinar: NEC: A NEW BENCHMARK FOR CONTRACTS IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY?
