Webinar with Ian Tollett

Tuesday 28th July, 6pm via Zoom
Members and two guests complimentary

Your commercial success stands or falls on the strength of your innovation and the strength of your brand. This event will teach you how to identify and protect your intellectual property in order to keep competitors off your patch and provide a hook for future investment. In order to succeed, an entrepreneur needs to provide a product which is better than that currently being provided, and market it in a more enticing way. The unique nature of the product and the associated branding together form your intellectual property, and failure to protect this risks letting competitors have a free ride on the back of your success.

Ian Tollett of Williams Powell has more than 25 years’ experience advising companies (from start-ups to multi-nationals) how to identify and protect their intellectual property. Using a case study of a Covid-19 testing app, he will walk you through the different types of intellectual property, and explain how they can be protected in a cost-effective way.

Tas will return to Home House and quote from his award winning “The Storytelling Book” his work on insight and inspiration, “The Inspiratorium” and his new book “InCitations” , to explain why we need to massage not message, how to find your Golden Thread and the power of headlines.
