Continue To Grow participated at the XXV ISPIM (8-11 June 2014) and Open Innovation 2.0 (12 June 2014) conferences both held in Dublin, Ireland. These are considered the most important European events in the area of Innovation.
Rui Patrício (CEO, at the left hand side of the photograph) and Maie Peetri (Innovation Consultant, on the right) represented Continue To Grow at the ISPIM conference. Continue To Grow exhibited a booth and Rui Patrício presented a paper “Innovation Management Key Industry Insights “ which strongly contributed to a very interesting discussion and experience sharing among practitioners.
Generally, both events provided excellent environments to meet other experts, gather valuable insights and develop important relations with potential partners. Besides the conferences, we also attended the Innovation Luminary Awards that was held in tandem with the Open Innovation 2.0 conference.
Continue To Grow also launched in Dublin an online self-assessment tool The Path for Growth – an Innovation Journey that allows organizations to develop their own roadmap for innovation practices.
To complement this online tool, we created an innovative learning and networking game, the “Innovation Stickers Card Collection”. Those combined tools generated a vivid cloud of excitement, which is a good example of the type of experience that Continue To Grow is able to deliver.
Continue To Grow would like to thank everyone who supported us on this important step. The new generation of innovation management approach has arrived and we hope to continue surprising you!
