- I was privileged meeting with Australian Defence Industry representatives on the Sunshine Coast and talk intrapreneurship and innovation before listening to their interesting industry supplier briefing.
I am very much looking forward to talking on manufacture in the corporate innovation endeavour, touching on cloud security considerations in this context of complex supply chains at the National Manufacturing Week Conference in May. As I research areas for this presentation, I will share some of the links I come across. This week, here’s a link to case studies I am reading from Innovate UK.
On this note, there is Women in manufacturing event with AIGroup, and Department of State Development on the Sunshine Coast Wednesday. If you could make it or are interested in knowing more, please do get in touch.
Have a good week ahead.
