Manchester Businesses Get “A Groundbreaking Opportunity”

Innovate with Confidence is a new programme that will enable SMEs to open the doors to innovating quickly, reliably and successfully in a changing world.

During a course of four workshops, managers of Greater Manchester SMEs will work with experts such as Nigel Newman of the Edward de Bono Foundation UK - one of only 5 global lifetime master trainers that would usually only be available to the country's largest companies.

The practical 1-day workshops combine insights from business model engineering, neuroscience and practical thinking skills to help leaders develop a fresh perspective to apply current solutions to overcome their immediate business challenges.

The scheme has been described as “a groundbreaking opportunity” by Greater Manchester Chamber’s President, Moneeb Awan, who adds, “Irrespective of the size of your business, the practical benefits of Innovate with Confidence are hugely important. SMEs will learn to develop the tools, embody the perspective and cultivate the contacts to make successful innovation an in-built habit.”

There are just 25 places available on the programme, which starts on 23rd February. Each place has a value of £1800 but is available at a heavily subsided cost of just £99 for all 4 workshops, thanks to the support of the Manchester Innovation Investment Fund. Demand is expected to be strong so companies keen to develop the tools and insights to innovate with confidence are urged to register via
