Kendal gets Wired to protect Business

John Freeman
While this is an 'out of area' event, we all know how many web and technical gurus live in the Lancaster and Morecambe area, so we thought we'd highlight the first Kendal Wired City Reconnected event will be held in partnership with Cobbett’s LLP and Kendal ICT Cluster Group. (If anyone knows about similar events in our two towns we're more than happy to plug them).

The event will be held at Brewery Art Centre, Kendal on Thursday 29th April starting at 6.00pm

The event will commence with a presentation from Susan Hall on Protecting Your Business IP - Avoid getting there! (Looking at stages and actions available to protect your business’s Intellectual Property by avoiding putting your business in the position of IP risk in the first place).

Defending your business against an intellectual property threat - whether an accusation that you have infringed third party rights or someone else's attack on your intellectual property - is neither enjoyable nor cheap. This talk runs through a number of low cost, pro-active strategies which businesses can adopt to minimise intellectual property risks and position themselves to cope better with such risks as do arise. It will include discussions of different types of intellectual property and the means of protecting it, as well as consideration of non-disclosure agreements, IP provisions in employee contracts, and practical protection of intellectual property in a work environment.

This presentation will be followed by "collaborative networking" facilitated by the Wired City Reconnected team

The Wired City Reconnected events are ‘collaborative’ networking events aimed at the digital, creative and ICT business interested in potential collaborations or the chance to share and exchange ideas. They're facilitated by Les, Fiona and Immy, who will provide a bespoke matching and introduction service prior to the event.

So whether your business has a current skills gap or you are looking to collaborate with others to meet new or current client’s needs, these events are for you. Wired City Reconnected events are all about making the best use of your time, through providing an invaluable networking opportunity.
