The World Intellectual Property Organisation defines IP as being ‘the creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce’. Any business with talented, creative and engaged people creates IP on a daily basis and – while having access to good IP lawyers is always essential – no organisation can truly manage and exploit this IP without having inherent IP skills and know-how. Our IP training services range from conducting in-house seminars to making ‘on-demand’ online training modules available to you and your staff or members.

An organisation’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.
