The Entrepreneurial Engineer


Give yourself the means, confidence and motivation to succeed in business, creating wealth for you and your company by attending this Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) seminar on Tuesday 5th June at Robinson College, Cambridge.

You should attend if you are ...

• An engineer who wants to transform your ideas into commercial success

• Frustrated with your efforts so far, and looking for further inspiration

• Already successful, and keen to share what you have learned

• A current or aspiring entrepreneur, from student to director!

About the event

Being a business leader means more than technical ability. This event - which begins at 8.30 am and finishes at 5 pm - will explore how to turn good technology into successful business. Recognising that the knowledge and experiences of the delegates are as important as those of the speakers, this forum will help you to solve your most pressing business problems and generate ides for how you can turn your creative engineering into commercial success.

A series of thought-provoking lectures highlighting key contributors to the success or failure of business ideas will be followed by an extended “open space” session. Attendees will be able to select any topic within the themes to discuss, to learn from each others’ methods, ideas and expertise. This session is fully facilitated and aims to ensure that you are able to discuss the issues that affect you.

Key topics to be covered include:

Unlock your inner entrepreneur

Contrary to popular belief, innovation is as strong in established companies as it is in startups, and is more likely to succeed if given a chance. But established companies tend to be highly risk averse. You will discover how to overcome barriers to entrepreneurship within companies; learn to embrace risk as a positive state, and how to use support of your company’s structure to best advantage.

Learning from mistakes

You will learn why failure is often as important as success. The seminar will give you guidance on how you can turn your mistakes into successes and why going through the process will bring better long-term results.

It’s who you know that counts

This age-old saying continues to hold just as true in today's networked, always-on world - personal networks play as large a part as ever in personal and business success. You will learn about the whats, whys, whos, hows, whens and wheres of personal networking, and how you can combine old-fashioned person-to-person networking with new online systems.

Three reasons why you should attend

Gain guidance into new ways of working within your company; how “thinking outside the box” can let you break down organisational barriers, taking advantage of the company support network without being constrained by its controls.

Take advantage of self-selecting groups to address the issues that are important to you. You will be able to tap into the collective knowledge and experience of every attendee to solve the problems that are specific to you and your business needs.

Strengthen links with other companies in your area and meet people locally and nationally who might just be the support partner you are looking for.
