With key expert speakers and high quality related materials, the Innovativity program designed to ensure businesses get the most out of innovative practices in their business.

Jim Walker, CEO of QMI Solutions, of which Innovativity presenter, the Australian Institute for Commercialisation is a division:

The inaugural Innovativity program in June was a great success, with a range of SMEs and manufacturers in attendance. We introduced them to a practical innovation framework to apply within their businesses and help take their innovations to global markets.

The June program also delivered tangible value for attendees: �This world leading course will give you the tools you need to maximise innovation in your organisation, in a targeted way that will help with attaining commercial success. This course is applicable to any business in any maturity� said attendee Adrian Morphett of Earth Systems.

On completion of Innovativity, attendees are also encouraged to utilise the ongoing 24/7 online support to supplement program learnings.
