DIAGEO

Global Innovation & Brand Change Director

A great opportunity to obtain insights and network with colleagues from a range of industries. Very professionally organised.

SABIC PETROCHEMICALS

Global Innovation Manager, Sabic Polymers

Good platform to discuss many challenging aspects of how to make innovation work.

ASTRAZENECA

Diversity Director Research & Development

The presentations were of very high quality and the atmosphere was one of inclusion rather than competition. The openness with which information was exchanged was unusual and this was critical to the effectiveness of the conference. The audience had as much to contribute as the presenters and it was a refreshing change that they were not only 'talked at' but 'listened to'.

CRISTAL GLOBAL

General Manager for R&D and Technical Sales Services

The conference is well organised, right duration, right number of attendees. It is coherent, topic focused and allows people from different industries to share common concerns and solutions.

HEINEKEN

Group Innovation Manager

Plenty of time built into the programme to allow delegates to discuss ideas & approaches and develop contacts.

BONAR

Director Research & Development & Innovation

Excellent investment of time to learn best practices in business and great inspiration for putting it to work tomorrow in our working environment.

UNILEVER

Director, New Businesses Unit, Global Technology and R&D Str

A useful event sharing approaches to leveraging partnerships to create new business opportunities – A varied array of business with opportunities to network-share approaches on cross industry.

AVENTIS

Vice President, Head of Disease Groups

I have enjoyed the meeting and was in fact very positively surprised. It was very good to get this cross-industry feedback and I took back quite a few refreshing ideas which are worthwhile to follow up. This was definitely no waste of time and I will look forward to E.N.G.’s next meeting.

LONZA

Senior Vice President, Head of Chemical Research & Developme

Rich and vibrant conference, with an excellent mix of speakers from SME, mid-sized, and large companies.

BARILLA

Product Development Director - Soft Categories

It’s a nice way to become more open. And being open is a promise for innovation

BURGER KING

Innovation & Commercialisation Manager EMEA

A very well organised conference with a great selection of varied delegates and speakers. I found it an excellent opportunity to network with new people who I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet in another forum.
