Testimonials

HEINEKEN

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

AVENTIS

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.

BONAR

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

Meliá Galgos Madrid

The Meliá Galgos is the perfect option whether travelling for business or pleasure, thanks to its excellent location in the city centre, its fully equipped and comfortable facilities, and the quality of its service. Amongst its magnificent facilities, the hotel provides a fully equipped gym for the exclusive use of guests, a sauna, hydromassage, as well as a public car park.

With its privileged location in the neighbourhood of Salamanca (one of the most exclusive and elegant districts in the city), it is very close to the best shopping centres and Madrid’s trendy boutiques and shops. It is also close to the main museums: the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum.

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

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.

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.

DIAGEO

Global Innovation & Brand Change Director

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

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'.
