Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 5 - The Change Challenge" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live. 

Discover how innovation leaders are implementing change in their companies to reduce red-tape and to cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow.

Ideas, the raw material of innovation, are everywhere. The danger is that we end up looking in the same places for them all the time. Good ideas aren’t exclusive to the C-suite. Those further down the ranks are often closer to the technology and cultural shifts that are taking place, and can provide great insights as well.

But workforces, like the management that governs them, can be blighted by homogeny: everyone is just like everyone else. In the sphere of ideas and creativity, homogeny begets more of the same. More of the same is an enemy of innovation. Bureaucracy (ideas get stuck) and hierarchy (ideas don’t get seen) are enemies of innovation.

How can innovation leaders implement structural change to reduce red-tape, make decision-making more horizontal and cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow. What are the technologies that might help facilitate this? And, crucially, how can the power at the center get out of the way of the exciting new ideas happening at the edge?

Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 4 - Customer-centric Innovation" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live.

Our 4th Innovation Dialogue will take a practical look at how corporates are redesigning their innovation processes to bring customer intelligence from the outside, in.

Customer-centric innovation turns traditional innovation models inside-out. Conventionally, ideas are sought inside a company with the product and service innovations they produce delivered to customers outside the company.

Customer-centric innovation, conversely, takes some of this process outside, by collaborating with consumers in the external environment and spaces they inhabit and then bringing their ideas back in.

It’s not a new concept, but as businesses move from a transactional to experiential mindset to stay in tune with evolving consumer expectations, it is an increasingly popular one. It means lots more winning ideas, engenders brand loyalty, creates a sense of community, and reduces the risk of new products and services failing to thrive in the marketplace because they are not really what consumers want.

Join the upcoming "Annual Emergency Medicine and Acute Care Conference" held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates by ME Conferences.

“Annual Emergency Medicine & Acute Care Conference” which is going to be held during September 13-15, 2018 at Dubai, UAE focusing on the theme “Medicine and the Present Emergency”.

We cordially invite all the participants who are interested in sharing their knowledge and research in the area of Emergency Medicine & Acute care. Emergency medicine is currently the prime focus of research in medicinal research. Emergency medicine is also called an accident and emergency medicine.

Emergency medicine is the medical specialty treatment for undifferentiated, unscheduled patients with injuries or illnesses requiring immediate medical attention in the acute phase. Emergency medicine is a field of practice based on the knowledge and skills to diagnose disease and injury affecting patients of all age groups in an acute phase. In most of the modern emergency departments, a large number of patients are treated by emergency physicians and decide according to their conditions either admitting them to the hospital or releasing them after treatment as necessary.

This has a wide scope with no boundaries of organ, system or disease pattern. Emergency medicine shares with family medicine the uniqueness of seeing all patients regardless of age, gender or any specifications.

The main goal of Acute Care 2018 to share knowledge and getting ideas from expertise that can help us to provide a healthy life for everyone and to fight with emergency situations.
