26 April 2019


Venue: Abertay University, Kydd Building, 40 Bell Street, Dundee

Time: 08:30 to 12:30

Helen Potter is the only female Innovation Engineering Black Belt in Europe.

Innovation Engineering transforms innovation from a random gamble to a reliable system and is a new field of academic study and leadership science.

Helen will explain in this workshop what Innovation Engineering is and how, at its heart, is the notion of Meaningfully Unique ™. Helen will explain the power of Meaningfully Unique ™ and how it can be measured to understand the probability of success of an idea. This is an interactive half-day workshop where participants will get to practise measurement and so leave with a deep understanding of a tool that they can go on to use to validate their own ideas.

Helen's experience leading innovation in the food and drink sector spans 25 years. During her time as Innovation Manager for the Famous Grouse, Innovation Engineering Systems enabled Helen to add £12 million profit through innovation and portfolio expansion.

Potter Innovation is pleased to deliver this workshop in association with Can Do Festival 2019 and Abertay University Faculty of Food & Drink.
