The ‘GET’ series returned to DCU Business School on October 8th with GET Innovative. Titled “Teaching Elephants to Dance”, and organised by the Irish Institute of Digital Business, speakers from some of Ireland’s leading companies shared their insights on how to develop internal innovation teams & culture. This was a free event which attracted over 100 attendees.
Speakers included Aidan O’Neill from Irish Life’s Innovation Centre, Brian Marrinan from Propeller Shannon, and Frank Lu from IBM.
Rachael Corcoran, Innovation Lead at EY, Ger Mitchell, Group Human Resources Director at Permanent TSB, and Ryan Leitch Innovation Strategy & Delivery Manager at KBC Bank all shared their experiences on harnessing innovation within a corporate setting.
Also speaking on the day were Carole Donaghy, Head of Innovation Solutions at Ulster Bank, and Alan Doherty from Citi Innovation Lab.
One of the common themes running through speakers’ presentations was that big business can learn to innovate from start-ups, and that collaboration with start-ups is necessary to facilitate innovation in industry.
All the speakers brought great energy to the room and had a very engaged audience throughout. There were some really interesting topics covered and the day rounded up with a lively panel discussion! Thanks to all the speakers involved and to Dr Peter Robbins from DCU Business School who coordinated the panel.
The ‘GET’ series continues in DCU Business School with GET Digital which is another event not to be missed! Keep an eye out for registration details and book your place early.
