Turning Innovation into Reality

This exciting and informative Young Engineers Australia, Queensland and College of Leadership and Management, Queensland event will show you how to turn innovative ideas into business realities, with experienced guest speakers, interactive stalls demonstrating real-life problems from various local companies, and valuable networking opportunities.

Do you have great ideas, but no idea how to turn them into reality? Think you can help turn your business around, but struggling to get your manager’s attention when presenting your ideas? New graduates often come into organisations with a fresh set of eyes and a new perspective, as well as knowledge of new techniques and alternative approaches to traditional situations, which have the potential to add significant value to employers and businesses. 

The challenge is how to have these ideas heard. 

This year’s innovation event focuses on the commercialism of innovative ideas, with tips and techniques from Brian Ruddle, an industry leader from the innovation space and Managing Director of Impact Innovation Group. 

Brian is the Managing Director of Impact Innovation Group (IIG), leading a team of specialist innovation and technology commercialisation practitioners based in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and China.

Since founding the company in 2006, Brian has developed innovation systems for all size enterprises, from SMEs to multinationals. Working closely with governance boards and senior managers, he helps derive value from innovation programs and commercialisation efforts, turning ideas into assets.

Brian draws on more than two decades of experience across Asia, Africa and the Pacific, where he managed projects in 15 countries in sectors such as health, education, mining, agriculture, finance, trade, and water. He is a regular speaker at innovation conferences in Australia and overseas.

If you want to hear how Brian takes progressive and innovative ideas from zero to hero, then make sure you join in this event, including the Q&A session and interactive group activities, while enjoying finger food and networking opportunities.
