Pitching Innovation – an Inside Track

2nd March 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

£75.00 – £210.00

We are delighted to host this two hour session with Jon Brigg (previously of Yorkshire Water), where he will be exploring what it is that water companies are looking for when it comes to evaluating innovation options and what suppliers need to do to be business ready when talking to the utilities.

Commenting on this session, where the objective is to learn how best to be business-ready when bringing an idea to market, Jon said:

I’ve evaluated hundreds of technologies pertinent to the water sector. Some good, some not so good and some brilliant. The same can be said for the pitches, the quality of documentation, data and presentation.  Not once has a company presented exactly what I wanted to see as an evaluator.  And that’s OK, perfection is subjective!  But most times, I never got close to seeing what I needed, and often asked for. I was presented what the company wanted to tell me. Let me help you.

Who should attend this session?

  • Innovators & Company founders – established companies and new to market
  • Business Development Directors, CEO’s of SME’s

You will finish the session with a clear understanding of:

  • Where your idea fits in the marketplace?
  • How to have the right conversation with people at the water companies?

  • What do water company decision makers need? What keeps them awake at night?”
