Why is owning Intellectual Property so important?
Intellectual Property expert Andrew Reith visits us from Wales to discuss the importance of owning intellectual property in business.
Andrew joined the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) in January 2012 offering help and advice in the Information Centre before becoming a Business Events Manager where he travelled the country arranging and hosting seminars and workshops. He now works as a Business Engagement Manager to spread IP information through pre and new start business support organisations.
Prior to working for the IPO Andrew worked for many years in a variety of customer service and sales roles within a range of industries from utilities to local media. Andrew is a native of South Wales and studied electronic engineering at the University of Manchester. He is a big sports fan and can regularly be found in the stands at Old Trafford or The Millennium Stadium.
This free event is open to all Plymouth University undergraduate/postgraduate students and staff.
