Did you know that ideasUK has been in operation now for 28 years?
As I’m sure you can imagine, in almost 30 years there have been a lot of changes going on in the world around us, not to mention one of the biggest changes – the Digital Revolution – enhancing the way in which we interact and communicate with each other, through the countless different types of technologies all so readily available at the click of a button.
So in turn, ideasUK joined the Digital Revolution and is now stepping it up a gear!
We are currently in the process of updating our website as well as relaunching our social media platforms; Facebook, Twitter and of course the ideasUK blog. We have a lot going on as always, especially over the next few weeks with ideasUK International Ideas Week™, and we look forward to sharing all of it with you through our website (www.ideasuk.com) and our various online platforms.
Another little fact for you.. did you know that in 2001, ideasUK launched a National day to focus on creativity and innovation in the workplace? National Ideas Day was launched on March 14th (Einstein’s birthday) and due to its success, we created International Ideas Week™ which now runs every year in May.
This year, International Ideas Week™ will be running from May 11th to May 15th.
Previously, during this week, we have hosted and facilitated Networking Events within our members’ organisations, to promote the importance of ideas and the impact they can have when utilised properly. Networking is a key tool to growth; giving you the opportunity to share your skills with others and in turn gaining invaluable insider knowledge and know-how to utilise and apply within your own organisation. However, the physical location of an Event can mean that you miss out from time to time, on potential opportunities to pick up invaluable information.
So with our ‘viva la revolution’ attitude, we have decided to host two events during this years International Ideas Week™ to share and promote the importance of ideas and idea schemes, with both events being held…. drum-roll please…. online, live and interactive to attendees. What’s more, we will be recording the event, making it available to view at any time, which means you won’t miss out even if you’re unable to attend.
Our first event will be held on May 12th 2015 at 11:00 a.m. GMT.
Details on how to attend will be going up shortly so watch this space!
