LATi Bar: Talking Scientific Business Challenges

June 8, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

image4Date Change: June LATi Bar is to be held on 8th June

Meet us @ LATi Bar to talk about business topics that matter to you as a leader of a technology, scientific or engineering business.

No two LATi Bar meets are the same. In May we had some illuminating and entertaining conversations about topics as diverse as the new GDPR, debating whether dark matter exists, putting forward alternative means of getting goods into space using space elevators and the materials science that could enable that.

We also had a healthy debate about renewables and the energy landscape, and serious discussion about how tech business can get better at doing business development.

Conversation starters for your June LATi Bar:

  • Industry 4.0
  • Access to a skilled workforce
  • Apprenticeship Levy
  • The Industrial Strategy and Regional Initiatives
  • Barriers to growth for East Midlands SMEs

So, what else would you like to talk about in June? Where will the conversation take us …

LATi Bar now meets in a private room at The Anchor Inn in Hathern

We had a very successful first meet at the Anchor in October .. an exhilarating discussion about engineering, mathematical statistics and selling complex technologies and concepts. Our November LATi Bar was about extending Product life led by Mari Lefebvre and Jon Knight.

LATi Bar will be meeting at Anchor Inn in Hathern from now on – though, we will continue to hold workshops and knowledge exchange events at ATIC.

There’s plenty of parking at the Anchor. Skylink buses to and from Loughborough city centre stop near the pub. And we have our own private function room with plenty of drinks on tap from the bar.

What’s LATi Bar ? Probably the best networking locally for scientists and engineers!

  • Talk about issues that are important to you in business
  • Contribute to the conversation and share your learning
  • Gain insights you wouldn’t get from a formal presentation
  • Hear how local businesses do things – real world case studies
  • Take away actions and ideas of value to your business

LATi Bar meetings are informal and interactive. Each event is themed around a business topic, with a two or more experts invited to talk to us about a particular business issue. It is not about speakers pitching for business – it is about genuinely sharing best practice, ‘how to do x”, and ‘where to go’ information.

LATi Bar events have focused on a diversity of business topics: Growth Accelerator, inspiring Enterprise, Access to Finance, the value of Intellectual Property (IP) and patenting, Value Propositions, what to do to prepare for a business crisis and employee share option schemes, new product development, R&D Tax Credits, GDPR and the Internet of Things, recruiting for STEM roles and more.

This event is free of charge to LATi members. Just pay the venue for your eats and drinks.
